Tim Hetzner Begins Live In-Depth Bible Class on the Book of Acts - Started Monday, September 15 - It's Not Too Late to Register Print E-mail
Tim at WORD Join Tim Hetzner as he teaches live on Mondays - WORD - The New Testament, the Book of Acts study of the Bible.

The History of the first 30 Years of the Christian Church and our Return to What Worked!

Like so many things in life we need to return to the basics - our roots - in order to move forward. The Christian Church over the years has taken on many traditions and rituals. As important as they may be, they were not part of the early Christian church, a Church without walls, a Church that had explosive growth through Service of Mercy and Compassion to those who were in need - and a fever to tell others about Jesus! Come and explore over this 30 week course that history and explore how we can return to that Mission of the Church!

Tim will journey through the Book of Acts. Classes will look at the Bible in the context of history, culture and customs of the people at the time, as well as the archeological evidence.

WORD Bible Study Classes are non-denominational and are open to anyone regardless of church (or lack of) affiliation. This is a safe environment to study the Bible - no church membership solicitation will be allowed! This course will also be helpful to take for those wishing to travel with Tim on A Biblical Study tour in October of 2015 - Churches of Asia Minor - Highlighting the Biblical history and the growth of the early Church of Turkey.


This 30-session class started Monday, September 15th at Harris Bank in Palatine at 6AM, St Matthew Lutheran Church in Hawthorn Woods at 9:30AM and 7:00PM. To enroll, call 866-455-6466 or click here to register.

LERT Teams Deploy After Damaging Microburst in Palatine Print E-mail
Palatine Damage This past Friday afternoon, September 5th, a storm front rolled through Northern Ill District causing damage in a number of communities. One of the hardest hit communities was Palatine, Illinois where a microburst downed and damaged hundreds of trees in that community.

Lutheran Church Charities deployed LERT volunteers from 12 congregations to assist the Palatine LERT Team and members of Immanuel, Palatine with cutting downed trees, moving felled brush and debris to the curb. Over the two days, Saturday 9/6 and Sunday 9/7, 68 volunteers (35 of which were from Immanuel) assembled to create the chainsaw crews which worked on 38 job sites. Each home had trees that needed to be removed.


    The other LERT volunteers came from the following congregations:

  • Cross,Yorkville
  • St. Peter, Schaumburg
  • St. John, Wheaton
  • Calvary, Elgin
  • St. Matthew, Hawthorn Woods
  • St. Peter, Arlington Heights
  • Immanuel, Dundee
  • Immanuel, Belvidere
  • Peace, Lombard
  • Mt. Greenwood, Chicago

Two of the volunteers came from as far away as St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Bremen, Indiana and Christ Lutheran Church in Stevensville, Michigan.

In total for the two days those volunteers worked 191 hours. In most cases, LERT teams saved homeowners their deductible from their insurance policy to help focus costs of repairing damage to house or on vehicles.


When the LCC LERT volunteers left on Sunday evening, two jobs remained for the Palatine LERT Team to finish on Monday. Since Monday morning, LCC has referred four more home owners to the Palatine Team to reach out and serve.

Palatine homeowners and LERT volunteer, Thank you for all that you have done and for the lives of people you have touched. As all of our LERT volunteers know, it is not about cutting up the trees, dragging brush and debris to the curb, it is about being the hands and feet of Jesus, touching hurting people and praying with them - showing the love and compassion to the people He loves.
