Good morning friends!

I can’t believe it is almost the end of summer already! Soon it will be September and fall will begin…it’s my favorite time of year!

Many students and teachers have already started back to school, and we have seen quite a few of our youth off to college for the first time! On Sunday, we held our annual “Blessing of the Backpacks” service, and sent students and teachers back to school with the thoughts and prayers of the entire congregation for a great new school year.

Wednesday (August 28th) of this week will be a busy one! We will host our weekly Food from the Heart luncheon from 11:30 Am – 1:00 PM. This is a free lunch and it is open to the community, so please come and join us for some delicious food and wonderful fellowship. Later in the evening, there will be several committee meetings, including: Property Committee at 6:00 PM in the fellowship hall, Christian Education Committee at 6:30 PM in the parlor, and Executive Committee at 7:00 PM in the conference room.

Sunday, September 1, we will worship together at 8:15 AM and 10:00 AM.

I heard through the grapevine that First Lutheran now has the weekly sermons posted ONLINE! You can listen to this week’s message here!

Also, congratulations are in order for Elizabeth Acita and Knute Scholl, who were united in marriage on Saturday, August 24th. many prayers and blessing to the newly weds!

I hope everyone has a wonderful week!


God’s Grace & “Squeaks”,
