REFORMATION DAY: October 26 – a most timely topic!

“Creation Themes from Martin Luther” is the topic led by Dr. David Lumpp, professor of theology at Concordia University, St. Paul, MN.

This is the 4th annual Reformation lecture Dr. Lumpp has brought to the Adult Bible Class.

Guests are cordially invited to join in learning more about this very timely topic. Sunday, Oct 26, 9:30 a.m. in the lounge of Jehovah Lutheran Church, 1566 Thomas Avenue – the Lutheran Church on the Corner of Snelling and Thomas. Call 651-644-1421 with questions.

Beginning Nov 2 and running through December:

This nine- session study is a careful look at how we are called to serve and use God’s gifts to us in our lives. A look at the question: “What’s the purpose of our life?”

The study is from the Center for Stewardship of Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, MO. The class study and discussions will be led by various members of the Adult Bible Class.

Come and enjoy an always lively conversation about God’s word for us!

Wednesday Fellowship Meals

Each Wednesday from September 10th —November 19th we will have a Fellowship Supper from 5:30—6:30 pm. The first two meals will be prepared by Lynne & Leo Baerthel. There will be a sign-up sheet for other chefs who would like to prepare a meal. We have averaged between 20—40 each week.

These meals are a great place to visit with fellow members, to meet with a friend, and to have a tasty meal before Women’s Bible Study or Choir!

Clothing and Household Items for
Refugee Families Needed

Jehovah Lutheran Church is gathering donations of clothing and household items for Congolese refugees. Most-needed now: bedding for twin size beds; towels of all sizes; kitchen pots & pans. Always needed: good clothing and shoes; money for bus passes; and toiletries.

Jehovah Lutheran, at 1566 Thomas in St. Paul, hosts an office for CEEDS, the Center of Employment and Education Development Services, a group working with Congolese.

 Donors are welcome to leave clothing and other items in good condition in the church entry on Thomas. Tax-writeoff slips are available at the shopping cart nearby. Decades of war have created havoc in the central African nation. Some fleeing the violence are expected in St. Paul, where Congolese immigrants have an established community.

Pastor Justin, director of CEEDS, has just returned from a trip to four refugee camps in East Africa. He writes, “ I met Congolese refugees in these camps who are living in horrible conditions for over 10 years; I prayed with them and encouraged them by the Word of God (scripture), and shared meals with some.. and met officials in these countries that deal with Congolese refugees.”

There are currently three new refugee families from the Congo in the Twin Cities. The larger influx will be later due to an already high number of refugees in the Twin Cities area from other countries. Pr. Justin asks our prayers that those waiting in camps may soon find new homes.

Seven young men were inducted as Eagle Scouts during an Eagle Scout Court of Honor Dec. 28, 2013, at Jehovah Lutheran Church in St. Paul:  Matthew Westpfahl, Jared Bluhm, Jacob Goodale, Connor Heck, Derek Murray, David Kolar, and Kaiden Hanan.

Only seven percent of Boy Scouts achieve Eagle Scout rank. Of these inductees, all active in scouting since age five, six attended Central Lutheran School in St. Paul. All seven received a letter of congratulations from President Obama.

The WHEREhouse
Formerly Known as theAlley-Midway

Officially starting on June 1st, theAlley-Midway became independent from its mother church in Cottage Grove. theAlley-Midway has renamed its church as The WHEREhouse, which is derived from Matthew 18:20; Jesus says “For where two or three gather as my followers, I am there among them.” The name appears to ask the question, “Where?” while all along, Jesus tells us that he is “Here."

Even though The WHEREhouse will offer weekly bible studies and worship services, much of the church's ministry will be directed to meet God's people where they are. To do this, instead of having a worship service, THE WHEREhouse once a month will "be the church" by engaging in outreach activities. In addition, the church aims to create several "Life Groups" (aka. home groups, bible study groups, etc.). To lead these efforts, the church is in the process of placing a call for an ordained LCMS pastor.

During this time of transition, The WHEREhouse will continue to look to God for direction on how it can best serve His people and its surrounding community as well as spread the Good News of His Son Jesus Christ. The WHEREhouse has been gracious of Jehovah's support over the past three years and would continue to ask Jehovah to keep The WHEREhouse in your thoughts and prayers.

Come and sing!

Our mixed-voice choir for singers from seventh grade to adult rehearses from 7-8 p.m. Wednesdays and sings up to four Sundays per month, primarily at the 10:45 a.m. service.

We sing, have fun during rehearsal, support each other in tough times, pray together and throw great parties.
