TIME FOR PICTORIAL

Thank you to the ladies who have volunteered to come in and answer the phones for our secretary. It is much appreciated!
LET THE SPIRIT MOVE YOU!
Looking for a way to challenge both your soul and your soles? Transport yourself to church on June 23rd (next week) by pedal power or putting your best foot forward. Give walking or biking to church a try—you may enjoy it so much, you do it every week! Sponsored by Blue Zone Project.
MONDAY NIGHT QUILTERS
There will be no Monday night quilting through the summer; we will resume in September.
WOODEN PLAYGROUND EQUIPMENT
It has recently come to our attention that the tower/slide piece of playground equipment in our courtyard does not meet safety regulations. We would like to have it removed as soon as possible, by July 6th. If anyone is interested in using this piece for their own use, please contact the church office 295-3518. You will be required to dismantle it and haul it away on your own.
NEW QUILTING GROUP
Start‘em Young Quilters will meet on Wednesday mornings from 9-11:30 am in the basement Fellowship Hall. This group is for our youth, 5th grade and up, to learn how to sew, expand their knowledge and what it means to sew a quilt for someone in need. You will be constructing quilts that will be sent to the Oklahoma tornado victims. Adults who are interested in sewing are also welcome to attend. This group will meet through Aug. 14th, however, you will not meet on July 3rd or 10th due to waxing in the basement. If you have any questions, please contact Barb Bitterman 295-2183.

BUILDING HEALTHY FAMILIES
Did You Know: It’s been said the phrase, “Fear not”, or something akin to it, is repeated 365 times in the Bible. That is one “fear not” for every day of the year! Whether or not this is actually true, it is a great reminder to put our burdens on the Lord. He can handle them. So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. (Isaiah 41: 9-11) Lutheran Family Service of Iowa 1-800-622-7285
I wish to thank everyone that sent me cards and came to help me celebrate my 90th birthday. Also, to Pastor Turner for the prayer in church for the Lord’s blessings for my many years.
