Sarah Vatne is the designated person to receive Grace’s December Special Offering. As a Young Adult in Global Mission (YAGM) she is asked to raise $4000 and the ELCA provides the other $9,000. Grace’s support given in her name will assist her with her $4000 with the remainder towards the $9000 to assist all 84 YAGMs placed around the globe. See Sarah’s blog of amazing pictures and story – https://sarahtosa.wordpress.com/
YAGMs are 21-29 years of age, carefully placed and supported by the ELCA, to be about God’s mission in an “accompaniment” style, in a foreign land. Sarah is placed at Empangeni, South Africa working at a “Place of Safety”, which has a boarding school and activity center, which houses and educates children who have been orphaned, abandoned, or abused. As her Zulu language skills improve she will work directly with the kids who live there.

Share with us how these experiences have impacted you and your Faith walk and your relationship with God and others. Tell us your story!

Please return your stories by Friday, September 15th so that we can include some of these during our Fall Stewardship either via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or print off and place in the Stewardship Committee mailbox at church. Contact Shirley Derleth if you have any questions.
Join us for bible study, discussion, and coffee (cookies too), for one hour every Tuesday evening beginning September 13 at 7:00 PM at Grace Lutheran Church in Tomahawk.
Paul’s letter to the Romans is so important to Christianity, particularly Protestant Christianity, that it is sometimes referred to as “the fifth Gospel.” As the 500th anniversary of the Reformation approaches, it is appropriate that we, as Lutherans, spend some serious time studying this epistle.
You will need a bible, a pad of paper, and a pencil. There is no charge for other materials.
