June 2018

Featured June 2018 — OUR FATHER'S CARE

You open Your hand; You satisfy the desire of every living thing (Psalm 145:16).

Icebreaker idea: Your Hands — Look at your hands. What do you see? Strong hands, aging hands, or the hands of a servant? Share a time when your hands cared for another.

Devotion — Opening: The Always-Open Hand
Devotion — Closing: God is in Control
Devotion — New: Our Father’s Care

Bible Study — Select from the Lutheran Woman’s Quarterly, Summer 2018. If copies of the printed Quarterly do not arrive in time for the society's meeting, consult the LWML website to download the online version of one of the Bible studies from that corresponding Quarterly magazine.

nullMission Servants ProjectENGAGE your congregation in a collection of food items for a local food pantry. In the summer months pantry supplies often run low. As God uses our hands here on earth, your collection will help satisfy the physical needs of those in your community.

Mission Servants ProjectEQUIP the widows and widowers in your congregation with a visit on the anniversary of their spouse’s birthday. Bring a small treat to enjoy, reminisce about the loved one, especially concerning the faithfulness of the individual to Jesus.

“For I know that my Redeemer lives, and at the last He will stand upon the earth. And after my skin has been thus destroyed, yet in my flesh I shall see God, whom I shall see for myself, and my eyes shall behold, and not another” (Job 19:25–27a).

Icebreaker idea: Face to Face – How do you imagine you will act and feel when you see Jesus face to face?

Devotion — Opening: I Know That My Redeemer Lives
Devotion — Closing: Faith Is … Living Life as a Procession of Triumph
Devotion
— New: He Lives/We Live

Bible Study — Select from the Lutheran Woman’s Quarterly, Spring 2018.

Mission Servants ProjectENJOY the glorious resurrection victory we have in Jesus with “victory ribbons.” Cut 1-inch by 8-inch lengths of smooth white ribbon. Use a permanent gold metallic marker to write “VICTORY” on each one. Hand out the ribbons as people arrive for Easter services to remind them we have victory over sin, death, and Satan because of Jesus’ death and resurrection for us.
