Lutherans Engaging North Georgia

Dear saints,

Here is a brief mission update on our collective witness to the words and deeds of our Lord Jesus Christ in our area.

  1.  There will be a new opportunity for pastors and laypeople to grow in their understanding of the Old Testament in Hebrew and the New Testament in Greek.  It is a translation group lead by our area LCMS pastors that will look at each of the assigned Biblical readings in the life of the church year in an original language study.  This study will begin on August 14 at 10:00 AM at Living Faith Lutheran in Cumming (1171 Atlanta Hwy) every Tuesday.  Come and grow in the inexhuastive depth of God’s living and active Word!
  2. There will be a commissioning and installation of Katherine Warnke (Rev. Joseph Warnke’s wife) as deaconess at Christ Our Savior Evangelical Lutheran Church, Griffin, GA.  The service will be on Sunday afternoon, July 15, 2018, at 4:00PM at Christ Our Savior.  Pastor David Brighton of Mount Calvary Lutheran Church, Warner Robins, GA, will be officiating and preaching.  There will be a reception following the service.  No RSVP is required.  If you are unable to come, please pray for Kate as she begins her service.
  3. The members of Rivercliff Lutheran Church (8750 Roswell Rd in Sandy Springs) invite you to the instalation of their new Associate Pastor, Jacob Berlinski, on Sunday, July 1 at 5 PM.  Thanks be to God!  There will be a reception immediately following the service in Strickert Hall.  RSVP by June 25th to
  4. Christ the Shepherd Lutheran Church (4655 Webb Bridge Road in Alpharetta) is also pleased to announce the Lord’s provision for their congregation through a new Associate Pastor, Aaron Sterling.  Rev. Aaron Sterling will be installed at Christ the Shepherd on July 29th at 4 PM.  Dr. Jamison Hardy, Bishop of the English District will officate the installation.  Pastor David Brighton (Rev. Sterling’s vicarage supervisor) will be the preacher.  There will be a fellowship dinner following.

There is great purpose in the Lord bringing these two pastors and this deaconness to ministry in our area.  Pray for them as God speaks His mighty word and reveals the mercy of His Son through them as they serve with great joy!
