Bible Verse of the Day

1 Peter 5:8-9
“Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings.”

Affiliation Congregational Meeting Scheduled for Nov 2

At the October 21st Visioning Meeting, the continued discussion about which Lutheran denomination St. John's Gibraltar wants to be affiliated with was continued.  The general feel of those present was that we have been directionless for too long, and need to make decisions about where we are going as a congregation, and a big part of that is which Lutheran denomination we will be a part of.

By a unanimous vote of a quorum of council members present, it was decided to hold an informational Congregational Meeting on November 2 as part of the service, to discuss the similarity and differences between the various Lutheran Church denominations.

This will NOT be a voting meeting to make a decision, but rather an educational meeting so our members can know and understand the differences between the various Lutheran denominations.  Information will be presented on our current body, the ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America), the LCMS (Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod), and the NALC (North American Lutheran Church), of which Rev. Hansen is accredited with.

Information will be mailed to all active members and calls will be made so everyone can learn about this important decision and the choices it presents.
