 Backpack Blessing for Kids

            It’s back-to-school time! On Sunday morning, September 13th there will be a special blessing of all school-aged children and their parents as part of our regular 10:30 am worship service.

Children are invited to bring along their school backpack for a special Backpack Blessing Event. During the service, children and parents will receive a special mo­ment of prayer and blessing.

Let’s send our congregation’s kids into the new school year assured of God’s promises and our loving support! Be sure to join us and to include all of our young people in your prayers as they go back to school.

 

God's Work, Our Hands: Rally Sunday, September 13th

            Join us for a fun day as we kick of the school year with the theme “God’s Work, Our Hands.”  If you have a MapleLeafLutheranChurch t-shirt, this would be a great day to wear it!  Join us for all or part of the day:

  • 10:30 = Our worship service promises to be full of joy and praise as we kick of the school year with the “Blessing of the Backpacks.” 
  • 11:45 = Free Pizza Lunch & Service Project.  Let’s use OUR HANDS to do GOD’S WORK.  During lunch we will assemble 100 sack lunches for our very own SHARE shelter residents.  With these lunches they will be able to leave our church each morning for a week with a full sack lunch in hand.  To do this we need YOUR hands to make sandwiches, fill bags, and write notes of encouragement.

 

New Sunday morning Education series for Adults: Starting in SEPTEMBER

Join Pastor Julie for a new eight week series using the curriculum “Making Sense of the Christian Faith.”  This is an exciting and inviting exploration of the major theological doctrines of the Christian faith in the order of the biblical story. This series includes brief video clips from theologian David Lose and stimulates your own thinking instead of attempting to persuade a particular point of view. We will meet Sunday morning from 9:00 am to 10:00 am above the church office area, in the third floor library.

Invest some time in your ongoing Christian Education and plan on attending weekly.

 

September 20 = God-Talk (Theology)

September 27 = Original Blessing (Creation)

 

October 4 = Missing the Mark (Sin)

October 11 = East of Eden (Covenant, Law & Community)

October 18 = God con Carne (Incarnation)

October 25 = Life Wins (Atonement)

Garden and Orchard tour PDF Print E-mail
Written by Julie Blum   

 Beautiful weather was the setting for the second annual tour of MCGO (MeadowbrookCommunityGarden and Orchard).  Maps were handed out and Maple Leaf Lutheran church members were able to learn about the church's evolution of outreach at the Meadowbrook site.  Most were surprised to know that the Meadowbrook Orchard portion of the site was once a golf course!  Special thanks to member Kim S. for tour presentation of the community garden and its important impact on hunger in North Seattle.

 First week in June and it's time to harvest. Two garden spots along NE 100th at the church gets good sunlight.  Produce is donated to the nightly shelter hosted at Maple Leaf Lutheran Church or its taken to the Lake City Food Bank. This time around the Food Bank gets a load of lettuce. Fresh fruits and vegetables are a scarce commodity so the more focus on growing for those in need, the better. Come grow with us!
