Stewardship Stu here with a question. What have you learned about yourself this summer? Did the continuing turmoil in the Middle East force you to think about what you support? Did continued shootings and outrageous behavior in our own country force you to think about what we endorse? How does walking with the New York Times under one arm and the Bible under the other effect your interpretation of Christianity? It's never too late to choose which side to be on... and that decision is a matter of stewardship. It's all up to you. What are your priorities? What will you support? What are you telling your children? In advance I praise you for the example you are setting. Know that you are loved. See you in Church. Stu.

Sound – Would you like to help people hear the church service? Do you like to push buttons and move levers up and down? We are looking for people to operate the sound system. If you are interested or have questions see James Stolte or leave your name in the church office. Training will be provided. High school youth are encouraged to think about it.

Help those affected by the NW fires: After consultation with Lutheran Disaster Response, our synod has opened a restricted account at ELCA Region 1 where folks and congregations can send checks to support those who have been devastated. As funds come in, the Region 1 office will be in touch with the local congregation/local contact where they know the agencies working for relief and the local needs. We will also partner up with Catholic Charities, Red Cross, and the Salvation Army. Kittitas County of Thrivent will match funds given up to $500. Please mark your donations as “NW Fires.”

Joanne Pugh has a new address: 802 E. Mt View #238

My name is Alec Keith, I am a CWU student that has been regularly attending services during the school year, and occasionally play flute for the services as well. I am finishing up my B.A. degree in music this coming fall. Unfortunately, I have been having a very difficult time finding a place to live for Sept. through Dec. only, and was wondering if there is anyone in the congregation that has or knows a place that I can rent for Fall quarter only. Thank you. Please contact the church office with any information.
