You are welcome to worship with us at GLC on Sunday mornings. Whether attending our more informal half-hour service at 8:30 a.m. or the traditional service at 10:00 a.m., visitors are warmly welcomed.
Worship is alive at Georgetown Lutheran. Within our nearly 100 year-old Sanctuary surrounded by Tiffany-style stained-glass windows, oak ceiling beams, historic liturgical furnishings, and baroque-style tracker organ, we worship as a commitment to Christ in order to be equipped by God’s word and nourished at his table. We worship to celebrate his presence among us.
SUNDAY SCHOOL STEPPING STONE The members of the Georgetown Sunday School decided to create a present for the congregation and its visitors. During their closing sessions, the children and teachers created a uniquely colorful stepping stone to be placed in our church's meditation garden. The stone was dedicated at the early morning worship service and carried into the garden in a procession at the close of the worship service. Shining stones of many colors decorate this lovely addition to our garden.
Come and see the gift the children made, and then stay to rest in prayerful appreciation of the wonders of God's world. The Georgetown Lutheran Church mediation garden may be entered through the archway on Volta Street.
At Georgetown Lutheran Church this summer we have been telling the stories of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in our sermons. Here are the lessons we will be reading:
Dear Friends in Christ
As the spring season rushes toward the summer, many of us will be caught up in a variety of life passages. May and June are traditionally the most popular months for weddings, graduations, job changes, moving to new locations, and so many more important events that have the potential to change our lives from top to bottom.
They are also a time for celebrating family life on Mother's and Father's Day. These can be occasions joyful family gatherings and gift-giving. They can also be sad times for those who are grieving the death of their parents -- or their children. And they are often painful times for families caught up in turmoil and conflict -- of their own creation or caused by forces beyond their control.
And on holidays like Memorial Day, Flag Day, and the Fourth of July, we often pause to remember those who have made great sacrifices of their time, their talents, and their very lives as citizens dedicated to the well-being of a country that believes in a democratic ideal that cherishes the worth of every man, woman, and child in our life together.
It is a good time to remind ourselves that we all have different life experiences, and that we all need someone to listen to -- and care about -- our life stories. All the ups and downs, the exciting twists of fate and the frightening turns of events, the amazing love and the heartbreaking loneliness of our days -- every moment is an opportunity to share ourselves with others or to seek comfort or escape in isolation.
The God we worship is a deity to whom relationships are immensely significant. God's very nature -- one being in three distinct persons -- is an image of differing entities in perfect balance and harmony one with the other. God is often identified not by a single name, but as a participant in some kind of relationship: "the God of Abraham and Sarah," "the Lord of hosts," "the Father of Jesus Christ," "the Son of David." The list of such descriptions goes on and on. So we know that God cares deeply about whatever is happening in our relationships with one another -- and in our relationship with God's very self.
In all the life passages that we enjoy or endure this year, I hope we will take the time to lift them to our God in prayer and find the grace God longs to pour out upon us in those frequent communications between our selves and our steadfastly faithful God.
