RALLY DAY was a fun-filled day as we began another year of Christian Education for our congregation.  Classes joined together for snacks, games, worship and songs.  Beginning on Sunday, September 20th, those students in grades pre-K through 3rd will gather with Miss Linda and Miss Dot, grades 4th through 6th will gather with Miss Karen and Miss Gloria, and the teens, Jr. & Sr. high, will gather with Pastor "De". 

Adults, once again, will continue meeting with Dr. Jim in the upstairs center room for study as they venture on the "Roman Road" study this year.

If you have a child, grandchild, or visiting family member in school or pre-school, she/he can join a class at any time.  Speak with the teachers for placement.

Dave Ramsery's "Financial Peace University" is being offered through Fields of Grace Outreach each week beginning on Sat., Sept. 20th through Sat., Nov. 15th, 10am, at the Fields of Grace Outreach pavilion building and coordinated by Pr. DeBartolo. Each week's lessons will bring you further toward how God wants you to manage the treasures with which He has blessed you.  As you are being educated about how to get out of debt, stay out of debt, budget for emergencies, grow financially secure, you will gain financial peace of mind through knowing what you have learned and how to use it wisely.

If you will live like no one else, later you can live like no one else.
Dave Ramsey

Registration is required as space is limited for this course.  The final class on Sat., Nov. 15th will be held at Evangelical Lutheran Church and will be a Stewardship Potluck Supper open to anyone else in the congregation and your family members.

Men's Via de Cristo

Weekend Renewal Retreat #17

Hard to believe that the upstate Damascus Road Chapter of the national Via de Cristo has been going on as long as it has... WOW! We're on #17!

This is a wonderful spiritual renewal weekend which fosters the spiritual growth as well as fostering the growth of leaders in the congregations of churches. 

Also, the Women's Via de Cristo Weekend Renewal Retreat is coming up November 6-9th.

If you would like to attend one of these annual weekends for men or women speak with Pastor DeBartolo or Marlene Schager.

The Capital District's Youth for Christ is again hosting their annual "Excel" retreat for senior high students, Friday night, January 16th through Sunday, January 18th, in Saratoga.  This year's theme is. . .


If we are to be genuinely growing in our faith journey with Jesus, we need to be sure we are allowing the changes Hes making on the inside to affect and show on the outside. Christ at work in us should translate into a changed life. I Timothy 1:5; 2 Corinthians 4:16

Registration must be made soon to benefit from the lower rates, so speak with retreat coordinator, Mrs. Amy Mitchell-Van Steele, as soon as possible if you want to attend this year.  All youth in Senior High School are invited to join us for this exciting weekend of praise, music, skits, workshops, and lots of fun!
