RUB-A-DUB-DUB THERE ARE PRAYERS IN THE TUB
Do you want another way to “have a conversation with God” (Eugene Peterson) along with the “wordless sighs and aching groans that God’s Spirit makes into prayers?”
(Romans 8:26 The Message). Martin Luther in Table Talk said, “no one can believe how powerful prayer is, and what it is able to effect, except those who have learned by experience.”
Several The Lutheran Prayerbooks have been acquired through a Thrivent Action Team grant and are available in the tote outside the entrance to CTK.
Be sure to pick up your copy today!
We are still in the need of donations and servers!!!
We’ll be supplying and serving dinner on Tuesday, February 9th. We ask volunteers to arrive around 4:30pm and stay until 6:30pm.
