Gather Renewal Sunday, September 10, and begin a New year of mission & ministry together!
Backpack blessings and “shine your light” buttons for school-age children, during worship at 8:30 & 11. Special recognition will be given to kindergarteners, and all who have changed jobs or retired over the past year. Between worship services participate in a Scavenger Hunt. Here are some of the activities planned for our morning:
- Engage with high school youth at three stations where they will share their summer experiences together at The Naming Project, the Augsburg College Youth Theology Institute, and Pilgrimage 2017 in El Salvador.
- Sit at the Peace Table and use a real rose to have a peaceful conversation.
- Write ECLC’s banner message with sidewalk chalk, “Love Your Neighbor (No exceptions).”
- Introduce yourself to the new interim pastor, Galen Hora. Ask him about his last name.
- Advocate for strong mental health policies & support our walking team for the National Alliance on Mental Illness walk with ECLC’s Mission Team.
- Write postcards to Congress on DACA and sign up for a book group with ECLC’s Immigration Task Force.
- Eat one of Svea’s homemade cupcakes at the Cake for Breakfast tower. If you’re between the ages of 1 and 101 and celebrated a summer birthday or baptism birthday, take home a gift.
- Pick up your copy of the Kids, Youth & Family Guide. See who your teachers are, what your schedule looks like, and when your Faith Milestone event happens.
- If you’re new to Sunday School say “hi” to Carla and Sandy in the 3 year old classroom. Find your classroom.
- Visit ECLC’s peace pole on the front lawn.
