The CORE News

The video above is of the bulletin from James Skorzewski’s installation as pastor of the CORE on November 16, 2008.  The accompanying hymn on the video is “I Come, O Savior, to Thy Table” (TLH, 315) played by me on a classical guitar.

St. Paul’s Bulletin

St. Paul Evangelical Lutheran Church is the large WELS congregation one block from the CORE.  Recently, their church bulletin contained an insert with some information about the CORE.  Click here to download a pdf copy of that insert.

2009 Workshop for Congregations

On March 7, the Northern Wisconsin District held its 2009 Workshop for Congregations at Fox Valley Lutheran High School.  Pastor Skorzewski presented at this workshop, and here is the description of his presentation from the workshop’s brochure:

20.  Be RelevantPastor “Ski” James Skorzewski

This session will explore how relevant worship can be used to reach young people ages 19-35 who, statistically, are missing from churches today.  Examples will be given from Pastor Ski’s experience with such worship at St. Marcus Lutheran Church in Milwaukee, WI.  Pastor Ski will also discuss how he plans to use this approach at his new church, The CORE in Appleton.  [2009 Workshop for Congregations Northern Wisconsin District; March 7, 2009].
