The final Vision Discovery meeting will be Aug. 21 at 4 p.m. It will include dinner and child care. Cookies are needed for the My First School kickoff event. They can be dropped off at the church from Aug. 21-26.
Bread of Life offered
Bread of Life at Lord of Life Lutheran Church is a safe space where worship and fellowship meet around the dinner table.
For all but one Sunday per month, students gather at 5 p.m. and begin worship by preparing a meal together. The offering is the food that is needed to prepare the meal. Liturgy and conversation flow from one another casually. When people are done eating, Holy Communion is celebrated.
Worship is concluded with cleanup and a sending prayer at 7 p.m.
Bread of Life does not gather on the fourth Sunday of each month because students are encouraged to worship with their families on Sunday morning.
"These are things millennials and younger people yearn for in worship. I'm so excited that Lord of Life has embraced this unique worshiping opportunity and provided a safe space for high school students to explore their faith," said Janine Foster, a long-time member of Lord of Life and a seminary graduate.
For more information, visit www.loloh.org or call the church office at 440-543-5505. Lord of Life is at 17989 Chillicothe Road in Bainbridge Township, just south of Route 422.
