MIDWEEK WORSHIP SERVICE
Our pilot worship experience on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month was very successful this summer. In order to see how this would work during a school year we are going to extend the pilot trial of this worship offering throught the fall and our Advent Season in December. If you have not yet checked out the Tuesday worship please feel invited to do so. Beginning in September we will gather around the worship with the major stories from the book of Genesis.
September 8th & 22nd, October 13th & 27th, November 10th & 24th at 7pm.
“The Journey of our Call”
How have you experienced God in your lifetime?
What is your call story?
What were the moments you felt closet to our God?
What were the times you felt God most estranged from your life?
Who have been the people that have impacted your spiritual life this most?
These are just but a few of the questions we will be reflecting upon this fall in
this intentional time. This begins on September 13th.
This year’s ELCA Youth Gathering was held in Detroit, MI. Nine of our youth, three CRLC youth leaders along with five more youth, and three more youth leaders from Peace Evangelical Lutheran Church traveled together to attend the Gathering. Over thirty thousand youth and adult leaders were in attendance. Daily activities included: some sort of daytime event followed by an evening gathering. Evening gatherings included guest speakers as well as live music! Each church group was given a service project to do as a group. Each day, approximately 110 busloads of youth and leaders traveled to areas in need, and painted, repaired, and cleaned abandoned homes as well as served food at shelters.
The Crosswalk and Outdoor Chapel are open!
