Discipleship Series 2014: September 14 – October 19

            Join us at Sunday worship for a new six week sermon series as we look at what it means to be a follower of Jesus and a committed part of the Body of Christ.  In other words, what are the behaviors, disciplines, signposts, tools, activities, paths or practices that demonstrate, in our word and in our deeds, our intention to live out a lifelong journey with God.  Throughout this series we will also talk about the benefits of committing to being an active and engaged participant of Maple Leaf LutheranChurch.  At the end of the series you’ll have an opportunity to commit to authentically living out your faith

 

Blessing of Animals

Join us on Sunday, October 5th at 10:30 a.m. as we celebrate and bless the pets and animals in our life.  Pets are so important to us and we want to knowledge and celebrate them.  Bring your pet on a lease, in a travel carrier or other appropriate method, considering it will be indoors around other animals. The blessing will happen at the very end of worship outside under the awning so you may choose, if it’s more convenient for you, to keep your pet in your car (weather permitting) for the worship service.   If you are not able to bring your pet you can bring a photograph of them instead.  All, both animals and people, are welcome!

Baby/Toddler Playgroup

    Did you know that Maple Leaf Lutheran Church has a group just for babies, toddlers and their parents?  It’s true!  Join us the second and fourth Sunday or each month from 9:30 to 10:15 in the church nursery for an informal time of play, conversation and relationship building. We will also be visiting a Pumpkin Patch together on Saturday, October 4th.  

Prayers for Healing

            On October 12, immediately following the worship service, we will have a time for prayers for healing.  Those of you that would like to participate are invited to come forward to the altar railing as others are exiting the sanctuary. Those who come to the altar will receive individual anointing and prayer.  We receive the mark of the cross in oil as a sign of God’s healing presence.  If you have a specific request for healing for yourselves, for your families, our congregation, our communities and our world please let the pastor know otherwise you will receive a general prayer. 

Reformation Sunday: October 26th

            Join us on Sunday, October 26th for our 10:30 am worship service as we celebrate and remember the Reformation.  Reformation Day falls on October 31st every year but we celebrate it on a Sunday.  On this day we remember that in 1517, Martin Luther nailed the 95 Theses to the doors of a church in Wittenberg, Germany protesting things he disagreed with in the church. It is our prayer that our hearts and church will continue to be reformed.  The liturgical color of the day is red, which represents the Holy Spirit. Remember to wear your RED.
