They’re back by popular demand! The Youth Group is selling Butter Braids for the upcoming holiday season. A sign-up sheet has been posted on the pillar in the northwest corner of the narthex. You may pay for your order at the time of pick up (Sunday, December 15). Please make checks payable to Zion. Proceeds will be used to defray the costs of the youth attending the WELS 2014 International Youth Rally at the University of Tennessee.
On Thursday, November 28, at 9:00am, we gather to reflect on the Lord’s goodness to us, demonstrated in the many blessings he has graciously showered upon us. Join your brothers and sisters in Christ in giving thanks to the One who has so richly blessed us, spiritually and physically.
Mid-week Advent Suppers
The New Church Year begins in two weeks. Three mid-week Advent services (December 4, December 11, and December 18) are planned. Soup suppers will precede each of these services (provided that people volunteer to bring soup). A sign-up sheet has been posted on the pillar in the northeast corner of the narthex for those willing to prepare soup or dessert. Please consider serving your fellow members in this way. Contact the office for more information.
Rooted, a 20’s and 30’s group from WELS Front Range congregations, has scheduled a gathering on Saturday, November 23. Activities for the day include visiting the Denver Zoo, compiling Christmas care packages, and dinner downtown. Details can be found on Facebook (facebook.com/groups/rooted.wels).
A Home of Our Own
Rocky Mountain Lutheran High School has a signed contract on a 23-acre lot at 104th and Landmark and is praying that we will be able to finalize that purchase this month. Please keep this in your prayers and consider a gift to the high school building fund. You may donate online (www.rmlhs.org) or by sending a gift directly to the high school at 2300 W 90th Avenue, Denver, CO 80260.
Preparing for Next Week
The Church Year ends with the lasting song of triumph for Christ our King. The promise is sure: We will live with him in his kingdom, rejoicing in his goodness and resting in his eternal peace. Prepare for Christ the King Sunday by reading Genesis 49:8-12; Colossians 1:13-20 (sermon lesson); and St. Luke 23:35-43.
