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.

Financial Giving Statements – The giving statement for the first half of 2014 are ready to be picked up in the fellowship hall. If you have an email address on file in the church office your statement was emailed to you on July 4. If you cannot find your statement see James Stolte or leave a note in the church office.

F.I.S.H. News: FISH continues to feed the families in the Ellensburg community; over 1,500 individuals were provided with 23 tons of nutritious food in May. In addition, almost 600 people ate hot meals, provided by our dedicated staff of volunteers and professionals. And the Summer Nutrition Program is in full swing, providing nutritious lunches to school kids at four different locations. At the last Board Meeting, however, our treasurer reported that contributions and our cash balance have been falling off. And despite the gradually improving national economy, the demand for food is still increasing. The contributions of our member churches and individuals in the parishes are important to our efforts and directly support the task of feeding the hungry and helping the homeless. Please consider a contribution, either directly to FISH or via FLC.

While Pastor Dennis is on vacation Pastor Ginny Krekling will cover any pastoral emergencies July 21-August 9. Pastor Mary Johnson will handle emergencies August 10-17. Please contact the office at 925-2844, to be put in contact with either Ginny or Mary.
