Saved Through Faith
Martin Luther struggled with the church’s teaching that he earned his forgiveness of sin and justification before God through his works as a monk. Instead, he found a greater and deeper understanding that God’s grace is what justifies us. In celebration of and in response to the gift of grace, we are then called to live lives of love and perform acts of service.
40 Hours of Service
How are your volunteer hours stacking up so far this year? Kudos to those giving of your time in service to others. Look for more service event opportunities organized by the Stewardship Team.
One ongoing service opportunity is working at the Lutheran Pantry at First Lutheran on 31st and Jackson. People are needed especially on Mondays and Tuesdays from about 12:45 to 2:30 p.m. The need is great, as 70 to 100 people have been coming in one and one-half hours on Mondays, for example. (Some of the Lord of Love garden produce has gone to this pantry this summer, too.) If interested, please give Simone Weber a call at First Lutheran, 917-992-8574.

The Memorial Committee is seeking suggestions and ideas for use of Memorial funds.

If you have a great idea for use of Memorial funds, please contact a committee member.
Our 2012 community garden has truly born good fruit and vegetables all summer long. The early spring gave the produce a great start. Harvesting began in early July.
