Sunday we continue the study of Martin Luther by exploring "Luther and His Enemies." If you think today's political discord is nasty, wait until you hear what Luther said about some of his fellow Christians! We'll learn about what were Luther's major concerns and consider why his language was sometimes quite bitter and abusive. Join the discussion in the Fellowship Hall at 11:30.
Bring food for the post-holiday food pantry needs in Arlington and to help those with no paycheck. If you or your neighbor needs some, take what has been donated to give directly to them. A number of business are offering free meals and food to furloughed workers with government or contractor IDs. You can find them listed on TV news channel sites.
The church office is not observing regular hours next week.
