Adult Education First
There is a Bible Study open to one and all every Monday at 10 a.m. in Conference Room A. This Bible Study focuses on scripture readings from the upcoming weekend in worship. Led by lay leaders and clergy, this study is designed to help the participants prepare for weekend worship. Coffee and goodies are served with a full measure of God’s Word and fellowship. You can’t find a better way to start the week!!
Adult Education on Sunday
Adult Education Opportunities continue on Sunday mornings in November. Pastors will take turns leading a Stewardship Bible Study, using the “Giving in Grace” readings from worship:
• November 5 at 10:00 a.m. (for those who attend Traditional Worship)
• November 12 at 8:45 a.m. (for those who attend Contemporary Worship)
We will use Paul’s letter to the Romans, the passage from 2 Corinthians about the generosity of the Macedonian church, and the parables of the Good Samaritan and Prodigal Son from Luke’s Gospel to consider what God’s grace means for us, and how we are called to respond faithfully to this gift of grace. Bring your Bible and join us in Conference Room A.
First Lutheran offers Adult Education opportunities during Wednesday Night Faithtime.

From The Mistletoe Secret
“I came here to find someone—someone I met on the Internet. Actually, that’s not quite true. We’ve never actually met.” I looked up into Aria’s eyes. “This is going to sound really crazy. I mean, it’s the craziest thing I’ve ever done.
“I know crazy," she said.
“This person, this woman, she wrote a blog that really spike to me. She writes about loneliness and love. It was so honest and vulnerable . . . I decided I had to meet her. But she didn’t leave any information on her website except her initials.”
“What are her initials?”
Aria was quiet for a moment. I could see her thinking.
“Do you know anyone with those initials?” I asked.
