New Adult Seminar!

Freeing Jesus: Rediscovering Jesus as Friend, Teacher, Savior, Lord, Way, and Presence
Lead by Pastor Ralph Anderson
October 17 – November 21
9:30am, Fireside Room

Who in the world is Jesus? Most of us can answer that question in a variety of ways, some very personal. Some based on what we’ve been told. Some have come from our studies, from what we’ve read. We know the stories, the experiences of others, the history of the Church.

He stands at the very core of the Christian Faith. Over 2000 years of history have helped define him. Even people of other faith traditions say that he is an important religious figure. The Muslims, for example. Many of us feel that if all followed Jesus the world would be a better place.

Diana Butler Bass, a well known theologian, helps us understand Jesus in some fresh new ways in her book, Freeing Jesus, which I recommend purchasing in advance. Out of her own experience she helps us understand and embrace the Jesus of history and faith. 

Come join us for six Sunday mornings of her reflections, beginning on October 17 at 9:30 AM in the Fireside Room: Rediscovering Jesus as Friend, Teacher, Savior, Lord, Way, and Presence.

LFS Refugee & Asylee Volunteer Program

Lutheran Family Services (LFS) Refugee and Asylee Services program is busy preparing to welcome more Afghani families to the Colorado Springs area and will need our help.   At LFS, there are a variety of ways you can volunteer to help refugees. Whether it be compiling welcome baskets or working closely with refugee families themselves, we offer an array of opportunities suited to your specific preferences.

The first step to volunteering with our refugee programs is to review the opportunities available in your area and attend an orientation training session. After you have attended an orientation training, you will need to complete and submit an application and a background check. These forms should not be submitted until after you have attended orientation.

A training session is available this Tuesday, October 5th.  You can learn more and sign up here.

OWL’s COG Railway Update

The summit parking lot is being paved over the next few days, and those who planned to drive to the summit for our OWL’s trip tomorrow, will not be able to go past Devil’s Playground. This DOES NOT affect those who are riding on the railway! The visitor center will remain open for COG railway passengers and hikers. See you tomorrow!

Peel House Update: It’s in the Details – Part 3

Last week we showed the photo below and we had a correct guess! Brass window hardware! Nunn (the contractor) has made it a goal to retain and restore all the old details in the Peel House. When you walk in, you’ll see this old brass hardware, even on the new windows. Gary with Nunn, did this on his free time. We are so lucky to have such a dedicated team working on this project!

For this week… any ideas what this can be? Hint: It’s so GRAND!

Peel House Update: It’s in the Details – Part 2

Last week we showed the photo below. No correct guesses! This is the exposed brick wall in the Youth Center and the beautiful cabinetry next to it. The basement is now warm and inviting!

THIS week’s question… what and where am I?
Hint: most of the windows have these!
Hint: these are original to the Peel House!

Peel House Update – It’s in the Details

Last week we mentioned we’re keeping most of the details under wraps until the big reveal in a few months. However, we’re starting a new series called It’s in the Details. Weekly, we will post a new detail photo from the Peel House and you get to guess what it is! Don’t worry, we’ll give a few hints.

First up… What am I?

Hint 1 – it is in the basement.
