Jay Austin wants to sell used cars in the worst way ... and that's exactly how he does business at his dealership. Promising much more than he can ever deliver, he'll do whatever it takes to sell a car. His manipulative ways permeate all of his relationships—even his wife and son know they can't trust him.
But as Jay works on restoring a classic vonvertible, he begins to see that God is working on restoring him as well. Coming face-to-face with the reality of how he truly conducts himself, Jay Austin begins the ride of his life as he commits to honoring God with his business, his relationships, and his life!
Each holiday season, Saron Lutheran Church anticipates and relies on a seasonal increase in contributions. It is through the donations of every individual and family in the congregation that we are able to carry on our work now and throughout the year.
If you need a convenient way to make recurring contributions or plan to make an additional gift before the end of the year, we encourage you to check out our electronic giving option. As the pace of life speeds up around the holidays, you may find electronic giving a most welcome way to make contributions.
To set up a recurring giving schedule, please complete a Simply Giving authorization form and return it to the church office.
Thank you for your generosity and support!

Be Intentional About Celebrating
Christmas All Season
Long With a Simple
If your family is like mine we look forward to the holiday season all year long, the Christmas music, decorations, hot chocolate, etc., but the calendar always seems to fill up and a hectic pace ensues! Then I blink and it's over and much of what I had intended never got done.
Well we have a simple way to bring meaning to the season and we only need 24 families signed up by October 12th to make this work! We have picked scripture for December 1st -24th that reflect the season.
In October, each family that signs up will be assigned the scripture from one of those days, then will choose a small, simple ornament that relates to that scripture (as much as possible). Each family will then make 24 copies of that ornament -- bringing them to Saron November 8 at 10:00 a.m. when we will gather together, divide the ornaments among the 24 families and create our calendars.
The ornaments do not need to be complex they can be as simple as a cinnamon stick tied with twine, or mini pinecones etc. We will provide the cloth bags all you need to bring are your ornaments and your ribbon of choice.
Trunk or Treat
October 31st 6-8pm
Trunk or Treat is a SAFE and FREE community Halloween event for the entire family!

Our parking lot will be transformed into a fun place with cars with decorated trunks overflowing with goodies for the children.
Many non-scary, kid-friendly games and activities will be going on.

response this year
We need your help to make it happen again! We need people to:
To keep our event family friendly we ask that those participating not decorate their trunks with a scary theme.

Join Us for a 4 Week Class – It’s Personal
You don't have to understand everything to believe in something...
This series is directed to people who want to improve their personal connection with God, but who have genuine questions, doubts, and concerns. We will utilize a video series by Andy Stanley who makes a case for the fact that adults don't become followers of Christ by getting all their questions answered. In most instances, something happens that impacts those questions. And that something is always personal. Each video will be followed by discussion to explore what it means to us.
Classes are offered Wednesday nights from 7:15 – 8:30, starting Wednesday, October 22 through Wednesday, November 19. (Note to Parents: This class was scheduled on Wednesdays as it is a night that is typically less scheduled with school and sports events.) We hope that you’ll join us!
