and befriended young people, inviting them into the life of the congregation and engaging them in the practices of faith.

Meet our New Youth Minister: YOU!

What does this mean for youth ministry in the program year ahead here at OHLC? Several things. First, we will strive to be more intentionally intergenerational in our programming. The biggest move this direction will come when our “adult ed” hour this fall will attempt to include older youth in our Bible study, utilizing fun video shorts and carefully crafted discussion questions and techniques. (More about this next month.) It will mean planning youth and family events which give parents more opportunities to practice their faith in front of their children and for families to grow in faith together. It will mean working to draw youth into current ministries of our congregation. For instance, I intend to take the high school youth to evening worship at El Camino de Emaus this October, accompanied by adults who are passionate about this ministry. I’m also planning to involve the youth when the Watoto Children’s Choir from Uganda comes to OHLC in March. We will be more intentional about creating conditions where youth can rub elbows with faith-filled adults so that faith can be caught, and not just taught.

I

’ve been doing a lot of thinking about youth ministry this summer. I’ve been reviewing some important research collected by the Youth and Family Institute at Augsburg College in Minneapolis. I went back and reviewed my notes from our conversations with Professor Mark Jackson from the Children, Youth, and Family Center at Trinity Lutheran College in Everett. I’ve been talking to parents, congregational leaders, and young people. All of this has led me to believe we need to commission a new youth minister. That new youth minister is you. All of you. I’m serious. I occasionally get asked if or when we might hire someone to do youth ministry here at Oak Harbor Lutheran Church, but I don’t think that’s the right approach. Certainly there have been and continue to be situations where a paid staff person dedicated to youth ministry can do important and effective ministry. This has been true here at OHLC. But there are compelling reasons for doing things differently.

Luth Youth, our high school youth group, will continue. There is still a place for age-specific events. We’re already planning pizza parties and bowling trips and a trip to the Warm Beach light display at Christmastime. We have a wonderful team of youth leaders and parents here at OHLC whom I’m asking to divvy up the year and help with the planning. We want our kids to have fun, safe, wholesome youth group events to which they can invite their friends. Their relationships with other youth are important and certainly influential.

Research is showing that the “pied piper” approach to youth ministry has serious problems. This approach involves hiring someone – usually a high energy, charismatic type – to attract and entertain youth. The problems with this approach are many. These positions have a high turnover factor. These types of youth groups tend to operate on the margins of congregational life, isolating youth from other adults and ministries. Most significantly, they aren’t very effective in transmitting an enduring faith. In short, a charismatic “hired hand” youth leader can whip up an enthusiastic crowd, but it takes a congregation to pass on a lasting, meaningful faith.

But make no mistake about it – you, as an adult here at OHLC, have more influence on these young people than you know. You are a youth minister! As such, I encourage you to learn the names of our young people. Invite them and include them in your ministries whenever possible. Let’s learn to do youth ministry in a different way: as a congregation. Consider yourself commissioned!

Practicing Christians in their 20s have been polled about who or what has been most influential in their faith life. Overwhelmingly, parents came in first. Other adults in their congregation who had befriended them came in second. Pastors, youth pastors, and youth group came in at a surprising distance behind these. The research is proving the old adage: “Faith is caught, not taught.” It appears that faith is particularly caught from parents and other adults who have mentored

It’s time to saddle up for the

“Catchup” campaign update

OHLC CHURCH PICNIC

Catchup is something extra. It is something on the side. It is something you put on top of something else. We’ve been asking you for a little “catchup” on top of your regular offerings to help us catch up on our budget. So far, you have responded to the tune of over $1800.00! This amount will be matched by an anonymous donor from the congregation, bringing the total to $3,600.00 in just the first couple weeks of the campaign. But we aren’t done yet! The catchup campaign continues throughout the summer. Your gifts will continue to be matched up to $5,000.00. And remember: when you give $50 you will receive a special, limited-edition bottle of catchup as a thank-you gift (mustard now available as an alternative). When you give $100 you’ll be thanked with a package of hot dogs from 3 Sisters Cattle Company. Write “catchup” on the memo line of your check, and see Carol the Catchup Lady in the narthex to receive your gift! Thank you!

DATE: Sunday, August 4 TIME: Worship, 11:00 AM; Lunch, 12:00 Noon LOCATION: Muzzall Farm, Scenic Heights Road ALL ARE WELCOME, but a headcount would be helpful – so RSVP on an opportunity form found in your Sunday bulletin or to a member of the Muzzall family. FOOD: Roger & Georgette Anglum will provide mouthwatering BBQ chicken and pork. Please bring a side dish or dessert to share. Cash donations for the meat and other hosting expenses are appreciated. Please give directly to a member of the Muzzall family. There will also be a basket for cash at the picnic.

