Thanksgiving Eve Worship Service-New Location and New Partner!!!
Our annual Thanksgiving Eve service with other Lutheran congregations is adding a new partner. Trinity Episcopal Church (by TCU on Bellaire Street) desired to join with us and will be hosting this year. The ELCA has been in full communion with the Episcopal Church for more than a decade so it is about time Lutherans and Episcopalians in Fort Worth did something together!
So please plan to join us for worship on Thanksgiving Eve at Trinity Episcopal Church (3401 Bellaire Dr S), on Thursday, November 25 at 7:00pm. Pie and coffee fellowship after worship.
Every Sunday, there are three different adult classes meeting during the Education Hour, from 9:15-10:15am. They meet in (1) Fellowship Hall (led by Pastor Mohn); (2) Conference Room (led by Karen Handley); and (3) Library (following the Augsburg quarterly study guide). There are also classes for young people, of every age—they meet in classrooms on the third floor.
Invitation to a LAFF (Life After Forty Fellowship) Event
LAFF is planning a night out in downtown Fort Worth. We will meet at 7pm for the 7:30 performance of Four Day Weekend, Saturday, November 14. Participants MUST purchase their tickets online from fourdayweekend.com Shows sell-out, so hurry! Once we know who is going, we may decide to meet earlier for a bite to eat and/or go for a nightcap after the show. LAFF is for "40ish" folks, mostly parents of teens/recent empty-nesters. For more info contact Patricia Mansfield: Skeezix416@att.net
Fri/Nov 6 – 7:30pm Support Makenzie Honeywell and Grace Steagall and the Boswell Pure Gold dance team on Senior Night. Leave Trinity at 6:30pm
Regular Games and Cookies at Presbyterian Night Shelter – Every Second Tuesday
Our next regularly scheduled game night is Tuesday, November 10. We meet at Trinity at 6:30 p.m., car pool over and return to Trinity by 8:30. We also need store-bought cookies each month.
Tithe on Turkey Day
Tithing is a spiritual discipline based on the biblical concepts of first fruits giving (Duet 26, Proverbs 3:9). At Trinity we encourage our fellow disciples to prayerfully consider adopt the principle of percentage giving (giving a set % of income, not dollar amount) working toward a tithe (10%). Getting to that tithe takes practice and the month of our national day of Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to practice.
This Thanksgiving we are encouraging Trinity members to consider tithing the cost of their Thanksgiving meal to Lutheran World Relief. In 2014 Americans spent an estimated $312/household on the Thanksgiving weekend. A tithe on that is just $31/household. Yet if we all contributed this to Lutheran World Relief, it could make a huge impact. Please prayerfully consider joining us in this simple act of solidarity with the body of Christ.
