Flowers for today are provided by Sheila Johnson in honor of her granddaughter Bailey's 10th birthday.

Ron Koester died January 8th at home in Kent after a brief illness. Services for Ron will be at a later date. Ron was 86 years old, we give thanks for his good life and commend him to God’s everlasting care.

Budget Forum January 22nd 9a.m. Our budget forum will be Sunday, January 22nd in the fellowship hall. If you have questions or input about the church budget, please come to the 9am budget forum on the 22nd. (Don’t wait until the annual meeting.)

Annual Meeting of First Lutheran Church: Sunday, Jan 29th. Our youth will be serving their fabulous baked potato bar, so you won’t go hungry. Immediately after lunch we will have our annual meeting, the main purpose of which is to pass an annual budget and elect church council members. So we need all voting members to stay for a brief meeting. (If you are an adult or a confirmed youth, you are a voting member.)

If anyone is interested in helping at the Cold Weather Shelter, you can signup online at http://signup.com/go/JM7XYX, you will need to set up an account or login using Facebook.

Please sign up to bring cookies or other refreshments for fellowship time after the service. There are lots of empty dates! The sign-up is on the kitchen door. Thank you!

Nursery Help Needed: Please consider signing up to occasionally help out in our nursery during the service if and when we have children up to age 4 who do not remain in the service. See the sign up next to the youth bulletin board in the fellowship hall and choose a Sunday. Thank you!

Youth Activities

Thank you all for the prayers for our family and the help I have been given for Youth Activities. It's all very appreciated!

Coming soon: Annual Potato Bar Fundraiser! I need more Youth to check out the board and sign up for a food item to bring. All potatoes must be at the church by the morning of Saturday, Jan 28th. This fundraiser will go towards our rock wall climbing event in March and Laser Tag event in May. Our goal is to raise $600 (if not more)!! Please also stick around after church to help serve. Afterwards we are having our silly gift exchange/hot cocoa party. Check out the Youth Board for details!

Saturday, Jan 28 - come in and help scrub potatoes at 10 a.m.!

Sunday, Jan 29 - meet in the kitchen and serve potatoes after service!
