17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. 18 All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; 19 that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. 20 Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.

2 Corinthians 5:17-20

How are you doing in your
One Chapter a Day habit?

If you made it through day one, Matthew chapter one, the genealogy of Jesus Christ son of God, congratulations! you are well on your way to making ONE CHAPTER A DAY a habit.  Hopefully by now, you have established a habit. But here are two ideas to help make your daily “habit” a success.

The first key is read the same time every day. Find a time that works for you - when you won't be disrupted or disturbed by others. If you are a morning person, make it the first thing you do in the morning.  If you are an evening person, make it the last thing you do at night just before you go to bed. If you are a family, who happen to eat meals together each day, reading after dinner might be a great time, or just before bedtime is another great way to end the day together.

Luther, in his small catechism, offered a daily pattern for the Christian life

Begin with the words which welcomed us into the Kingdom, “in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.”  (make the sign of cross as desired)
He wrote a wonderful morning and evening prayer,
In the morning when you get up, make the sign of the holy cross and say:
 
In the name of the Father and of the ✠ Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
 
Then, kneeling or standing, repeat the Creed and the Lord’s Prayer. If you choose, you may also say this little prayer:
 
I thank You, my heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ, Your dear Son, that You have kept me this night from all harm and danger; and I pray that You would keep me this day also from sin and every evil, that all my doings and life may please You. For into Your hands I commend myself, my body and soul, and all things. Let Your holy angel be with me, that the evil foe may have no power over me. Amen.
In the evening when you go to bed, make the sign of the holy cross and say:
 
In the name of the Father and of the ✠ Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
 
Then, kneeling or standing, repeat the Creed and the Lord’s Prayer. If you choose, you may also say this little prayer:
 
I thank You, my heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ, Your dear Son, that You have graciously kept me this day; and I pray that You would forgive me all my sins where I have done wrong, and graciously keep me this night. For into Your hands I commend myself, my body and soul, and all things. Let Your holy angel be with me, that the evil foe may have no power over me. Amen.
Then go to sleep at once and in good cheer.
 
The second key is read in the same place every day and keep your Bible at the place where you read.  Keep your daily points to ponder with your Bible.

May the Word of Christ dwell in you richly!

Exciting things to come!!!!
 
Can you believe the holidays are just around the corner?! I love this time of the year and am always so excited when I see how much our church enjoys sharing with less fortunate families. This year there will be multiple ways to share beginning
October 10th!
 
We will be putting shoe boxes together for
OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD! I should have all the supplies to begin handing out the week of October 10th. There will be boxes in the Narthex or you can recycle shoe boxes from home by simply wrapping the top and bottom separately. Start shopping for those items that will fit in a shoe box!  In November we will be putting together Thanksgiving Food Baskets which has always been such a huge success!
 
In
December we will have a Christmas food drive as well as a toy collection! We are also always thankful for socks, gloves, and hat donations. Be on the lookout for the dates when items will be accepted!
