Pastor's Message
Dear Friends in Christ,

We Are Church Together! That's been our theme for the year, and it's been great to live into that understanding that whatever or age or place in life, the Holy Spirit brings us together. (In Martin Luther's words, "the Spirit calls, gathers, enlightens, and sanctifies the whole Christian church on earth!")

In everyday terms, what does that mean? Well, we're trying this new Sunday School time of 9:00-9:30, so that kids can worship with us, and so that in that time slot, we can also offer some adult options.

It means on the weekend of Oct. 6-7, Missionary Dr. Steve Friberg will be with us to share what it means to be connected in service with God's people half way around the world! It means something as simple as getting your picture taken for the new Picture Directory, so that we can help put names and faces together, and grow connections. It means something as exciting as a Matching Gift Challenge! One of our members stopped in recently, saying "I want to do some good with $5,000!" My response was "Wonderful!" She asked what it could go towards. I thought of our partnerships and asked: How about if we challenge members to give an extra mile gift to: +Crossways Camps-just starting a capital campaign. +All Peoples' Church in Milwaukee, which does so much with young people. +Ulong'a Parish in Tanzania, where we can help students attend school! +Our own Good Samaritan Fund, which helps some of the neediest in our care. +Our ELCA Hunger Appeal, which makes a huge difference in the U.S. and the world!

Our generous member said "Great!" So here's the challenge: Can you give an extra $20, $50, $100, $500, or $1000 to match this gift? You can designate it for any of these 5 purposes, if you wish! This is a great way for $5,000 to end up doing even more good than we thought possible!

Thank you for being Church Together in worship, in learning, in service, and in prayer this month!
