Vail Vision September 28, 2006

Greetings in Jesus

Here in St. Louis, the weather is beginning to turn from summer to fall. This morning, there was frost on the car and I had to wear a sweater. Fall in St. Louis is very dramatic. The leaves change and the trees become barren. Yet we rest confident in the fact that after winter, the trees will turn green again.Last week we had a symposium on the Resurrection of Christ. As God's people we can be confident that we too will bloom again and come to life when God grants to us an eternal spring of new life. But it is still cold here.

I need a good dose of Arizona! Wait, I will get a good dose of Arizona! God willing, I will see you soon! This Sunday is LWML Sunday. We are grateful that the District LWML provided a grant to Christ Lutheran Vail of almost $10,000 to be used for Children's Ministry. The "Me Too" program is yet another way that Christ Lutheran Vail can meet the needs of Children.

Blessings to all of you.
David Hook

 

LWML
This Sunday is Lutheran Women's Missionary League Sunday. This organization is 64 years old. Today you will see a new banner LET THERE BE LIGHT in celebration of this event. Lutheran Women in Mission, LWiM, of Christ Lutheran Vail was started in May 2006 and received their Charter on June 10, 2006, at the Pacific Southwest District Conference in California. All ushers, greeters, and readers are women of this group.

The mission of the Lutheran Women's Missionary League is to assist each woman of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod-in affirming her relationship with the Triune God so that she is enabled to use her gifts in ministry among the people of the world.
Our motto is "Serve the Lord With Gladness" Psalm 100:2
All women of the church are invited to be part of this group.
Everyone is invited to join us after the service for coffee, juice and baked treats.

 

"ME TOO.. -- A NEW ADDITION TO THE SUNDAY SCHOOL HOUR!
"Me Too.. is for children, birth to preschool age, and their parents. "Me Too.. gives the little tots the opportunity to sing songs and hear Bible stories, just like the “big kids'. The new "Me Too.. class will begin the third Sunday in October, the same time as the other classes. If you have any questions, contact Shannon Field at 777-3009.

 

NURSERY NEEDS
Tara Clark is our Nursery Coordinator and has been manning the Nursery during the church service for children infant to four year olds. She would like to have some games, puzzles, books and toys available for the children. If you have something that is in good condition and age appropriate, a bin will be near the Welcome Center for the next two Sunday's. Tara will also have a sign-up sheet for Nursery Volunteers and also one for providing snacks in the Nursery.
