The Luther Study*

on Nov. 1
*The Luther Study!
 
On October 31, 2017 it will be the 500th Anniversary of the nailing of the 95 Theses to the church doors of a little village in Wittenberg, Germany, by an unknown monk, named Martin Luther. Luther turned out to be the center of a cultural European re-awakening of God’s word, of faith and freedom. The ordinary person in Europe became empowered in their faith and in their work. To this day, Luther is still a controversial person, but the events of his life, and his teachings are impressive. Some people today are choosing to leave Luther in the past! What did Luther help us to see and use for life, for faith, for work and for freedom.

We are offering an all adult study this fall, it meets five times on Wednesdays at 6:30 to 7:20pm. This is in place of our normal Wednesday Women’s and Men’s Bible studies, which will return in November. This is a five week session and we will introduce the weekly study at the Sunday Morning Adult Discussion time and then dig deeper and apply it to our lives on Wednesday evenings. This is not one of those studies that will get bogged down in the history or information, but if the truth sets one free, then let us share it to live free! It will be applying the discoveries of the Reformation to our faith life, to our church, and to our families!

You can come to just the Sunday discussion but we hope you will find the Wednesday session growing deeper a real life empowering time for your life. We will use a brief guide, some video, the Bible, and discussion.

CLW has several fund-raising events throughout the year.  Funds raised are put into a Benevolence Fund and the Women of CLW vote each year as to where these funds are distributed, which can be needs within the church, local missions or international outreach.
 
CLW Fundraisers include:
New and Used Sale – This sale is held in September, and includes new and used clothing, jewelry, household goods, sporting equipment, books, tools and some furniture.
Silent Auction – This event is held in October for three weeks and offers everyone an opportunity to bid on many beautiful and useful donated items.

Christ Lutheran Women
 
“We open our hearts to God by worshiping and hearing his word. We serve Him and worship in work by extending our hospitality to others and sharing His word.” 
 

Our membership is comprised of all the women of Christ Lutheran Church.  We invite every woman to join us and share in the joy we experience when serving God and others!

 
Some of the ministry opportunities we offer……
 

Quilters:  If you are interested in a great fellowship group, this ministry is for you!  A dedicated group of ladies of all ages meets at 8:30 a.m., every Monday morning from September through May.  There have been hundreds of beautiful quilts made which have been donated all over the world and also given to our graduating seniors and as gifts for other special occasions. Coffee, goodies and fellowship are always included!  No sewing skill is required – if you can tie a knot or use a scissors, you’re in!     

Ronald McDonald House Meal:  Each spring we send a group of women (and men) to go to one of our local Ronald McDonald Houses to serve a meal to the families staying there. We raise money to purchase the food through raffles and donations from the congregation. This is a wonderful opportunity to serve out in the community.
Funeral Meals:  A great group of women and men come together whenever there is the need for funeral meals in our congregation.  We have people who volunteer to make phone calls, provide bars or cookies, prepare and serve the meal and clean up.  It is a wonderful fellowship opportunity and a ministry that is very much appreciated by the families.
Spring Event: We typically have a Spring Event such as a Dolls Tea, Hats Off Brunch or other fun themed teas that offer a time of fellowship & fun.

Lucia Tea:  This fun potluck dinner “kicks off” the Christmas season!  We exchange small gifts with our prayer partners from the previous year and draw for new partners for the coming year
