October 17th we will be having an ELCA Youth Gathering Meeting with pizza to discuss the upcoming trip to Minneapolis next year. Amy Kueper has generously volunteered to chaperone and plan the trip. It’s a great opportunity for high schoolers to renew their Christian roots. Plan on attending!!
There will be a benefit for Grace Catlin, to help with health-related expenses. It will be Sunday, October 24th after service at 11 a.m.-2 p.m. We have a sign-up sheet in the lobby for people wishing to donate bars for the event. Bars need to be dropped off by 9:30 a.m. that morning. Any questions, please contact Judy Salzwedel.
Our October Special Offering goes to the Western Iowa Synod. We are just a small part of a much larger church of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA). The branch we belong to is a partner with 65 other churches in the area. Together, we make a huge difference in global missions and world hunger, Safe Water in Tanzania, Igumbilo Girl’s School of Chile, and local organizations like Lutheran Services of Iowa and donations to seminary students.
Our church collected $942.94 for Cherish Center!! Your gift will help young moms be loved and nurtured at Cherish House. Thanks for giving so generously!!!
