A Call to Action: Family Ministry
Nov 9 at 12p.m.

Family-centered faith is declining. Today’s parents may not have been raised in a home where faith practices like prayers, Bible reading and talking about God’s Word, His love and grace, and habits of Christian living were lived and taught.  

Meanwhile faith formation has been outsourced to the church through Sunday school, VBS, and Lutheran schools. This is not what God has designed! God has given parents the responsibility of passing on the faith to the next generation. The church must make changes now to move from church-centered, home supported faith formation to home centered, church supported faith formation. Join Pam Nummela DCE, and Rev. Steve Andrews as they discuss Family Ministry in the home.

Building Relationships Despite Disagreements
Jan 18, 2023 at 12p.m.

Race, Sex, Guns, Climate, Politics, Gender, Religion, Ethnicity, Vaccines, Poverty…are we letting cultural issues prevent relationships? Why is the answer often to dissociate from people with whom we disagree? How can church leaders model and foster an approach for bridging relationships, even if we can’t bridge ideologies?

Join with Rev. Dr. Chad Lakies, regional Director for North America at Lutheran Hour Ministries, and Rev. Marty Hasz, Director of Church Worker Support, for a biblical vision for how to engage with others who think and believe differently than we do.
