Blues, Brews, and Real News

Friday, January 24, 7:00 p.m.
Enjoy this monthly community outreach worship again with The Healers as our house band, playing the Blues with authority and authenticity. Different beers will be available again. AND we’ll enjoy a panel discussion on the theme: “A Lively Chat About Death and Dying.” How’s that for a party starter? Actually, we’ll very much enjoy a unique conversation with theological, medical, and legal perspectives about death, its meaning, how best to prepare and live instead of waiting and denying. It all informs an “abundant life” now.  AND…we look forward to B,B,&RN on February 28 when “Free Wheels Houston celebrates its volunteers and adds BBQ burgers to the evening!

Pageant: Christmas Around the World: Dec. 15 at 10 a.m.

We celebrate Christmas (a bit early) with the pageant Christmas Around the World. All children join to sing and play the story of Jesus’ birth. On December 15, all children will meet at 9:30 a.m. in the parish hall to get ready. Bring the whole family and enjoy waffles baked by the Luther League until the doors open at 10 a.m. The youth will make sure to have plenty of waffles for the cast after the show. Dress rehearsal will be on December 14 at 10 a.m.

Paul and Marie Monroe have graciously volunteered to prepare turkey & dressing for a family-style Thanksgiving Day dinner in the parish hall. Any students who aren’t going home, young adults without plans, and all adults without family in town are invited to join them. If you would like, you may bring a covered dish to share (salad, vegetable, bread, dessert, fancy drinks, etc.). For an accurate count, please notify Beverly Davis. However, if you don’t sign up, you are still welcome: everyone will eat their fill and we’ll have baskets of food left over. Thanksgiving dinner will begin around 11:45 a.m. and run until the turkey tryptophan kicks in.
