Friendship Sunday

Invite someone you know to join us on Sunday, September 11, 2016 for Friendship Sunday at University Lutheran!  It is going to be a great morning and a perfect time to welcome someone new.

Jesus taught a parable about a banquet in John 14 where a man threw a party and had a bunch of no-shows.  He told his servants to “Go out into the country lanes and behind the hedges and urge anyone you find to come, so that the house will be full.” (v.23)  Here at University Lutheran we take to heart Jesus’ call to invite and welcome new people beyond our walls!

It will be a fun day as we welcome back the UniLu Choir, kick-off the academic year with a welcome back liturgy, have a cookout with lots of great food, and hear about some of the great things that will be happening at UniLu in the year ahead!  Rain or shine, we are ready to welcome our community on September 11th!

More than ever, people look for recommendations from someone they know. Your invitation will often mean more than you realize…. 

Take the opportunity this month to reach out to someone in person, give them a Friendship Sunday postcard available at church throughout the month, forward the link to the UniLu website (www.uniluphila.org), or do whatever works for you.

Pray that many friends, neighbors, coworkers and family members will join us for worship and be moved by how much Jesus cares about them!

Joyfully, Pastor Fritz
