Due to loss of power at both Dr. Steinbronn's home and the District Office we will be postponing our meeting on August 5th with Congregational Presidents & Treasurers. Once we solidify another date in August we will be back in touch and hope you will be able to join us then. We're sorry about any inconvenience this may cause! We will post the new date across our newsletters, social media, website and via email to anyone who previously registered for this meeting.
Every theology or philosophy has a starting point or touchstone thesis through which it attempts to unify and explain human existence. The primary ontological axiom for the Christian is the one, living, triune God. The primary epistemological axiom is divine revelation. All core beliefs of the Christian faith depend on these basic axioms.
Thus, the most important step for Christians is to be informed about the biblical worldview. Then, as Christians, we are not only to know the right worldview, the worldview that tells us the truth of what is, but consciously to act upon that worldview so as to influence society in all its parts and facets across the whole spectrum of life.
During our time together, we will explore God’s truth concerning the main categories of human existence: truth concerning the nature and orientation of God, the nature of the world around us, the nature and orientation of humankind, the basis and nature of truth, how a person is to live in the presence of God and in the presence of other human beings, and the role that the Christian faith is to have in 21st century society.
We welcome you all to join us for the annual District Pastor’s Wives’ Retreat! The dates for the retreat are Friday Evening, September 25 through Saturday afternoon, September 26, 2020. This year’s theme is “Brokenness and Restoration: Moving from Shame to Grace” by Deaconess Heidi Goehmann.
Please consider joining us for a wonderful time to get away, share in fellowship, catch up with old friends, and build new relationships. We will take all precautions recommended for COVID19 as well as the Hotel. If we feel that it is still not safe by September 1, 2020 we will make other arrangements for our gathering. Thank you for your responses to our survey concerning the retreat. Click the buttons below for more information or to register!
We invite you to join us on Saturday, October 24th for a Wellness Convocation at Somerset Hills Lutheran Church in Basking Ridge! A continental breakfast and lunch will be provided.
Each church will receive a copy of Dr. Hartung's book "Holding Up the Prophet's Hand". We would love to have representation from each congregation including leadership and Pastor. The convocation will deal with Church Wellness: How to Have a Healthy Congregation. It will help us look at how we work with each other and deal with one another and how to have healthy relationships in your church. It will also look at worker wellness from janitor to pastor and how a congregation can help to ensure their workers health and a good workplace environment.
