October Theme “Teamwork”
Corinthians 12:12-13 Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. 13 For we were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body—whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink.
October might be the most exciting sports month of the year. You have MLB Playoffs, College and NFL football are in full swing, and NHL and the NBA start up. Not to mention the fact that college basketball practices and preseason games begin. If you’re a fan of practically any team sport, you’ve got a team you can be rooting for.
The messages in October will focus on teamwork. This month we’ll spend time in God’s Word showing in what ways we are a team. How can we work together as a better team at church, in our families, at work and or at play? God’s Word and the community of Christ’s church can provide us with some helpful guidelines and aids.
In October our church leaders will also be having a visioning and planning meeting. We will host a Fall Festival for our church and community families that will require teamwork as well as provide lots of group and teamwork games and relays.
We are not alone. We have been drafted onto the team, (or body) of Christ. This month will provide us a wonderful opportunities to build fellowship, foster communication, and carry out our mission even more effectively and efficiently. Join the team at Grace Lutheran!
