The Gospel for this Sunday:

Luke 14:25-33

Refresh My Heart in Christ

Called to contemplate the cost of discipleship today, we might be helped by translating Paul’s request to Philemon into our prayer of the day: Refresh my heart in Christ. Strengthened by the company and forgiveness of the Christ in the blessed sacrament and recalling God’s grace in remembrance of baptism, we can be strengthened in this hour to “choose life”—to choose life in God as our own.

The Time & Talent Survey Coming Your Way


What are your gifts?

As a TEAM MINISTRY church Lake Edge Lutheran Church has a role, small or large, for everyone ministering to one another and to those in our community. Whether we have an occasional hour available or many hours a month, each of us is blessed with gifts to share. We are taking an inventory of our members’ gifts, skills, and interests to help connect you with areas of service fitting your gifts and interests. All LELC members – long-term and newly-arrived, youth through seniors – are invited to fill out the updated Time & Talent form. The survey form will be distributed with the bulletin at the September 8 worship services. Additional forms will be available below the Jumbotron and in the office. The survey as a fillable form will also be made available on the LELC website. Before September 8 please take time to prayerfully reflect on your God-given gifts and how you might share them with the Lake Edge family and community. Our goal is to have Time & Talent forms from all LELC members by the end of September. Thank you. Ron Siggelkow, Ministry Support Liaison
