All Are Welcome!
We had a great visit with the youth from Redeemer Lutheran Church in Indianola, IA.  They prepared a fantastic spaghetti dinner for our God's Closet community, helped Bob pack some Books for Prisoners, and had some great conversations about ministry and community.  

This Week

Persistence in prayer evoked the admiration of Jesus and wins the attention of the Lord when Abraham intercedes for Sodom. The life of the baptized—to be rooted and built up in Christ Jesus the Lord—is to be rooted in prayer. God hears and answers prayer and so strengthens God’s own. “When I called, you answered me; you increased my strength within me.

    We're expecting some hot and sticky weather this Sunday.  We'll meet in the small chapel, with air conditioning, for worship at 10:30.
    Sunday is also the annual church Sox outing!  There are a few extra tickets so contact Rene if you are interested.  They are $10 each.

    We will walk over to the park shortly after worship (about 12:30) or you can meet the group there. 

    - Parking on Sunday is only $10. 
    - Details about "Family Sunday" in the graphic -->
    - Carry in food in a small, clear (see-through) plastic bag.
    - Enter with small, soft-sided bags (no larger than 16" x 16" x 8") that will be searched prior to entering the park.
    - Carry in one sealed plastic bottle of water, one liter or less in size, but no other beverages of any kind.
    - Use small, compact umbrellas. When opened, they may not obstruct the view of other guests. Golf size umbrellas are not permitted into the ballpark.
    Introducing our new MIC Students!
    Malina and Samantha will be joining us for the 2016-2017 school year as Ministry in Context students.  This is a class that students at LSTC take and is an opportunity for students to engage in ministry in a congregational context. Malina and Samantha will be with us on a very part time basis, but you will get to know them on Sunday mornings and through their projects.  Click to read their bios!

    Bible Study!
    Tuesdays, at 7 pm in the sanctuary.  We are reading Acts.
