Worship at Gloria Dei Saturdays 5:00pm, Sundays 9:00am and 10:30am

RENEW

Hello Gloria Dei,

At our staff meeting this week we asked ourselves a two-fold question.

“What renews you in your life?” And “What renews you in your faith?”

Our answers were many and varied, and we shared them together in groups of three or four.

One of our themes for this fall at Gloria Dei will be “RENEW”. We won’t get laser-focused on this theme until October, but you will be hearing “RENEW” a lot as we move into this new program year.

There is a lot in life that can suck the energy or motivation out of us. We all need to be renewed. It has been a challenging past couple of years. And no matter what is going on in our world and in our lives, we all need times and seasons of renewal. The same is true for our Christian walk with God.

So, I want to ask you the same two-fold question I asked at our staff meeting.

“What renews you in your life?” And “What renews you in your faith?”

And I’d love to hear from you. As we think and focus on being renewed, I would like to share some of your responses with the congregation during our weekly worship times.

“Those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.” –Isaiah 40:31

How are you renewed in life and in faith? Use the following link and send me your responses… and, with your permission, I will share some of your responses with the rest of the congregation - https://gloriadeisd.breezechms.com/form/renewlifefaith

One more thing: THANK YOU for your great response to the Haiti Assistance Fund. So far we have received $3173 in donations. And together with our matching gift of $2000, the total currently stands at $5,173. Awesome!

We will run this one more week or so, but as you know, we have set up this fund following the recent earthquake in Haiti. We all have opportunity to give either online or in worship. The funds will be given equally to the Lutheran Disaster Response for Haiti, and Mission Haiti, with whom Gloria Dei is aligned in the sponsorship of children. And again, thanks!

This weekend in worship we conclude our preaching series on “Jesus, The Greatest Storyteller Ever.” Please read Luke 14:15-24.

See you in worship and have a blessed Labor Day weekend,

Pastor Tim
