2014 LLC Summer Services, July 3-6, Rogers, MN



News & Notes

September Update

“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it” (Prov. 22:6). As summer vacations end and schools resume, we are reminded about the importance of education and teaching our children. During the weeks of summer, many of our young have been able to learn through confirmation schools, youth camps, and summer employment—even serving as camp counselors. Now a new school year begins, and many begin or continue their education in primary, secondary, and higher education settings. Member congregations resume Sunday school to teach about Scripture and matters of living faith. The learning that takes place in the time of youth lasts a lifetime. Let us nurture and embrace opportunities for education and be thankful for them, especially to teach our young about God’s Word and living Christianity. 


August Update

A summer festival, the 2014 LLC Summer Services and meetings, concluded on July 6. God gave a time of refreshment to pause around His Word in the fellowship of His children. Saturday evening’s youth presentation, “Remember, now thy Creator in the days of thy youth” (Eccl. 12:1), by Sam Roiko, spoke of the joy of a child of God and noted that the time of youth is a special time of visitation. “Rejoice, O young man, in thy youth; and let thy heart cheer thee in the days of thy youth” (Eccl. 11:9). The Summer Services weekend was truly a time of joy for the children of God who gathered there!

June/July Update

“Come and see” (John 1:46) is the motto for the upcoming 2014 LLC Summer Services in Rogers, Minn. This was the invitation given by Phillip, who had found Jesus, to his friend Nathanael, who doubted whether Jesus of Nazareth was the promised Messiah. Whether you attend in person or listen via the Internet webcasts, “Come and see.” Welcome to the festive worship services of God’s children, July 3–6!

Moses’ Farewell Speech

Deuteronomy 8:10: Here we can read of a dying man’s farewell speech to his fellow people. God’s servant Moses had extended God’s will to the people of Israel during a long journey. God had led them across the dry and rough wilderness of Sinai for 40 years “to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no” (Deut. 8:2).


August Home and Family: Courtesy and Good Manners

What is the meaning of courtesy? To put it simply, it is “polite behavior.” Other similar words that come to mind are respect, thoughtfulness, kindness, and good manners. To be courteous is to show thoughtful consideration of others.
