At the Voters Meeting on Monday, July 26th there will be discussion about updating the membership list, parsonage repairs, holding a fall festival and an anniversary recognition for Pastor. Plan to be in attendance to do the work of the church.

The Elders have decided that beginning on the first Sunday in August (August 1, 2021) we will be going back to passing the offering plates during the service, ushering people out at the end of the service and going to the railing for communion.  

It will soon be September and time for the Ladies Aid to assemble layettes. Each layette includes receiving blanket, 2 sleepers, 2-3 onsies or t-shirts, sweater/jacket, cap, wash cloth, 6 cloth diapers and 2 diaper pins. The stack of wash cloths is very slim right now. Diapers are always needed. Any donations are greatly appreciated.

The cleaning list is up on the bulletin board. More people are needed to sign up and help clean the church. It doesn’t matter how many people are coming or not coming, the church still needs to be cleaned. Sign up early to get the month you want!

The Lutheran Hour Listen this, and every Sunday, at 12:30 pm to the Lutheran Hour broadcast on KDUZ 1260 AM radio or anytime at our Lutheran Hour page.
