WORSHIP THIS SUNDAY – July 12

OUTDOOR WORSHIP NEXT SUNDAY, JULY 19, AT FIRST LUTHERAN:
First Lutheran will celebrate another Outdoor Worship Service with Holy Communion on the West side of the church – Sunday, July 19th, at 9:00 AM. Bring your lawn chairs and join us for a refreshing worship service in the “cool” morning air.
ALSO, WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK ALL OF YOU for your faithful stewardship as we deal with the impact of the Covid-19 virus. Your weekly offerings have been inspiring; you continue to bring your weekly gifts for the Lord’s work to the Sunday worship service, mail your offerings to the church, or (as some have done) drop off your contributions with Wendy in the church office. Thank you for your gracious stewardship! Such faithfulness is greatly appreciated.
Our financial gifts enable the congregations of First and Christ the Servant to be God’s living presence in Chariton and Corydon. So, let us continue to rejoice in the blessings of Almighty God, for the “fields are ready” and God is calling for us to go forward.
A BIG THANK YOU to all my friends and relatives for the birthday cards, e-mails, calls, and gifts. Receiving these thoughts for my 80th birthday was great. God bless you all.
I HAVE HAD MANY BLESSINGS during my lifetime and the prayers, cards, and phone calls following my surgery were one of them. THANK YOU to everyone. God is good!
I WANT TO THANK EVERYONE for the cards, flowers, and gifts I received on my 90th birthday. I am blessed with a loving family, a caring church family, and many friends. Beverly Johnson

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.
