Faith in the Home

Caring Conversation  -  Daily Devotion  -  Traditions and Rituals  -  Acts of Service
 

Last year parents learned these "Four Keys of Faith Formation". This year, we will discuss additional practical ways to implement these keys. Since parents are the most influential factor in a child's faith formation, First Lutheran Church will again be offering this 3-part Bible study for parents of children ages 0-6th grade on how to continue to teach and encourage faith in the home. Come together to join other parents to learn and share ideas with each other. These studies will be held on Sept. 19, Oct. 24, and Nov. 14. at 6:00-7:30pm. Dinner and childcare will be provided by the congregation.
 

What a Difference a Daddy Makes

We all know that involved fathers boost their daughters’ academic achievement, promote their emotional health, increase their compassion for others, and help set them up for success. Based on the book What a Difference a Daddy Makes, by Dr. Kevin Leman, Pastor Grayl will be leading a fathers’ Bible study that will help give practical ideas, inspiration, and provide specific direction for helping daughters grow into loving, confident, caring adults. Join other fathers in this weekly Bible study beginning in January. Exact day and time of the week will be announced.
 

Parents’ Night Out

Beginning January 16, 2015, First Lutheran will begin offering free childcare and a simple dinner for children ages 0-12, one Friday a month from 6:00-8:30pm. This ministry is intended to give parents the opportunity to enjoy a night out without the worries and extra expenses of babysitters. We hope that not only will our own congregation members find this ministry helpful and uplifting, but also friends of our congregation families.  More details will be announced soon!

 

 

 

FLC TV - October 5 Sermon - Philippians 3: Forgetting What Is Behind

E-mail Print PDF

Philippians 3:7-14: But whatever were gains to me I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ—the righteousness that comes from God on the basis of faith.  I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, attaining to the resurrection from the dead. Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

 

FLC TV - September 28 Sermon - Matthew 21: Goodness

E-mail Print PDF

Matthew 21:28-32: “What do you think? There was a man who had two sons. He went to the first and said, ‘Son, go and work today in the vineyard.’ ‘I will not,’ he answered, but later he changed his mind and went. “Then the father went to the other son and said the same thing. He answered, ‘I will, sir,’ but he did not go. “Which of the two did what his father wanted?” “The first,” they answered. Jesus said to them, “Truly I tell you, the tax collectors and the prostitutes are entering the kingdom of God ahead of you. For John came to you to show you the way of righteousness, and you did not believe him, but the tax collectors and the prostitutes did. And even after you saw this, you did not repent and believe him."