75th Anniversary Celebration set for Sept. 29

O

ak Harbor Lutheran Church will be pulling out all the stops as we celebrate our 75th anniversary as a congregation on Sunday, September 29. We’ll have festival worship services, a banquet at 1:00 PM, and a program at 2:00 PM. Our new bishop, Pastor Kirby Unti, will be visiting to celebrate with us.

Growing & Learning

Marriage Care on summer hiatus Our Marriage Care ministry continues on hiatus over the summer. We will resume our monthly meetings on Sunday, September 22. Mark your calendar and plan to join us! More information will be forthcoming in the September newsletter.

Looking ahead to Sunday School

S

ummer is in full swing. I hope everyone is enjoying the sunny, warm weather – hiking, swimming, vacations, and other outdoor activities. (Have you checked OHLC’s website and Facebook page to see all the ‘Where is Jesus?’ sightings in our Sunday School summer project? He’s been getting around!)

COMING UP: Rally Sunday Ministry Fair set for Sept. 8

With all this summertime activity, it’s hard to realize how much will be starting up again in just a month’s time… and that includes Sunday School!

We will kick off the program year on Sunday, September 8 with a Ministry Fair between and after services. All ministry leaders are encouraged to prepare display tables for their respective ministries. Mark your calendars and start getting ready!

Rally Sunday will be September 8. We’ll continue to use the Spark curriculum, but we’ll be using the lectionary approach for our classes instead of the rotation model we’ve used over the past few years. This means there will be a new lesson every week that follows the Sunday scripture readings and sermon theme, allowing for more discussion and clarification for our youth. We are in need of some basic supplies, and we’ll have a list of those items posted soon in the narthex.

School kit items gathered for Lutheran World Relief There’s a collection box in the narthex for the following school supplies:

If you are interested in teaching for a month, shepherding a class, or substituting, please make a note in the weekly opportunity form found in your worship service bulletin or contact me directly. We are looking forward to this upcoming year!

- Spiral notebooks (Wide or college ruled, 70 sheets. No loose leaf paper) - Pencil sharpeners (Small) - Erasers (About 2 ½” long) - Rulers (12”, including metric measurements) - Blunt scissors (Safety scissors with embedded steel blades work well) - Ballpoint pens, black or blue ink (No gel ink, please)

Men’s Ministry

Fellowship of Saint Bernard & Lutheran Men in Mission

Coupeville Book Group… …meets Tuesday, August 7 in the home of Julie Ward, 1053 Halsey Drive, to consider Loving Frank, by Nancy Horan:

“Who let the dogs out? Woof, woof.”

I

t’s summer! Young pups and old dogs are on the loose, running all around the place (some even chasing cars)… but we’re a happy pack and doing our best to be on good behavior. For those who are sticking close to home, here are the events to look forward to in August.

“I have been standing on the side of life, watching it float by. I want to swim in the river. I want to feel the current.” So writes Mamah Borthwick Cheney in her diary as she struggles to justify her clandestine love affair with Frank Lloyd Wright. Four years earlier, in 1903, Mamah and her husband, Edwin, had commissioned the renowned architect to design a new home for them. During the construction of the house, a powerful attraction developed between Mamah and Frank, and in time the lovers, each married with children, embarked on a course that would shock Chicago society and forever change their lives. In this ambitious debut novel, fact and fiction blend together brilliantly. While scholars have largely relegated Mamah to a footnote in the life of America’s greatest architect, author Nancy Horan gives full weight to their dramatic love story and illuminates Cheney’s profound influence on Wright. Fiction, 400 pages

First of all is the exciting Lutheran Men in Mission breakfast and meeting on Saturday, Aug. 3, 8:00 to 9:30 AM in the Herrigstad fellowship hall. Coffee is ready at 7:30 and a freshly-cooked breakfast will be served at 8:00. Our guest speaker for the meeting is David Kobelin, professional life coach and pastor with 25 years’ experience as a mentor of good habits for success in all areas of life. The theme scripture for the morning is Joshua 1:9. Bring your Bibles and be ready to take some notes. This is a great opportunity to invite a neighbor or friend to sit with you. Breakfast table talk will be the sharing of one really super successful accomplishment in life… or one still being dreamed about.

Discussion leader is Carol Wall. For information about this group, contact Gaye Rodriguey, 678-3561, gaye@tobysuds.com.

On Tuesdays, Aug. 13 & 27, the Fellowship of Saint Bernard (a.k.a. Old Dogs and Young Pups) will meet from 12:00 noon to 1:30 PM in the Herrigstad fellowship hall for our regular lunch/meeting. Join us for a filling meal, the chance to share what we’ve been doing for the summer, plus a cup or two of Lutheran coffee with a fat-free (???) dessert, and then some great Bible discussion and a time for prayer. We’re still just touching the tip of the iceberg with the Master Builders Bible and look forward to many hours of great conversation based on the scriptures and the helpful footnotes and study questions. See me if you’re interested in purchasing a copy; the cost is $20 + shipping.

