                     “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.”
                                                                              Psalm 46:1

      The above words from Psalm 46 helped serve as the inspiration for Martin Luther as he penned that
great hymn of the Reformation, “A Mighty Fortress is Our God”. Martin Luther’s emphases on Scripture,
Christ, grace, and faith became the foundation for that movement of Church renewal that we call the
Reformation.
      We will celebrate our heritage as Lutheran Christians in worship on Sunday, October 28th as we join
in Holy Communion and celebrate Reformation Sunday. In this day and age when the church seems so
eager to conform to culture in the area of faith and morals, we are reminded of the Reformers who with
boldness stood fast for the truths of Scripture and the Gospel. At points in the coming years, we too may
have to say with Martin Luther, “Here I stand. I can do no other”. May God bless us as we celebrate our
Reformation heritage. Let us give thanks for our identity as Lutheran Christians. May we too with Martin
Luther and the Reformers ever stand fast for the truths of the Gospel.

                                    Yours in Christ, Pastor Sorcek

Dear Faithful Friends,
What is your favorite story? How have you shared that story with others? Where does your faith connect to
storytelling? In the months ahead, our congregation will be undertaking a new initiative entitled Stories to
Tell & Gifts to Share. Together we will be engaging in storytelling about our mission, ministry, and life
together. We believe telling these stories is like sharing a gift from God.

Your family will be invited to join us in telling stories. The purposes of this initiative are to
   ∑ Explore how the Bible invites us to live gratefully and gracefully,
   ∑ Develop ways to share the good news of Jesus Christ with those around us,
   ∑ Learn about the many ways God works in peoples’ lives through our giving,
   ∑ Discover how giving can be both a duty and a delight,
   ∑ Connect with other congregations through a network of storytellers and interpreters called to serve
       Jesus Christ together.
Some stories will be directly connected to our community and others will tell how we are connected to
ministries around the world. We are laying the groundwork for this effort through a series of newsletter and
bulletin articles. In this issue of the Adventure you will find a gold colored Spiritual Gifts Inventory (Time
& Abilities sheet). We encourage you as part of your stewardship response to prayerfully consider your
involvement in congregational life and ministries. Then fill out the form and return it to the box on the
table in the center of the narthex or mail it to the church office. On November 11th we will have
Stewardship Sunday featuring stories and testimonies from members of our own congregation. At that time
and in the weeks previous, we will be challenged to consider our financial response for the gifts that God
has given us. Your gifts of “Time, Talent, and Treasure” make our Lord’s ministry possible here at
Advent.
Yours in Christ, The Stewardship Committee, Co-Chairmen Paul Henke and Doug Oines
