FISH Dinner Service. It’s time to pass the torch! For the past several years Pastor Dennis has so graciously served as “chief cook and bottle washer” for the Saturday FISH dinners that First Lutheran has prepared, served and cleaned up. He accepted the responsibility of scheduling the Saturday date, picking up the food, finding out what the menu would be, lining up volunteers and doing whatever else needed to be done to keep this Christian outreach going. Many thanks for all the months he has done this. The Outreach ministry is now asking for volunteers who will each sign up for one Saturday per month and be willing to coordinate (with help) the FISH dinner for that month. Please contact Patty Akers at , or Fred or Jean Cutlip at for more information.

The beautiful Last Supper needlepoint in the Fellowship Hall (formerly in the Chapel) was made by Diane Malinski’s Mother. Diane has given it to First Lutheran Church. Thank you! It’s beautiful!

Lutherhaven Ministries: Hike, swim, crafts, sing, challenge course, archery, explore, canoe, campout, Bible encounters, new friends, campfires… sounds like fun, doesn’t it? For 70 years tens of thousands of campers have attended Lutherhaven on beautiful Lake Coeur d’ Alene. Weekly camps this summer are offered starting June 19 for grades 3-12 (five nights) and grades 1-2 (two nights). Pick up a brochure on the kids’ table in the fellowship hall, find your camp program and register online. Lutherhaven offers reduced pricing (see the brochure) and First Lutheran offers “Camperships” to each camper to help defray the cost. In addition, Lutherhaven offers an early registration discount of $20 if paid by April 1. For more info about FLC Camperships, please contact Carla Bergman.