Second Wednesday Book Group… …meets August 14 at 1:00 PM in the library/fireside room for a discussion of Zeitoun, by Dave Eggers: In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, a longtime New Orleans couple is cast into an unthinkable struggle with forces beyond the wind and water. In the days after the storm, Abdulrahman Zeitoun traveled the flooded streets in a secondhand canoe helping others. A week later, on Sept. 6, 2005, he abruptly disappeared – arrested and accused of being an agent of al Qaeda. Non-fiction, 351 pages

These opportunities are open to every man who actively attends OHLC. Your willingness to attend these events (and put up with the rest of us) would be a real blessing for all. Come and see.

In Sympathy Our hearts go out to Lynne, Eric, Mark, and Becky Ogren following the death of Lynne’s father, Larry Heppe. We’re thankful that Lynne was able to fly down from Alaska to be with her parents in California during her father’s final hours. Cards may be sent to Lynne and family at PO Box 1667, Wrangell, AK, 99929, where she continues to serve her internship with Island of Faith Lutheran Church. We’re also keeping Carlie Kenny in our prayers following the unexpected death of her biological father in mid-July. Carlie flew to Baltimore to be with her 94-year-old grandmother for the memorial service, certainly not something she and her parents, Ken & Vickie Longshore, had anticipated as she prepares to begin classes this fall at PLU. We received word on Sunday morning, July 28, that Shirley Cline had died in her sleep. As Pastor Spencer noted when he made the announcement at the end of worship that morning, he had visited her at the care facility in Mount Vernon on the 26th and that outcome was exactly what Shirley told him she had been praying for. She was 82 and had been growing increasingly weary of chronic pain, cancer treatments, and other ailments. Shirley joined OHLC 5 years ago. She was a talented artist, and while her health permitted she was a participant in the Oak Harbor Bay Artists watercolors group. We offer our sympathy to her son John and daughter-in-law Rita of our congregation and to their extended family. Prayers, please, for our Lord’s comforting presence with Donna Lay and family following the July 29th death of her mother, as they are still mourning the loss of her husband, Chris, on June 17. 7


Compassion Ministry

Stephen Ministry offers shelter in a time of storm What does a Stephen Minister do? In short, they are gifts from God to help shelter you during the storm. Stephen Ministers listen, accept, care, and walk with a person who is going through a difficult time. They provide support – prayer, scripture, forgiveness, unconditional acceptance, conversation – in appropriate ways to meet the needs of the care receiver. They are not counselors or therapists. They do not give advice or tell people how to solve their problems.

Ministry of the Month: Josephine Home

O

ne of our wonderful partners in ministry here in the Northwest Washington Synod is Josephine Home, an intergenerational care facility in Stanwood. Josephine is owned and governed by ELCA congregations in Northwest Washington, including Oak Harbor Lutheran Church. Pastor Spencer attends their annual meetings yearly with our congregational delegates. Our current delegates to Josephine are Bob Wall and Carole Lafond

In the words of the ministry’s motto, the Stephen Minister is the Care-giver; God is the Cure-giver. They stand by the person and minister to his or her spiritual needs as God works through the relationship to bring hope and healing to the care-receiver.

Josephine is an amazing place. Children from the community participate in day care programs alongside elderly residents receiving full-time care, all of whom receive loving attention from the remarkable staff. Josephine’s mission and philosophy statement make it clear that this is a community which is deeply rooted in Christian servanthood:

Contact the church office, 360-679-1561 and ask for Pastor Marc Stroud, or e-mail him, mdstroud54@hotmail.com, to get connected to a Stephen Minister.

Josephine is a Christian community welcoming people of all ages, providing rehabilitation, assisted living, long-term care and child care services.

New Directory

As a Christian based facility, we are called to be a servant people reaching out with his love in concrete ways to those who are in need. It is our mission as Josephine to reach out by providing the elderly, the children and all others in need of our care, with facilities, services and advocacy on non-profit basis. We are to provide housing, facilities, services and programs especially designed to meet the physical, social, emotional, and spiritual needs of those in our care.

A new, non-pictorial church directory will be printed soon. Please let us know if you have any changes to your address, phone number or e-mail address! Make a note on an opportunity form found in your Sunday worship bulletin or e-mail Carol Wiskow, office@oakharborlutheran.org. Thank you!

We will be lifting up the ministry of Josephine home throughout the month of August. Join us August 11th for a special adult education hour to learn more about Josephine.

Included in this newsletter are Prayer Ventures and The Spirit for August. The deadline for articles for the September newsletter is Wednesday, Aug. 21. E-mail articles to martha@oakharborlutheran.org or bring them to the church office.
