This week’s Adult Forum – “How Lutherans Interpret the Bible” with Prof. Mark Allen Powell

Adult Forums — Every Sunday @ 9:30

 This week:  “How Lutherans Interpret the Bible”  with Prof. Mark Allen Powell

  This is probably the main distinction that exists among various forms of the Christian church, especially in America. We will spend time becoming more familiar with why we view the  Bible the way we do. This will help us to better apply it’s message to our daily lives. It’s always a lively discussion!

Pupusa meal on Nov 9, 9:00 to 1:00

  • $10 adults $4 children
  • RSVP helpful (476-4700), tickets purchased at door.

Benefits our sister parish program in El Salvador for scholarships, school supplies, housing assistance, and health care supplies for the local clinic

Choir Practice

Greetings!

I know that not everyone receiving this email is in the choir, but I thought I’d send it to all of you anyway.

Connie and I selected some lovely music for the next months up until Christmas Eve.  You can pick up your music and the list of pieces on Sunday morning at 9:30 am.

So if you want to sing with the St. Stephen’s choir, we  practice Sundays, from 9:30 am to about 10:15 am.
I hope to see many of you there.

Peace,
Suzanne Duval
