WELCOME!! We are glad that you have joined us this morning as we lift up our hearts and voices in response to God’s great gift of forgiveness and life in Christ Jesus. If you are a visitor, please sign our guest book and introduce yourself to Pastor Les Wolfgram and Pastor Justin Woodside.

THE HUMAN CARE COMMITTEE has selected The Women’s Care Center as the recipient for the fourth quarter.   We thank God for the precious gift of life from conception to natural death even as we pray for those who help others to honor the sanctity of life.

WE HAVE COFFEE AND TREATS between services. Because of covid, we are having prepackaged treats. Feel free to buy treats to share for adults. Sunday school is doing their own. Any questions : Cathy Sitter-400-5545, Pam Dever -391-6332. Thanks, Stewardship

SPREADING THE WORDThere is a pressing need for Spanish language catechisms for the Latin American Lutheran Mission in Laredo, TX. They are starting 39 new missions and would like 10 catechisms for each new start. We were able to send 50 already and we are now collecting donations for 340 more at a cost of about $3400, of which we have collected about a $1000. If you can help label your gift LALM/Laredo.

PLANS ARE COMING TOGETHER for the 12’ X 16’ storage shed that will be built by Grayson Lawyer as his Eagle Scout project. Donations to this effort are greatly appreciated. The cement slab has been poured and walls are beginning to go up.

WE LOOK FORWARD TO hosting the director of the Women’s Care Center during the education hour on October 18.  She will fill us in on the amazing work they do to care for expectant mothers.  Please join us.
