Call Committee Progress
The Call Committee is excited to report that we have files from the Bishop’s office for two pastoral candidates! So far, it looks like both of these people could fit our congregation nicely. We plan to do initial online interviews with them immediately after the Labor Day weekend. 

We will keep the congregation updated as things unfold. In the interim, please feel free to ask members of the committee about our progress.

Choir Practice:
Practice continues on Mondays at 6:30 p.m. throughout the year.
Please join us for another season of singing; ALL are welcome!!

Pastor’s Note:
As we prepare for God's Work Our Hands this Sunday (please sign up at link in this newsletter or in Tuesday night's email) let us be reminded that this is an opportunity to celebrate who we are as the ELCA - one Church, freed in Christ, to love and serve our neighbor.  This is our way of life:  freed in Christ we are freed by grace to live faithfully, witness boldly, and serve joyfully!  Service activities offer us an opportunity to explore one of our most basic convictions as Lutherans:  All of Life in Jesus  - every act of service, in every daily calling, in every corner of life - flows freely from a living, daring confidence in God's grace.

This is the 6th year the ELCA has had this annual God's Work Our Hands Sunday. But many churches enjoy it so much, they take up additional days during the year to provide service to others, inviting their ecumenical brothers and sister in Christ to join them. The GWOH Sunday has quickly become an anticipated way to be "church together" and "church for the sake of the world".  We are a church that boldly does God's work of restoring and reconciling our communities. This is work you do every day - showing love to your neighbors and helping  make your community a better place, for all.

Blessings and good times for all!
Pastor Teri

P.S. For those of you who like to write letters to to our congress persons to advocate for change in our nation for the benefit of others (or add on to pre-written letters), these letters will be available for your use as well - provided by the ELCA.
