Great Job!

Chosen One’s would like to thank the Light of the World family for your generosity and support for the Foster/Adopt Community. We collected 45 first night bags, several volunteers and cash donations while engaging several families about how they could get further involved in supporting foster/adopt families.
 

Hurricane Relief:

Many people are wanting to know how to help with relief efforts for Harvey and Irma victims. The community board by the restrooms highlights a few organizations to consider. They are lcms.org, txlcms.org,  samaritanspurse.org, and mercychefs.com as well as many other opportunities out there. For those wanting to go help serve, as a congregation we will be organizing a trip to the Houston area to volunteer later in the fall once relief organizations are fully mobilized and it can be scheduled in an intentional way. We will keep you posted.

 

Hurricane Harvey Volunteers:

The LCMS Texas District is in the process of evaluating the current and on-going needs of our neighbors to the south that have been affected by the hurricane. Our congregation has signed up to provide volunteers once projects have been organized and more information has become available from the district. Please watch for more details in the coming weeks. There is currently an over abundance of donations such as water, food and household items from the initial response to the hurricane. If you wish to provide assistance at this time please check out the bulletin board in the foyer next to the restrooms which lists several options for monetary donations.
 

Wednesday Night Dinner:

If you find yourself rushing through a drive through line before church on Wednesdays, we have a new program just for you! On Wednesday nights, we will have meals available for pick up in the foyer! You can choose between a Chick Fil A sandwich or nuggets, chips, and a drink. Meals can be purchased each Sunday for $5 for the following Wednesday. You can pay with cash, check, or credit card at the Information Desk. For questions, contact Tricia at triciah@lotwchurch.org.

New Adult Bible Study:

Have you ever thought about or studied Jesus’ radical claims about who He was and why He explained who He is the way He did? The Gospel records many instances of Jesus’ “I am…” statements.
