Community Service & Bible Study Programs begin at St. John's Lutheran
Lives are busy, that is for certain. But when do you set aside time for meaningful activity that can make a difference in lives? St. John's Lutheran Church offers community members an opportunity to add meaning for their own sake and for the sake of others with two upcoming events that are open and free.
In order to serve others, St. John's will be packing 10,000 meals to share with hungry people around the world. The Kid's Coalition Against Hunger event will be held on Wednesday, September 27. Up to eighty-five volunteers will be working together to accomplish this mission. It is a multi-generational event, with room for children from grade one through adults. The cost for supplies is $2,800 so financial gifts are also welcome.
On Thursday, September 28, a Community Bible Study will also kick off, looking to the prophet Isaiah and the vision of promise that he offers those who seek God, especially in trying times. Isaiah shared God's message with people in the midst of struggle, loss, wandering and exile. Through his ancient messages, people today can continue to find God who desires only hope and life for people who put their lives in God's hands. The study will last five Thursdays and two sessions are being offered at 10:30 a.m. and 6:45 p.m.
If you would like to participate in either of these offerings, please contact St. John's Lutheran Church to register, by phone at 517-223-9108 or at our website, www.stjohnsfowlerville.org.
