The Board of Christian Education would like to thank everyone who helped with this year's Vacation Bible School. A Mighty Fortress VBS received 65 children who celebrated Jesus, the Savior. A very special thank goes to Jerry Vrshek for his many years of set design and building. Every year is better than the last.
The ladies of LWML would like to thank the Quilt Group for all the hard work on the beautiful quilts that will provide warmth and comfort to the people of Albuquerque NM. The ladies also thank the congregation for all the donations to "Gifts From The Heart" to ease the burden of poverty in the Albuquerque area.
The Board of Stewardship is partnering with Morningstar Mission in Joliet for their "Jump On The Bus Program". This mission helps students in need with items they need for the new school year. Items in need are underwear (children and adult sizes), larger (teen) boy and girl backpacks, headphones or earbuds, flash drives, 3 X 5 and 4 X 6 (ruled or unruled) index cards, kleenex, Clorox/disinfecting wipes, and ziploc type bags (gallon, quart and sandwich). If you can provide any of these items, please drop them off in the church narthex between June 10 and July 1. If you have any questions, please call Barb Malm at 815-469-2930
Pray N Crochet will be offered on Wednesday nights this summer for five weeks. If you are interested in learning a new craft we will be starting a new group. We will have a short devotional and then learn a new craft. Each week we will learn a new stitch and a new project. We will meet on June 28 and July 5, 12, 19 and 26 from 6-8 pm at the church. If you want to learn how to crochet contact the church office for more information. You will need to purchase supplies. Phone is 708-479-5600.
Meijer Simply Give Program--Now through June 18th
This program helps local pantries keep their shelves stocked. Our local Meijer store (at Wolf Road & Rt 30) partners with the Frankfort Township Food Pantry. When customers make a $10 donation by scanning the Simply Give card, Meijer will match that donation and give the food pantry Meijer food-only gift cards that the food pantry may use to purchase items most needed.
You may bring a Simply Give card with you to the store (check the Stewardship bulletin board), or ask the cashier for one when you check out. Find out more at: meijercommunity.com
Lutheran Bible Translators – This weekend, Emily Wilson of LBT will give a brief presentation at the end of the Sunday service. She will return on July 1st to present at the Saturday service.
