We invite all staff of our area clinics and hospitals to join us on Sunday, Oct. 20, for worship and a special blessing for all of the care you provide to our community.
The Butter Braid Fundraiser starts this Sunday and runs through Sunday, November 3. Youth going to Sugar Creek Bible Camp or on the summer mission trip can pick up order forms from the church office. All order forms must be turned in on November 3 with the money.
Orders will be available for pick-up on Sunday, Nov. 17, after both worship services.
If you have any questions please contact Pastor Stanton.
All Saint’s Day has long been a day when the church gives thanks for all the saints, the beloved, who have died, especially in the past year. In the coming weeks, we will be asking for photographs of your beloved dead so that we can be surrounded by their witness on All Saint’s Day, Friday, November 1. These pictures can be sent electronically (email@example.com) or brought in. They will be printed as 4X6, so resolution should be such that they can be printed well from what you submitted. If your loved one was a member of our congregation and died this past year, you will receive a letter with a special request.
All Saint’s Day isn’t only about those who have died but also about those who have been newly baptized. If your child was baptized this past year, you also will receive a special request.
Please note, we will continue to use the photos submitted last year, so no need to resend those photos.
The quilters at First Lutheran boxed up 200 quilts in late September for shipment to Lutheran World Relief to be distributed worldwide. Some of the quilts made by the quilters during the previous year were kept here for distribution to local organizations.
You can also assist LWR with shipping the quilts. Give a donation toward shipping at lwr.org/donate/shippingfund.
