Every family is encouraged to give an extra offering of $70 in remembrance of our Lord’s blessing these past 70 years. Please use the special envelop from your box of offering envelopes which is marked “70th Anniversary Gift.” (It makes it easier for those who count the offering to track this special donation, if you use that envelop.)

Come, Join the Choir! We will begin rehearsals on Wednesday, September 13, at 7:30. The rehearsals normally run until 9:00 p.m. We prepare special anthems and learn liturgical singing. We will be working on a hymn written by Martin Luther for Reformation. Or if you prefer to only sing occasionally, come and join us closer to the big feast days, such as Christmas or Easter. It’s a wonderful way to express your faith and enthusiasm for sharing the Gospel of our Lord Jesus! See you there! For more information, talk to Laurie or any other choir member.
