“Embracing Stewardship” @ Zion Lutheran Church
Oct 14 @ 8:30 am – 3:00 pm

Presenters, Charles R. (Chick) Lane and Grace Duddy Pomroy, together have authored “Embracing Stewardship: How to Put Stewardship at the HEART of Your Congregation’s LIFE.” Chick and Grace will ground the stewardship conversation in scripture, explore important generational differences, and then provide practical steps you can take to help every member of your congregation become a more faithful steward of all God’s gifts.

Mindful of generational perspectives and attuned to the world in which congregations live, this presentation will provide pathways your congregation can follow to deepen your members’ understanding of themselves as stewards of the bounty of God.

You are encouraged to bring a team from your congregation for a day that will provide tools to strengthen your congregation’s stewardship ministry.

Look for a registration link in the near future.

“A People for God’s Name” Believing and Belonging in Luke-Acts @ Christ Lutheran Church
Apr 21 @ 8:30 am – 3:00 pm
You are invited to join the Western ND Synod GIFTS Committee and Rev. Dr. Eric Barreto for a day exploring diversity through the books of Luke and Acts.
Survey after survey demonstrates that ethnic diversity is only increasing in recent days and yet many of our churches remain culturally homogeneous. What might a church that invites diversity look like? We will turn to the Gospel of Luke and the Acts of the Apostles to wonder together how God’s gift of diversity might take root in our lives together. Too ofter, our tendency has been to imagine that our faith “solves” the “problems” of diversity by making us all one, the same. In contrast, the author of Luke-Acts views our differences as a gift to be treasured not a difficulty to be overcome.
