REGULAR VOTERS’ MEETING is set for two weeks from today, Sunday, September 30, at 7:00 p.m. in the auditorium.

OUR NEXT “FIFTH SUNDAY BRUNCH” is set for two weeks from today, Sunday, September 30, starting around 9:45 a.m. in the auditorium.  Classes will be in recess that morning, but we’re hoping all members—from both services—will come and spend time together, even with folks from the “other service” you don’t often visit with.

REGISTRATION FOR THE EAGLE RUN & BBQ has been extended until tomorrow morning (Monday)!  Please call the Academy office early on Monday at 519-250-7888 to register.

PORTALS OF PRAYER, the daily prayer and devotional guide, is yours for the taking at the back of the church and in the hallway leading to the offices.  The latest issue covers the period from October-December.

THE CANADIAN LUTHERAN, the national magazine of Lutheran Church—Canada, is yours for the taking on a chair in the vestibule on the way out of church today … in case you didn’t already get a copy last week.  There’s a very thought-provoking article on Pages 6-8 entitled, “Lutherans and the Benedict Option,” for these times when the Christian faith is being discarded by large segments of our society.

THE INTERNATIONAL LIFE CHAIN, sponsored by Windsor-Essex Right to Life will take place on Sunday, September 30th on the sidewalk along Tecumseh Rd. East in front of Windsor Regional Hospital, Met Campus.  The Life Chain will be held between 2:30 and 3:30 p.m., and involves holding signs to show your public witness against abortion.  If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to call their office at 519-969-7555.
