Rally Day, Sunday September 9 Events and Programs

Our yearlong theme – “Rooted in Faith”

“Continue to live your lives in Christ, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught.” ~ Colossians 2:6-7
We return to our regular worship schedule with liturgies at 8:30 and 11:00 a.m., and education hour at 9:40 for ages 3 thru adult. Our Sanctuary Choir will help lead our liturgies.

Fellowship.
To kick off our program year, adults will gather in Franklin Nelson Hall during our Forum Hour at 9:40 a.m. for a time of fellowship and hands-on activities, as we celebrate “God’s Work, Our Hands” Sunday with congregations across the country, reminded of who we are as part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.

Family Picnic.
Join us on Rally Day as we gather for a potluck picnic after the 11:00 a.m. service in the area behind the church. Bring your favorite dishes to share with the Family of Faith. We will provide lemonade and iced tea, but feel free to bring anything else you and yours would like to drink. We will have ice buckets on hand, but you might want to bring your own cooler. Leftovers go home with you at the end of the day. Children of all ages are welcome! We will have games and activities to keep everyone busy. Always a good time to invite friends, neighbors and family for this time of fellowship and to reconnect with one another.

Sunday School

Join us this year for a new Sunday Church School Program – Whirl All Kids Sunday School! Our new curriculum gives children the opportunity to create a community between our youngest children between the ages of 3 and 4, as well as our older students through 5th grade. Bible themes and stories are introduced in an interactive learning environment through music, art, role play and discussion, and are intended to extend beyond the church classroom to home and daily life. Each Sunday, during our Christian Education hour (9:40-10:40), students will gather together as a group in one classroom for a Welcome which will include offering, prayer, music and an interactive video sharing that day’s lesson. We will then divide into two classrooms (3-year olds – 2nd Grade and 3rd – 5th Grade) and continue to discuss the lesson with age appropriate activities. Along with our weekly lesson, the children will work on a six-to-eight-week art project supporting the theme of those lessons. At the completion of the art project, parents will be invited to join us during the Christian Education hour to learn more about their project. During the year, children will continue to learn Sunday School fundamentals which will prepare them for their First Holy Communion and Confirmation. The curriculum includes elements such as the Lord’s Prayer, the Ten Commandments, the Apostles’ Creed and the Nicene Creed, as well the books of the Bible and its many characters.
