  • Opening Service: The congregation is cordially invited to our Lutheran Elementary School opening service. It takes place on Tuesday, September 2 at 6:00 P.M. Following the service, we will have an ice-cream social. Please join us!
  • Bible Classes Begin: Fall Bible classes are beginning in the next weeks. Sunday Morning Bible Class and Sunday School begin next week, September 7. Midweek Bible Class begins on Wednesday, September 10. Again, there will be a morning class at 9 A.M. and an evening class at 6:30 P.M. Pastor Behnken will lead us in a study called “Roadmaps to Bible Reading.” Participants will have the opportunity to read portions of the New Testament at home. Then, after a brief overview and introduction to the material, the class will have the opportunity to ask their questions from their reading. The elders also have asked Pam Krueger to teach a Women’s Bible Class. That begins Sunday evenings on October 5 at 6:30 P.M. Look for more information about this opportunity soon.
  • Choir to Begin: There will be an informational meeting for anyone interested in singing in the adult choir this year. This brief meeting will take place following the second service next Sunday, September 7 right before the picnic. You don’t have to have an extensive singing background to be an excellent addition for the choir. Come and sing your praises to the Lord Most High!
