Good afternoon!

It has been a LOUD day here at First! We are having our fire alarms checked and inspected (good for safety…bad for mouse ears!) I may have to go into hiding for the rest of the afternoon!

For those of you who attended Worship in the Park and Rally Day yesterday, it was a HUGE success! The worship in our beautiful First Lutheran Park was fantastic and we had the chance to witness two baptisms and the commissioning of our Sunday School teachers!!! What a treat!

Speaking of treats, Marvin was running a delicious cotton candy stand! YUM! We enjoyed lunch served by our wonderful Fellowship committee,  games organized by the Christian Education committee, a duck pond, face-painting…even Pastor Jerry had his face painted! It was a really fun and enthusiastic way to kick-off our brand new Sunday School year!

This Week:

Mary-Martha Circle met this morning at 10:00 in the Fellowship hall to enjoy sewing projects and lunch.

This evening, Monday, September 9th, Monday Night Bible Studies are back! Pastor Bob Smith will be teaching a 2 month series on the Parables of Jesus. It starts at 7:00 PM in the Conference Room.

Wednesday, September 11 we will host Food from the Heart, our weekly free luncheon. This is open to the public and everyone is invited so come on down to First Lutheran and enjoy some food and fellowship. This week, they will be have cranberry roasted chicken! Sounds delicious! Also on Wednesday, following Food from the Heart, join Pastor Jerry in the Parlor to “Parlez” (that’s French for “speak”)! Pastor Jerry will be hosting a time to relax and just chat with him in the Parlor every Wednesday from 1:00 – 2:30 PM. come on in and say hello. I heard there will be coffee and cookies as well!
