CAPITAL CIRCUIT SEMINAR

Who am I?  Who are we?  These are two of the questions that will be answered at the very first Capitol Circuit Seminar as we explore the topic “Preparing to Proclaim Christ”. RLC’s very own Pastor Nathan Strutz will present this topic at Lord of Love Lutheran Church in DeForest on Sunday, September 29 from 2-4pm.  Join your brothers and sisters around the circuit as we grow together and equip one another for living a Christian life.  For more details, contact Pastor Ewings at pastorewings@rlcmonroe.org or   (608)-535-6531

WELCOME HOME SUNDAY

Clear your calendars!  The weekend October 20th is Welcome Home Weekend.  We are aiming to have 100% attendance among our membership that weekend.  Encourage your friends who have not been in worship recently to come home to their RLC family.  Join us in Bible study as we prepare and equip one another for that day.  Help each other to look forward to the final “welcome home” of our Savior, who will welcome us to heaven.  Service times will follow the regular schedule that weekend.  See you there!

ADVENT BY CANDLELIGHT - PLANNING

It’s time to start thinking about planning for Advent by Candlelight, an uplifting and evangelical event for women of the church to prepare their hearts for Christmas.   We’re looking for volunteers to join the committee to organize the event.  What is involved: meeting 4 to 5 times for organization and crafting decorations.  There are several opportunities to use your talent, including taking care of food and drinks, decorating, preparing program content, hymn selection, and music.  The preparations are as much a time of fellowship as they are for preparing for the event.   Please contact Julie Krause at jkkrause65@gmail.com or call/text 608-225-0372 if you would like to participate on the committee.  The first meeting will be held September 11 at 6:30pm in Verona.

UPCOMING THURSDAY NIGHT BIBLE STUDY SERIES:  REVELATION

Have you ever been reading your Bible, finished the book of Jude, and then...stopped?  If so, you’re not the first - the last book of the Bible can be an intimidating one!  Revelation is full of strange images, lots of numbers, and some pretty fancy language that can make it feel inaccessible to the casual reader. 

If staring down the only book in the Bible labeled “apocalyptic” fills you with fear and trembling, tremble no more!  Coming soon to a Thursday night Bible study near you, Vicar Seth Krueger presents Apocalypse Now:  Reading Revelation Today!

In this class, you will receive the tools you need to decode real-life meaning from the sometimes complex imagery of Revelation, and also put those tools to the test by examining some significant parts of the book with each other.  Whether it’s understanding the significance of its numbers or the history of its imagery, you can build a strong foundation to help you read this powerful book on your own with confidence.

Classes begin September 26th in Verona and run weekly on Thursday nights at 7:30pm after worship.  More information coming soon!

We have many different denominations of Kwik Trip cards on hand for all your travel needs.  Plus, if you make a purchase inside a Kwik Trip store, we get an additional 10% back for our youth group.  The money is used to send teens to the youth rally.  The youth group has also used profits to purchase food for the Verona Area Needs Network food pantry.   Please see Denise  Reimer (608) 225-0902 or Katrina Meinel (920) 382-6696 for Kwik Trip cards.

HELP FOR THOSE IN NEED

It has come to our attention that a few of our families at the Monroe site are in need of assistance. If you are able, we will be accepting food donations (primarily non-perishable items) to help them out. This will be an ongoing giving opportunity. If you have any questions, please contact Pastor Ewings at pastorewings@rlcmonroe.org or 608-535-6531.
