OSL Women of the ELCA
Gather magazine’s current Bible study is a four-part study “in John’s gospel, rather than a comprehensive study of John’s gospel”: Meetings with Jesus by Julie A. Kanarr. Session two: “By Night and Day: Coming to Faith in Jesus.” Theme/focus verse: “Those who drink of the water that I will give them will never be thirsty” (John 4:14a). Prayer: “Gracious God, open our hearts and deepen our faith. Guide us as we seek your presence. Fill us with your lifegiving love and mercy. Sustain us in hope. Amen.”
Board Position Opening. We are searching for a Mission Action Chair. Please let me know if you would be interested in serving on the board: firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to have you as part of our team.
