Communion Assistants: We are celebrating Holy Communion every Sunday. We would really love to have some more people to serve as communion assistants.

If you are interested in helping out, please contact the church office or Estelle Johnson.

Choir Practice Resumes Thursday, October 4th It's time to start singing so get those pipes warmed up for choir rehearsals which will begin Thursday, October 4th in the Sanctuary at 7p.m. Of course, we at First Lutheran sing in church every Sunday (and sing very well, too), but we love to have our choir sing anthems to help celebrate what God has done for us. All are welcome!

Soup, Soup, Soup………..we are still collecting soup for FISH Food Bank. This will continue through October. Thank you to all those who have donated.

The Rummage Sale this week: October 5-6. Time to start sorting through clothes, books, etc. at home to donate. All proceeds go to worthy charities. Linda Strand is heading it up again.

Central WA Cluster Meeting Sunday, October 14th 3p.m. at Christ Lutheran, Yakima. The ELCA churches in our area (E’burg, Yakima, Goldendale, Toppenish, Sunnyside & Grandview) get together twice yearly to share ideas, maintain friendships and learn together. Our new Eastern WA-ID Director of Evangelical Mission (DEM) Mary Morrow will be with us and a light supper will be served. Let Pastor Dennis know if you are interested in going and you can catch a ride with him if you like.
