Over nearly the last three weeks, I have been deliberating between two completely separate Divine Calls I received, to serve as Pastor at Christ Lutheran Church & Classical School in Port St. Lucie, FL, and to serve as Pastor at St. Timothy Lutheran Church in Lombard, IL. Below is my letter I read yesterday at Faith and sent to each of the other congregations on my decision.Call-Decision-St.-Timothy-Lombard-Christ-Port.-St.-Lucie
Beers & Bibles. Wisdom & Virtue. There are not enough good men…become one. Join Pastor Hendrix at Bodihow Brewery here in Oregon every other Thursday at 6:30pm beginning February 8 for this study on Wisdom and Virtue (from the Latin word for “Man”, vir) from the Book of Proverbs, written by a man God granted with incredible wisdom, King Solomon, but who ultimately let his own wisdom climb too high above other things.
Real women. Real lives. Real stories of God’s faithfulness.
This 6-session Book study for women, led by Carla, will be held at the new Oregon Library every other Thursday at 6:30pm, beginning February 1.
About the book:
“From alcoholism to postpartum depression to cancer, twelve different women share the story of God’s faithfulness in their lives for the consolation of their sisters in Christ. Each session begins with a scripture reading followed by a narrative of an individual woman’s real-life story. Eight study questions, designed for both personal and group study, help the reader apply the reading and narrative to her own life in Christ. A meditative hymn stanza and collect complete each session.”
Come learn about us on Sunday, February 4 at 4pm!
We’re opening a new school in Oregon, WI! Our goal is to create an education to “lift up hearts” (sursum corda in Latin). We are looking for families to be a part of the first core group and cohort for the school, as well as patrons who want to provide more opportunities for Christian education for youth.
Hear from our Headmaster, Pastor Jeff Hendrix, who will share the philosophy behind classical education, what it means for students to be free to discover what is true, good, and beautiful, and what motivates us to involve parents in their children’s education. Some general information on the school will be shared as well.
A classically-centered program for children in K-3 will be offered during the presentation. A free meal (sloppy joes and mac & cheese) will be provided!
Interested in the school for your kids? Come and meet some other families.
