CONCRETE PROJECT TO BEGIN AT FIRST LUTHERAN
First Lutheran is delaying the beginning of worship because the cement work will begin in the church parking lot sometime around June 1. Once the cement is poured and finished, it cannot be driven on for at least a week.
THE OLD CONCRETE BUMPERS IN THE PARKING LOT ARE FREE TO THE MEMBERS!! You can take as many as you want – first come, first served. They need to be gone by June 1!!
REMEMBER: Every Sunday, at 10:30 am, you can listen to the weekly sermon and prayers from First Lutheran Church and Christ the Servant Lutheran Church on KIIC Radio – 96.7 FM out of Albia, IA. This broadcast will be an ongoing ministry of the two congregations every Sunday at 10:30 am.
