Nativity will celebrate its 60th anniversary on June 25!
Join us as we honor and give thanks for our charter members, and to the early families who began and supported Nativity during the decade of 1957-1967.
I’m celebrating seven years of service to Nativity Church this summer. According to our congregation’s practice, I will take a ten-week sabbatical. This means stepping away from my ministry responsibilities for a time of rest and spiritual renewal. My plan involves weekly hour-long sessions with a credentialed spiritual coach. That spiritual coach will help me find the right balance of time between contemplation and recreation during these ten weeks.
As pastors, we work all but a few weekends each year. This means that family time is frequently cut-short or even missed from week to week. The purpose of my two month sabbatical is to spend intentional time with my family and engage in enough spiritual reflection to deepen my reverence for these family relationships. The ultimate goal is to strengthen my resolve to find continued balance between my work-life and family-life as I continue to serve God’s church.
Thanks Nativity! Your generosity makes this experience possible.
Nativity Church lifts up youth experiencing homelessness through our partnership with Lutheran Social Service (LSS).
This weekend Nativity welcomes Kelly Ramer, manager of the SafeHouse (LSS). At all of our services, Kelly will describe the work we support at this LSS emergency shelter for youth experiencing homelessness. Also, Pastor Kathryn Teide, director of church partnerships at Lutheran Social Services, will be delivering the message at all of our services. We are delighted to have both of these leaders return to Nativity to encourage our continued support of young people through the work of Lutheran Social Service.
Last Wednesday, May 16 over thirty people (pictured to the right)from Nativity Church attended the LSS Metro Benefit Lunch for Youth Experiencing Homelessness. Nativity was recognized at this event as a recipient of the prestigious Servant of Christ Award which is awarded to congregations for their exemplary support of Lutheran Social Service. Over $100,000.00 was raised by attendees at the benefit which included our group from Nativity and twenty-five other congregations.
