Thank you, to all who helped me last Sunday at church when I fell. I thank everyone for the prayers and calls, they are greatly appreciated. I am hoping to come home on Thursday the 18th and be back with my church family as soon as I can. Bev Gruber

Annual Meeting of First Lutheran Church: Sunday, Jan 28th

Our youth will be serving their fabulous baked potato bar. 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.)

A budget forum will be held on Sun. Jan 21 at 9am in the fellowship hall. If you have questions or input about the budget, that is the time.

ASSEMBLY PLANNING MEETING SUNDAY, JANUARY 21ST Please plan to attend the next 2018 Synod Assembly Planning Meeting on Sunday, January 21st at 6:30pm, Christ Lutheran Church, 5606 W.
