College Bound
College Bound, preparation for college from a Christian perspective, will take place on 7 August 2016 during the Sunday School hour at MLC in the youth room.  The presentation will be led by Pr. Pacey. The goal of this presentation is to help prepare students spiritually and intellectually for the transition from High School to College/University. This meeting is mainly for incoming High School Seniors, incoming College students (2yr, 4yr, does not matter), and their parents. Please contact Pr. Ian Pacey or Mr. Robert Burmeister for more information.
From the Vicar
You Have Christ  
In our world, there are many things that can make us anxious. So many, in fact, that when someone tells us not to be anxious, we dismiss the idea. Jesus himself tells his disciples not to be anxious because God will provide them all the things that they need, for both this life and the next. He provides all the earthly gifts that we have, and He also provides another gift for us: His Son, our Savior, Jesus Christ. So, do not be anxious, for you have Christ, and with Christ comes forgiveness and eternal life.
Sunday's Scripture Readings & Hymns
Genesis 15:1-6                                       
If you have small children (and even if you don't), you can learn the hymns we will be singing in preparation for Sunday. My daughter, Hilary, noticed small children singing hymns from memory in the church she attends in St. Louis and concluded that families were teaching the hymns to them so they could sing them, although they could not read. "Blessed are those who dwell in your house, ever singing your praise" (Ps 84:4)! 

Hymns: LSB 534, 666, 798, 733
