Journey Through Bethlehem 2015

Journey Through Bethlehem is multi-denominational ministry of different churches in Huntsville, Texas, combining their resources to share this gift with the community. We want to bring the “Good News” at this time of year in a very memorable way by recreating that special night in Bethlehem when Jesus was born.

The 2015 Journey Through Bethlehem will be Fri 12/4 and Sat 12/5 from 6pm to 9pm

*****************************************************************

Faith Lutheran Women is sponsoring a “Pounding Party” for Vicar James, Krista and boys as they relocate from Sugarland.

There will be a collection spot in the narthex of the church for members to drop off canned goods, cleaning supplies, staples such as flour, sugar, pasta, non-perishable items, etc.  or  gift cards to Krogers, HEB or Brookshire Brothers or maybe even Home Depot, as many times when you relocate there are repairs etc.,

 Vicar James’ Ordination and Installation as Associate Pastor at Faith will be on Sunday, June 28th, at 4:00 p.m.

 Please help us welcome Vicar James, Krista, Aaron and Noah to Faith Lutheran  Church!

 ****************************************************************

The Board of Christian Education will be offering “Children’s Learning Church” beginning this Sunday, June 7th.  Children 3 years to 10 years that are having trouble sitting and focusing on the church service will be able to leave during the sermon hymn. Parents will bring their children to Billie Lyons in the Aquarium, which will be set up like the sanctuary, and the worship service will be playing on the monitor. 

They will be able to get the wiggles out and when they are ready they will sit through the rest of the sermon.  Parents will  pick up their children in time for Communion. We are asking for parents to volunteer to help Ms. Billie. We will need one parent to stay this Sunday and there will be a sign-up sheet in the narthex for future Sundays.    

 The Nursery will be available for children 2 years and younger as a “cry room” for parents to stay with their children until they are ready to return to church.

 The Board of Christian Education is also looking for two volunteers a Sunday to help with “Summer Sunday School” for children.  Vicar James will lead the Bible story time and volunteers will help with crafts.

 If you have any questions please contact Carol Brady, any Board of Christian Education member or the church office.

Check out our Little Lutheran Library 
 
If you see a book and want to read it, take it! If you don't return it, that's ok. No one will mind. And if you have a book (or several) that you are finished with, bring it in!
 
If you bring in books to share, please make sure that they are gently used and not overly dated (such as political nonfiction from the 1980s). If it is something that someone would enjoy reading today, bring it!
  
God's blessings to you in your reading! 


Wednesday School Chapel

On Wednesdays, we will journey into a new venture with our Elementary School Chapel. Chapel for K-4 will be a 30 min worship service using screens, music, and also now using the Lord's Prayer and the Apostles' Creed. It is my hope that week after week, our kids will learn these valuable tools of worship that will build up their own walks in Jesus. I invite you, our members, to join us in chapel at 9:45 am on Wednesdays to start your day in worship. ALSO....this will be a great way to support our school and surround our kids with the love of Jesus. As they hear us, their brothers and sisters in Jesus in worship with them, they will be built up in God's love as will we! So please, when you have time, plan to join us. You will be blessed! Thanks so much I pray you can make it!
