They say "the third time is a charm". After 2 failed attempts at going on the River Lilly Cruise due to bad weather, we were finally able to get out today - and what a beautiful day it was! Members of Living Faith Church along with friends and family were treated to a guided tour of the North Fork of the St. Lucie Ricer. We learned a lot about the river and also were treated to a variety of wildlife including an estimated 14 foot American alligator!

A big thank you to George Scheuerlein for organizing this trip!

Glad the weather cooperated. It's a fun and interesting tour...we have taken our visitors there several times.

Was a perfect trip, glad we waited, was fun to be together and enjoy God's beauty

That looks so fun!

Looks like great fun!

The foundation of Christian living is faith in Christ. Faith is the central loyalty that gives purpose and direction to our lives. Christian faith is grounding our lives in the living God as revealed especially in Jesus the Christ.

This faith does not happen overnight. It’s a journey. From birth to death we’re growing in faith. There are ups and downs — and sometimes long flat stretches where we seem to be stalled in our journey. But little by little, most of us deepen our relationship with God.

So if your faith journey has been sidetracked by all the distractions in this world, Living Faith Church invites you to join us as we gather together on Sundays, as one body in Christ, to our weekly worship service.

Worship is not so much about what we do but instead it is about what God is doing in our midst and our response to God’s action. Worship is an encounter with God who saves us through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is the place where we are reminded that we are beloved children of God. It is in worship that we come together and through the Holy Spirit we hear again that our gracious and merciful God, through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ forgives our sins, saves us from death and gives us new and eternal life which begins right now.

Come and worship with us and be renewed through the life giving promise that Christ alone gives to all. We worship on Sundays, 10:00 AM at Creative Catering Banquet Hall.

Ways You Can Serve Joyfully!

12 There is one body, but it has many parts. But all its many parts make up one body. It is the same with Christ. 13 We were all baptized by one Holy Spirit. And so we are formed into one body.
24 So the body is not made up of just one part. It has many parts.
27 You are the body of Christ. Each one of you is a part of it.
Corinthians 12:12-13; 24; 27

These words from St. Paul to the churches in Corinth remind us today that each one of us is a part of the body of Christ. Each one of us has a unique talent and function just like the hand and the eye differ yet are integral parts of the whole body. At Living Faith we understand that we are all called to serve in various and unique ways, based on our talents and giftedness. Your participation in this Living Faith community is vital and here are some ways you can Serve Joyfully!

Worship Service Opportunities

Setup and Takedown: Since we are a congregation that utilizes rental space, there is a need to “setup” and “takedown” those physical things that are needed each week for worship. If you are interested in serving in this unique ministry, please contact Carl Kehlenbach.

Musicians: Music ministry is a dynamic element to our time of worship together and our musicians serve by leading the congregation in song each week. If you are interested in serving through singing or playing an instrument please contact Alice Ladomirak.

Greeters: Hospitality ministry begins with our greeters who welcome those who are entering this holy space for worship. Many of those who come to worship have never been in a church before, so a warm genuine welcome and sharing how we are thankful for that person’s presence with us shows forth the light of Christ. Please contact Denise Walker if you are interested in serving as a greeter and she will schedule a training session for you and include you on the schedule.

Ushers: Hospitality ministry continues with our ushers who also serve as greeters, ensuring that each person has an announcement bulletin as well as a comfortable seat (especially when it is crowded). Our ushers also assist with the collection of the congregational offering and provide direction for the congregation at the time of communion. Our ushers also provide guidance in the event of an emergency. Please contact Larry Walker if you are interested in serving as an usher and he will train you and include you on the schedule.

Refreshments: Hospitality ministry includes the refreshments that are served before and after our worship service. There is a sign-up sheet at the Welcome Table where you will be able to select a Sunday to bring in treats for worship. For further information, please contact Pat Walker.

Communion Assistants: Assisting in the distribution of communion - the body and blood of Jesus Christ, the promise of forgiveness and reconciliation - is a powerful way to serve our Lord at worship. Please contact Liz Travers if you are interested in serving as a communion assistant and she will schedule a training session for you and include you on the schedule.

Readers: Assisting in the various speaking parts of the worship service is another way in which you can serve. This may include reading of Scripture and reading of prayers. Please contact Pastor Maryanne if you are interested in assisting during the worship service in this capacity.

