STEWARDSHIP THOUGHTS: 1 Peter 5:7 - “...casting all you anxieties on him, because he cares for you.” We have a Father in heaven – and He really cares for us and loves us. That is that basis of generosity, because such knowledge spells the end of anxiety and worry, which is where tight-fisted greed comes from.
LIFE QUOTES: “It was many long years before Elizabeth had the joy of seeing, in her own body, that God had not forgotten her. ‘He looked on me,’ she said. The proof was the baby growing inside her, though she was an old woman by that time. But you and I don’t need to wait so long. God has looked on us, too. The proof is the baby growing inside of Mary – God’s own dear Son Jesus, Who came to be your Savior. In Jesus, you can see that God has remembered you. He has looked on you with love – He has even made you His own child. You are not forgotten. You are beloved.” –Dr. Kari Vo, Lutheran Hours Ministries – A Life Quote from Lutherans for Life

WYOMING DISTRICT – LCMS FATHERS & SONS RETREAT June 26-28, 2020 "Confessing the Christian Faith in a Culture Increasingly Hostile to the Truth." CALLING ALL MEN! CALLING ALL FATHERS! CALLING ALL SONS! Please join us for a great retreat of learning, bonding, and having fun at the fantastic Lions Camp on Casper Mountain! Besides learning from a great seminary professor, we will have great food (plenty of bacon!) and great activities you can enjoy, such as hiking, shooting, archery range nearby, mountain biking, and most definitely a corn hole tournament! Our speaker is Rev. Dr. Peter Scaer from Concordia Theological Seminary. We will be learning of the opportunities and challenges of confessing the faith within the three estates of Church, family, and government. “We are living in uncertain times. I do not mean COVID 19, but the seismic shift in our nation's values. Abortion has been our national holocaust for half a century. Marriage has been redefined and undefined. We are confused about what it means to be male and female, and the gender revolution has led us to confusion in nearly every aspect of our lives. Faithful Christians are sometimes misled, others are confused, while still others are afraid. During our time together, we will talk about basic issues of creation, the God who made us male and female, and who gave us marriage and children. We will discuss how these are not simply social issues, but touch upon the very heart of our faith in God as creator and Christ as the Groom who laid down his life for his Bride, the Church. We will speak about courage, and the role of Christians in time of persecution and chaos.” Our study sessions will be Friday evening and Saturday morning. Saturday afternoon and evening is free time, and Sunday morning church is at Mount Hope in Casper with Dr. Scaer leading bible study afterwards. Registration is now open via this form and is also available online at www.wylcms.org/fsretreat2020/. Cost for registration is $100 per family unit. The Lions Camp has bunk bed cabins and nice showers and indoor plumbing but bring your own bedding, towel, and toiletries. Campsites are available nearby if desired. Registration costs cover all food as well, beginning with dinner Friday evening and ending Sunday morning. Finally, if any family needs financial assistance please let us know. We want fathers and sons to be able to come! As always, please encourage as many people to come! You are our best recruiter! We have registration forms available at the church in the office if you would like one or I can email the information to you.
