IMPORTANT CHANGE – Sunday, June 14 Worship

June 13, 2009

Dear Hope Members,

Hope Lutheran Church has sustained water damage in the Sanctuary due to the recent weather. Also, the church is without electricity and there is no way to dry the carpet.

Therefore, worship tomorrow will be held on the church grounds at 9:00 am only. Worship will be in the form of a blended service with Steve Hawkins on guitar and Cathy Peterson on the battery operated keyboard. Wear cool clothes, including head protection – apply sunscreen – and bring your lawn chairs. Pastors Wendy & Joel are in Spokane WA this weekend. Matt Cleaver will be giving the sermon. There will be no communion.

The phone tree is run through Karine’s computer and is not available because of lack of power.

When you receive this message, please give your church friends a call. We do not yet have all members on the email list nor do we have access to new members’ phone numbers.

Thanks for your cooperation.

Custom Designed: A Life Worthy of the Call

June 1, 2009

June 8-10, 6:15-9:00PM (every evening)

Hope Lutheran Church, Cedar Hill, TX

YOU are custom designed and custom called for a custom designed life! God does not only call pastors and professional church staff. Rather, God calls everyone. More importantly, God is CALLING YOU. God’s unique vision for you will shape all aspects of life—from work, church, and community to family and friends.

Perhaps you are in transition? College-age, newly married, 40+ and restless, retirement is upon you, a life-changing event, or the economic crisis is a concern to you.

Give your self a gift! Energetic and fun, this seminar will provide valuable scriptural insight, practical wisdom, and more importantly time for understanding your unique individuality, recognizing God’s guiding hand, and even grappling with two of life’s more practical yet significant questions: Who am I? & What am I to do?

The presenters are Pastor Wendy Berthelsen and Steve Harr. Pastor Wendy A.W. Berthelsen is pastor of ministry in daily life. Previously she was a biomedical engineer, receiving three US Patents. Steve Harr is a business attorney and founding partner of Munsch Hardt Kopf & Harr, P.C. The presenters have nearly thirty years of combined experience teaching about God’s unique call.

Together with their spouses, they are co-founders of Call Inc. (www.callinc.org), a non- profit Christian teaching mission dedicated to helping individuals discover God’s unique call by providing seminars and resources to assist in custom designing a life, family, church, or organization around God’s call. Cost: $25 ($10 if you already own a reflection guide)

RSVP by calling Pastor Wendy (972-291-7902). You may also pre-register by mailing the registration fee with your name, phone number and email to: Call inc., 5321 Joe Wilson Road, Midlothian, TX 76065
