Sermon Series: The Gospel of Mark

Join us as we work through the Gospel of Mark, verse by verse. Each verse will be read throughout the year. We will talk about the themes as they are presented in Mark’s Gospel. Typically, we go through each of the Gospels, but we order the passages according to the liturgical year. This year, we will present the readings in the order Mark presents them.

January 21 - Mark 2:23-27

January 28 - Mark 3:1-19

February 4 - Mark 3:20-34

 

 

Adult Ed Bible study - Sundays at 9:30am

How to help people during and after a crisis or traumatic event. What should you say? What should you not say? What do you do? We will spend several weeks looking at how to help people following a difficult situation- the death of a loved one, someone loses their job, a child is badly hurt, etc. What do you do in these situations? We will also spend time in the series talking about grief and how people grieve differently.

Rise Against Hunger: Family Food Packing Event

On April 22nd, our church and preschool will help put together 10,000 meals for hungry children around the world.  We will be working with RISE AGAINST HUNGER.  Here are two ways you and your child can help out.

  1. Mark your calendar!  On Sunday, April 22nd we will be assembling the packaged meals.  The project will take place from 3-5 pm in our fellowship hall.    Kids age 4 and up can work in the assembly lines filling up the bags. 
  2. Help raise money!  Each meal costs only 29 cents.  One quarter is very tangible to your child.  One quarter=One meal.  Help teach your child about children around the world that do not have enough food to eat and help your children realize that they can make a difference!  Please consider donating to this worthy cause.  Checks can be written to Light of Christ Lutheran Church.

How the Food Packaging Works:

It is an immensely fun, hands-on and rewarding experience for anyone of any age.   We will be helping fill plastic bags with rice, soy protein, vitamins and dehydrated vegetables. After we fill the bags, we seal them and pack them up for shipping.  Most of these meals are going to feed children in schools around the world.

The 1,000

We will pray walk the University Park Neighborhood for a 1,000 hours. This ambitious project is how we will love our neighbors in this community. When we walk the neighborhood, we will all wear our Light of Christ shirts. You can pick up your Prayer Walk sheet in the narthex and turn it in with the offering.
