unday, September 22


WHEN: 10:30 a.m.

WHERE: Our Savior’s Lutheran Church, 650 West Las Palmas Avenue

DETAILS: Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church will host David Garrett and his wife, Kathleen, for presentation on “The Gospel in the Feasts of Israel.” David’s father was confirmed as a young man at Our Saviour’s. The Garretts have been involved with Jews for Jesus since 1975 and have served on staff at the international headquarters in San Francisco since 1981. David serves on the Executive Leadership Team and is the Children and Youth Ministry Director. Kathleen serves in the Development Department.

Jews for Jesus is an agency that proclaims that Jesus is the Messiah of Israel and Savior of the world. The late Moishe Rosen, a Jew who believed in Jesus for over 35 years, founded the organization. However, Dr. Rosen was quick to point out that he did not “start” Jews for Jesus. “Jews for Jesus began about 2,000 years ago, around 32 C.E., give or take a year. Jesus' first disciples were Jewish, and there have been some Jewish people who have believed in Him ever since.” The organization has permanent branches in eight North American cities (San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston, Chicago, Toronto, New York City, Washington D.C. and Fort Lauderdale) as well as over 127 volunteer chapters spanning some 41 states and five countries. The group's international branches are headquartered in Johannesburg, London, Paris, Odessa, Moscow, Essen, Rio de Janeiro, Kharkov, Dnepopretrovsk, and Tel Aviv. To the Jews for Jesus, believing in Jesus makes sense in light of the Jewish Bible and in light of their experiences as “believers.”