Sunday School Teachers/Aides: The Kids4Christ Sunday School Ministry is in need of teachers and aides. Telling our children about God is the most important teaching you can do for a child. Please contact Sharon Corcoran if you have an interest in serving in this very important ministry that will impact a child for his/her entire life!

All Saints Sunday
On this day we remember those who have gone before us and now stand fully in the presence of our Almighty God and Savior Jesus Christ. We open our worship service this morning in prayer giving thanks for the lives of those in our congregation we have lost over this past year: Albert (Al) Earl Maass. At that time you will be invited to come forward to place a rock around the baptismal font and speak out loud the name(s) of those who have passed from this kingdom to the next and for whom you give thanks to God for the ways in which they have touched your life. In addition, we pray for those who have been baptized this past year and join us in our walk as God’s children, growing in our faith and trust in Jesus Christ: Monroe Silveria McFarlane, McKenzie Silveria McFarlane, Madison Sky Hall, Jacob Alexander Rooney, Alivia Marie Rooney, Conner EJ Rooney, and Kailee Morgan Burkleo. And we also remember that while we are yet sinners in this world, we too are saints in the death and resurrection of Jesus the Christ and that one day, we too will come into the full presence of our LORD.

Stewardship
Stewardship is a word that elicits strong emotion - it can either terrorize or delight. I have found that how we react depends on our understanding of the word stewardship. If you ask 2 different people what the word means, you will get 2 different answers. Yet for some reason we are not frightened by the word steward. In fact it is used by many employers as job titles such as - Wine Steward, Property Steward, Cabin Steward, Shop Steward and even Database Steward. And when we think about these different types of stewards, we identify them as people who care for something that does not belong to them. We might also think of them as managers or caretakers. The Property Steward is the person who cares for the land/property that is “owned” by someone else. So stewardship is defined as the office and obligations of the steward. This is very simple when we think of it in terms of our work environments. But when we think of this in terms of our life - as children of the risen Christ - that can be overwhelming.

I will admit that in the past when I heard the word stewardship, I would just shut down. I would put up a defense shield that could not be penetrated. I just associated stewardship with money. And that was because I had a superficial understanding of stewardship. But then as I grew in my understanding of stewardship and more importantly of my freedom found in Christ, I have found that stewardship is something I get to do. When we believe and trust in the promise of God’s grace and mercy poured out upon us through the death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit begins to open our hearts and minds in a new way. Stewardship quite simply is everything I do with all that I have after I say “I believe - I trust”. And when I say everything, I mean even my very life. I began to see that I was a steward of the gift - everything - that God gives to me. I am a steward of all that God has created. I am a steward of time, talent and possessions that have been given to me. I am a steward of the gospel message. I am a steward of God’s love in Christ Jesus. And I am called to share these gifs with others.

As God’s grace was poured out upon us at our baptism in the water with God’s promise of grace, mercy and forgiveness given through Jesus Christ, we became part of God’s family. And as children of God, disciples of Christ, we affirm a new way of being. Living in this world with its many demands can cause us to forget about these affirmations. For 2018, this Living Faith community - all of us together - are called to reflect, pray and affirm 3 specific practices that will strengthen our trust in the Lord:
Give Generously, Worship Regularly and Serve Joyfully.

You have been given a 2018 Stewardship Affirmation Card. Over the next week take intentional time to pray, reflect and affirm the ways in which you will strengthen your walk with Christ and your stewardship of the gifts of time, talent and possessions over the coming twelve months. May your time in prayer bring you to a new and deeper level of affirmation in Living into your Faith (trust) in our Faithful (loving) God.

Kids4Christ Sunday School
Today our KIDS4CHRIST will learn all about Moses and his family. Make sure you ask them about his brother Aaron and also how his sister Miriam helped save his life.

We are in need of additional teachers and assistants, so if you are interested in joining our teaching team, please contact Sharon Corcoran at 609-706-8605 or [email protected] We will provided the materials, love and support to fill the children’s hearts with the love of Jesus.

This week we will continue with the study of Martin Luther and the Reformation with a focus on the event that happened over the next 2 years (1518-1519), which includes the Heidelberg and Leipzig Disputations.
