St. Matthew Lutheran Church
Weekly Update
THIS SUNDAY: Three young members of our congregation will be confirmed: Elizabeth Tripp, Leah West, and Lance Amonson. Please pray for them and enjoy witnessing this big step in their life of faith. 

Our message will focus on Psalm 73. Sometimes we are dissatisfied with our lives, especially when we compare ourselves to rich and famous. This week we remember how those to know the Lord have something greater than anything this world can buy

PLEASE BRING YOUR CHURCH RETREAT FORMS THIS WEEK!! 
It'll be fun. We have extra zipline and a few baptisms scheduled. 

BEER:30 THIS SUNDAY
After church this week anyone who wants to is invited to walk to Spokanite Brewery 1500 feet south of church. The owner said they would open at 11:30 instead of the usual 12pm, although I need to reconfirm since we spoke a few weeks ago after he's had a few. There's no food, but you're welcome to bring food or non-alcoholic drinks. 

NEXT WEEK (9/25): 8AM SERVICE OPTION
Since the entire K-8 will be singing at the 10am service, we will have an additional 8am service for those who want more space. 

Here's a YouTube of our previous service. We talked about Psalm 90 and the brevity of life. 

Here's last week's Sunday Bible study

Sunday school continues, bring the kids or consider joining adult Bible study. You'll learn a lot, especially from the other members of the congregation whose insights you can hear at this time. 
Thanks to Levi Tripp for this artwork inspired by a recent service. Notice the people on the left are happy because they understand what Jesus has done for them, but the people on the right are sad because they don't know. Feel free to share artwork or photos for the weekly email. Sorry I forgot to take photos at our smokey potluck last Sunday.

YOUTH NIGHT SEPTEMBER 25

Note to adults: If you have a nicer house and you're willing to host a Youth Night, please speak to Pastor West. We need volunteers. We can consider a different time in the future, but I wanted something on the calendar. 

YOUTH GROUP OUTING OCTOBER 15
The youth group decided at their meeting last spring to go to Scarywood together on October 15. Please purchase your tickets ahead of time to save money and time. Let Pastor West know you're attending, and we'll organize the car pool the week of. Note: Only 13 years old and older may attend. 

NEW BEGINNINGS: A HOME FOR MOTHERS
We had a nice presentation tonight by the people running this ministry. Anyone who's pro-life should consider contributing to this ministry that mentors new mothers from troubled backgrounds.
