First Lutheran Church is making the transition to a new hymnal and worship resource! First introduced to congregations back in October 2006, Evangelical Lutheran Worship is the successor to the much beloved Lutheran Book of Worship. Filled with an abundance of songs both new and long-known, this new resource has already made a strong impression on our congregation. Only four days after the worship and music team invited the congregation to join them in donating copies of the new books, we already have 55 of the 100 needed to fill our pews!
The AUTUMN MINI-RETREAT for ALL WOMEN OF CTS AND FLC will be held Thursday, September 30. As we gather around a bonfire, prayer will be the featured theme of the retreat. We will meet from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at Red Haw State Park’s Ranger Shelter. A light supper will be provided. Please bring a lawn chair. Rides from Chariton will be available on request.
If you could ask Presiding Bishop Mark S. Hanson a question about the ELCA, what would it be? Bishop Hanson will be hosting a National Town Hall Forum on Sunday, September 19, at 4 PM. Join our viewing party at First Lutheran in Chariton as we watch as a group and send in our own questions for Bishop Hanson.
