Fall Start-up this Sunday
Fall Start-Up is when we return to the fullness of our Sunday-morning learning and worship life. Sunday worship is at 7:45, 9, and 11:15 a.m., with Saturday worship at 5:30 p.m. Learning classes begin for ages 3-adult, 10:20-11:05 a.m.
Contexts and intelligences shape 2019-2020 adult learning
Growing in faith happens in the life of a congregation. Singing, service, chat, baking, prayer, visiting, reading, worship, and more – so many things contribute. Adult learning brings new horizons into focus as well.
Lunch in the library
Madison Elementary School is looking for a few good lunch buddies for kids who could use a mentor and friend. Do you have an hour a few times a month?
Wednesdays at St. Paul
Wednesday evenings at St. Paul are filled with singing and learning. Choirs for ages 4-adults and confirmation for kids in grades 7-8 are a joy-filled experience of togetherness each week.

A city slicker’s guide to “heart-iculture” – What faith is and how we grow in it: “By grace we are saved through faith,” says the New Testament letter to the Ephesians (2:8). So what is this faith, by which grace saves us? And once we are saved, what becomes of faith then? Come explore the Bible’s view of faith and its meaning for a life of faith today. Pastor Peter A. Pettit. In the Chapel.
Parenting in the pews – Tools for finding joy and forming faith with kids at worship: Worshiping with your children is one of the most important ways that you can pass on the faith, but it’s not always easy. We’ll share some tips and ideas, along with some reasons why it’s worth it and encouragement along the way. Pastor Sara Olson-Smith and Keri Bass, parent. In Luther Loft.
For God so loved the world, and other 3:16s: John 3:16 is one of the most familiar verses in the Christian Bible. Interestingly, 49 of the 66 books in the Protestant Bible have at least 16 verses in chapter 3, giving us a 3:16 in 49 places. Each week, explore the contexts, meaning, and significance of these other 3:16 verses for our life, our faith, and our world. Judges 3:16. Pastor Katy Warren. In Room 208.
