Special Offering for FISH Food Bank for the month of August was $509 and 63 pounds of food.

Sadly, because of the corona virus continuing to disrupt our lives, we will not be having choir until at least the beginning of 2021. We will continue to have special music, hopefully every week-Tor is taking on that responsibility as of October. If you would like to help out-sing, play an instrument, whatever, please let Tor know. Thank you in advance. 607-0217 or

Women’s Bible Study on Tuesdays, 1:30 p.m. at FLC. If you have any questions please contact Renee Merten.

Audio Visual Update: You may of heard the news we are looking to go online with our worship services. We are close to reaching this goal, we have $7,600 already in our account, but we need to get to $12,000. All money will go to purchasing the audio visual equipment and necessary cords/cables. If you would like to give to this project for a limited time, to help us reach our goal we would love your support. Please mark your giving “AV Interest”. Thank you to Doug Fessler for heading up our project!

It is my greatest disappointment to cancel the women’s annual rummage sale, usually held in early October. There are several reasons: closed rooms, people coming in from outside and that many who help me are in the high risk category (age and health issues) of which I am included. Instead of forgetting the charities and our own church’s emergency fund, I would like to set up a money box in the office. You can contribute directly or mail in a check to the office and the money will be deposited into the box. Here is a list of charities we have given to in the past. If you would like to give to a specific one please put your donation in an envelope with the name. First Lutheran Emergency Funds, Hospice Friends, Children’s Advocacy, FISH, Spirit TRC, Trellis Center, Habitat for Humanity, Lutheran World Relief, Aspen, FLC Weekend Nutrition. Please consider donating generously to these charities. It’s been a difficult time for all of us and it breaks my heart not to be able to do this rummage sale this year. Stay safe everyone and I look forward to being able to worship and plan for our rummage sale next year. God Bless, Linda Strand
