A huge thank you to Carla and everyone who helped make Vacation Bible School happen last week.

Thank you from Bill & Melva Schmidt for all the prayers during Bill’s recent surgery and recovery.

Food Donations for FISH in July: We're doing this differently in July! Everyone - bring CARROTS. (All other items still accepted, of course!) Thanks!

Can you help us mow the lawn? A sign-up sheet is on the bulletin board in the fellowship hall (next to the flower chart) to mow the church lawn. The church has all the equipment needed. The grass clippings can go in the dumpster. There are lots of open weeks between now and September (only 3 people have signed up so far). Can you take 1 week or more? See Mike Luvera or James Stolte to find out how to get into the shed and dumpster or if you would like more information.

Our first book is the short, entertaining, and thought-provoking C.S. Lewis classic, The Great Divorce (a very interesting look at Heaven and Hell). Group members will nominate and select July's book at tonight's meeting.

High School Home Study: 7/7 7:00–8:00 We've already had two fantastic studies in Paul's first letter to the Corinthians. We'll have our next study on Sunday, July 7 at 7:00–8:00 p.m. at Jim and Sue Ayers' house (101 E 9th Ave) All upcoming, current, and recently graduated high school students are invited to an hour in Bible study. If you're a HS Youth, bring your Bible and join us. Upcoming HSHS meetings: 7:00–8:00 p.m. on Sunday evenings, July 7, 21, August 11, and 18.

Mariners Trip: 7/24 9:00–7:00. Seattle. We have purchased 18 tickets for this trip, and they're going fast. $15 contribution per ticket (except drivers and chaperones). Row 182 (Bleachers) Row 1, Seats 1–18. Sign up is on a first-come-first-served basis on the gym door or the FLC web site.

Boulder Cave Hike: 7/9 9:30–4:00. Past Naches. If you've never spent a hot July day keeping cool in a giant bat cave, you must take this trip. Boulder Cave is a great hike and picnic spot just past Naches. We'll need a few drivers and plenty of Youth. It's a short 1 mile hike to the cave. Bring lunch, water, and flashlights.

Summer Lunch Program: 11:00–1:00 Kiwanis/Mt. View Park Once again, FLC will join forces with FISH and Chestnut Street Baptist to serve community children. The Summer Lunch Program offers nutritious and tasty meals to local residents in the city parks. We need people to help distribute food and lead games. Please consider being a part of this amazing ministry. Even if you can't help all week, come for a day.

Lutherhaven Summer Camp. Time to sign up for a great week on Lake Coeur D’Alene. First Lutheran is giving a $150 Campership to any child connected to our church who wants to go. Registration forms are on the Kids Table or you can go online to lutheranhaven.com
