Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
As we come to the end of another summer we look forward to the beginning of a new year in Christian Education. Janet Parsons has put up a sign-up sheet for Sunday School teachers. At the end of the month we will kick off things with Rally Day and our annual Sunday School picnic at Dan Nicholas Park. Confirmation classes will also begin again soon. As children eagerly(?) await the start of a new school year we will again have a blessing of the book bags this month before school starts.
August is also a month to look outward to the larger work of the Church. The tenth is the deadline to sign up to work on the Thrivent/Habitat project in the ongoing effort to recover from Hurricane Katrina. If you are interested you can call toll free 866-375-8211. Then on August twelfth we welcome Pastor Schmeelcke, a retired Lutheran minister. He will share with us the ministry of Food for the Poor during his sermon as well as being available during Sunday School to discuss their work. This group focuses on the poorest of the poor in sixteen nations throughout Central America and the Caribbean.
