OCTOBER GOSPEL OUTREACH ACTIVITY
Hope for the Holidays: Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service
Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it. Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering (Hebrews 13:2-3).

WHERE LOVE ABIDES BIBLE STUDY BY DONNA PYLE
The Gospel of John invites us to abide in Christ, and live daily in closer communion and fellowship with Him. However, many Christians stop short of entering into that abiding intimacy. Through this on-location and in-studio combination Bible study, we walk through God’s vineyard over eight lessons to learn the practical and spiritual applications of connecting with the True Vine to bear fruit that lasts. These beautiful verses from John 15 help us understand and put into practice what it means to abide in Christ.
- The True Vine and the Vinedresser
- Fruit-Bearing Branches
- Failure to Abide
- Abiding Prayers
- The Vineyard of Love
- The Commandment to Love
- Friends, Not Servants
- Bearing Fruit
