Thank you, to Mary Johnson for preaching today.

Flowers for today are provided by Estelle & Sheila Johnson in memory of Melina and Randy.

Pastor Dennis will be on vacation July 18th through August 14th. In an emergency please contact Pastor Mary Johnson at 925-6802 or 607-9130.

Matthew Erickson, Pat Erickson’s grandson, will be ordained here on Saturday, August 11th. Bishop Martin Wells will be here along with other Pastors and friends of Matthew. (Dennis will be here.) The congregation is cordially invited. The worship service (holy communion) will be late morning or early afternoon. Matthew’s family will take care of the food. Matthew has been called to serve as pastor of Calvary Lutheran in Post Falls, Idaho.

Youth Families: Save the Date: On Sunday, August 12, we’ll have a very important Event Planning Meeting after worship. As Joe transitions out of the Youth Director position, we need to plan for the 2012–2013 Youth Program. If you have a child in Youth (or would like to be involved with the Youth program), please plan on attending. Thanks.

Girls’ Bible Study: This summer, Amanda is hosting a bi-weekly, evening bible study for Youth girls at her apartment. Only two remain, so if you haven’t come yet, be sure to come August 11, 6:30-8:00 p.m.. This is open to all Youth girls (including our newest Youth, those students now completing fifth grade). For more information, please check with Joe or Amanda.

Open Gym and Office Hours: Every-other Mondays Joe will keep office hours in the fellowship hall. Youth are invited to stop in to use the gym or chat. 10:00 a.m – 12:00 p.m. (Three remaining: 7/30, 8/13, 8/27).

Winegar’s Wednesdays: Joe and all interested Youth will camp out at the University Way Winegar’s from 2:00–3:00 p.m. This is a little time for Youth to talk, pray, read together . . . and have ice cream. If you missed the first two, don’t worry; there are still three more — 8/1, 8/15, 8/29. Come for them all, or just whenever you’re able.

Waterpark Trip: On Tuesday, August 21, the Youth will provide Joe with his worst nightmare: a trip to a watermark. Join us as we travel to the Moses Lake watermark, leaving FLC at 9:00 and returning between 3:30 and 4:00 p.m.). To guarantee a space (so we can get a group discount) RSVP via e-mail, sign-up sheet (on the gym door), or through Facebook. (More details — such as prices — to come.) (Drivers and chaperones needed.)

Facebook and Event Updates: Although the Youth Department sends out e-mails from time-to-time, our usual way of communicating is with the Facebook page. Remember that you don’t necessarily need to be on Facebook to use that page. Just go to our address — www.facebook.com/flcyouth — and keep updated on the latest news and events. And, if you “Like” us, you can receive automatic updates and join events.

Youth Updates: Do you want Youth updates through e-mail? If so, please e-mail Joe at flcyouth.eburg@gmail.com to be included on our news and events e-mail list. You can also watch the bulletin, the FLC web site, the Youth Facebook page, and the FLARE for more information.

Summer Youth Schedule: Summer’s half-way over, but there are still opportunities for meeting together, worshiping God in fellowship, discipleship, and service. Youth and volunteers are needed throughout the summer to continue the work (and play) God has for us. Please pick up a copy of the summer schedule from the “kid’s table” outside the church office or request a PDF copy (flcyouth.eburg@gmail.com).
