Below you will find some key announcements about SoulThirst happenings:
*Every Sunday after worship the Pastors lead a 45 minute Adult Bible Study. Class begins 15 minutes after worship concludes. Nursery care is available during class.
*The two Vicars in our midst (Jason Hamre & James Cleland) have just completed two years of their specialized pastoral training through Concordia Seminary St. Louis. It’s at this point they are approved for the next level of pastoral ministry, and move from the title of “Vicar” to the title of “Pastor.” On Sunday Jan 27th in our morning worship service (10am as usual) we’ll have a special “Rite of Ordination” ceremony for both men. Then after the service, we’ll have a cake, cookie & punch reception to celebrate the big day!
*On Wednesday March 6th we’ll host a powerful Ash Wednesday worship service (complete with the imposition of ashes on the forehead.) This special service starts at 7pm and lasts 45 minutes.
*Jr High Confirmation Training (for 7th & 8th graders) takes place on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month (11:15am-12:30pm), from September through April. We’ve got 12 students in the class this year, and they’re studying six major foundations of the Christian faith.
*On any month that has a 5th Sunday, our Senior High & Jr High Youth are invited to stay after worship for some games, friendship-building, and fascinating spiritual discussions. Vicar James facilitates this youth gathering, and it takes place from 11:15-12:30 (and includes a pizza lunch.) Their next special gathering will be on Sunday December 30th . With any questions, email Vicar James at firstname.lastname@example.org
