Rally Sunday is September 7th!
All are welcome to come celebrate!
Immediately following the 8:30 service (9:30 am), we’re kicking off this year’s Sunday School with a fun hour of activities surrounding our theme and the ELCA’s tagline, “GOD’S WORK. OUR HANDS”. This hour will provide an opportunity for the children to meet their Sunday School teachers, for families to experience “Sunday School” together, and for all youth and adults to join in the fun by giving a helping hand and interacting with the Sunday School families. (You can download the registration form under DOWNLOADABLE FORMS ON THE MENU BAR.)
SPARK STORY BIBLES – The 3-year-olds will receive their Bibles on Rally Sunday during the 8:30 service. Our hope is that all families who have a 3-year-old, or a child younger than 3rd grade that is attending Sunday school for the first time, will attend this service, so that we may place God’s Word directly into their hands.
HELP SUPPORT PAWS 2 THINK – We will hold a pet food drive beginning on Rally Sunday, September 7, through October 5 when we celebrate “Blessing of the Animals.”
Pet food is desperately needed to help local pets in need. NEEDED: Dog food – any size bag, medium to good quality; and cat food – dry, small to medium bags; and canned dog and cat food. Cat litter also needed (prefer scoopable). Donations may be placed in the designated bin located in the Gathering area.
