Dear First Lutheran Family,
THANK YOU for all your warm thoughts and prayers for my recovery. It meant a lot to Trish and I to know we had so many prayers and well-wishes in our corner. My recovery is on track and I look forward to being back to 100% soon.
With thanks, Justin Sharp
NEEDED: The Ministry Center is in need of clean, empty 1/2 gallon containers.
At this moment we plan to begin confirmation studies again on Wednesday, September 16th at 2:00 pm – but, this could change as school changes and other factors affect us. But, in looking forward we will invite all the students in 6th thru 9thgrades to join us for confirmation instruction. We’ll meet in the Fireside Room so students can socially distance and have access to the large screen TV. As students get ready for confirmation classes I’d like to ask the students to read one of the gospels – either Matthew, Luke, or John (not Mark) – before coming to class in September.
Secondly, we are anticipating the Rite of Confirmation to be celebrated on Sunday, January 10, 2021, for those students in the 8th and 9thgrades.
OPPORTUNITY TO HELP OUR YOUTH WITH A FUNDRAISING PROJECT!!
Our congregations’ youth will be volunteering to work Thelma’s drive thru meal on Wednesday, August 26th, to raise money towards their ELCA Youth Gathering trip to Minneapolis, MN in June 2021. Although we have several youth and their families volunteering their time, we could still use more volunteers. If you would be willing to help dish up food, bag meals, deliver food to vehicles, sell tickets, take tickets, direct traffic; we’d love to have you help! The volunteering time is from 2-7 pm, but even if you can help part of that time we’d appreciate it. If you are willing to volunteer that day, please contact Ann Aulwes 641-203-6577.
