The Lutheran Chorale


This year, 2017, marks an important date in the Christian Church as we arrive at the 500 year anniversary of the Protestant Reformation.

Bach’s magnificent Cantata 80: A Mighty Fortress. Joining their talents with The Chorale will be a chamber orchestra from the University of Denver Lamont School of Music, Lutheran High School’s Jubilate Choir, and guest musicians from area churches. Enjoy this free concert Saturday, October 28 at 7:30 pm, at Bethany Lutheran Church, 4500 E. Hampden Avenue, Cherry Hills Village, CO 80113; or Sunday, October 29 at 7:30 pm at Bethlehem Lutheran Church, 2100 Wadsworth Boulevard, Lakewood, CO 80214.


Here are a few announcements for the coming months:

1. Every day there are children in Colorado in need of a safe environment and we need more people to commit to these children! Informational meetings for foster care will be on October 11 from 12:30-1:30pm and from 5:30-6:30pm at the LFS Denver Metro office (363 S. Harlan Street, Suite 105, Denver, 80226). We hope to see you there! For more information, please contact Anne Hamilton at or 303-217-5869.

2. Older Adult & Caregiver Services offers free monthly telephone conferences to answer your questions about aging, called Ask Your Care Manager. Join us on October 11 from 12:00-1:00pm MST for the conference titled “Concerned about an Aging Family Member? When it’s Time to Step In.” Most have experienced the moment when we realize our aging loved one has changed. Maybe they seem more frail or appear to be having a harder time getting around. How do you know whether they are managing well or may benefit from additional assistance? Learn what signs to watch for that may indicate your loved one needs more assistance, and what you can do to address these concerns. Registration is required: sign up at or contact our staff at 303-217-5864 or 970-232-1180.
3. Older Adult & Caregiver Services offers free in-person consults to discuss Advance Care Planning and Advance Directives, such as Medical Power of Attorney and Living Will. We can help you understand your options, insure that your legal documents reflect your medical wishes, and get your directives completed and notarized. Don’t put it off. Contact our staff to schedule an appointment at 303-217-5864 or 970-232-1180.

As always, please do let me know if you no longer wish to receive our monthly announcements or if there is an updated contact. Thank you for your continued partnership!

A Prayer Vigil of Repentance
in Remembrance
Of the Victims of Abortion

Saturday, September 9, 2017, 1:00
Ascension Lutheran Church

Through the wood of the cross, joy has come into the world!
Death has been put to death. Satan’s evil work against the smallest
of our children will only continue for a time. Pausing to remember the deaths of these babies, to pray for those who are plagued by guilt over the deaths of their children, to come alongside women in crisis pregnancies is worth it, because each one of them is of worth to Christ.

Please join us in a Day of Remembrance

Let us kneel together before the Crucified One who yet lives, who is working all things, even death and suffering and hardship, for good. He causes us to pray and,
wonder of wonders! HE has seen fit to remember us day in and day out,
no matter who we are or what we’ve done. He hears and He answers!!!
