Volume 4, Number 9, September 2022
From the Pastor’s Desk …
This is a heads-
There is a WELS group called “Praise and Proclaim Ministries.” It is led by Mr. Dave Malnes. Their specialty is helping members get comfortable in sharing their faith.
This is totally in sync with the same kind of training we have been doing with our “Disciples Speaking Up” series.
Please mark you calendars for October 14-
This will be a double focused program – 1. Training to energize the outreach efforts for the mission field of the new mission with field experience. 2. Training to energize the outreach efforts for the mission field of Beautiful Savior with field experience.
Watch for more details.
September 11 is this year’s “Rally Sunday”. This is the start of our Youth Bible Study and Sunday School. To mark this occasion we will have match box type car races for all ages – WITH PRIZES! Bring your favorite car from home; but don’t worry if you don’t have a car – there will be “loaners” available. The races will take place after worship and before Sunday School and Bible Study.
We are still looking for volunteers for our “ad hoc” committee to develop a comprehensive marketing plan to help us accomplish our ministry plan. If you have expertise or just interest in serving in this way please speak up. Let Pastor know.
On Wednesday, September 21st at 3:00 EVERYONE is invited and encouraged to come to church for a special, important meeting with Pastor Matt Vogt, our District Mission Counselor. Please review what was said about this in the Pastor’s report to the congregation at our last quarterly meeting. Pastor Vogt will lead us on a discussion about our mission outreach possibilities, and the impact that has on our future ministry.
Please plan to be there.
I hope everyone is getting excited as we approach the joyful experience of celebrating the 25th anniversary of Gospel ministry here at Beautiful Savior. Here are some things we need from you:
1. Get your picture taken for our pictorial directory and picture board.
Your family can do that after church on either October 2 or 9.
2. Look for pictures from our history, and give them to Cathy to scan/copy.
3. Think about ordering anniversary shirts.
4. Help with publicity.
On Sunday, September 25th during Bible Study time, we will be linked up with Mr. Mark Arnold, our District Planed Giving Counselor. He will visit with us about “Christian Estate Planning.” Watch for more information at worship on the first 3 Sundays of September.
We are making an effort to expand our church library. If you would like to get a handle on one of the major people of the Bible, try one of the short reads from the series “God’s People”. These are taken from the Bible, but presented in a compelling and exciting narrative.
