First Lutheran's Got Talent!
First Lutheran has the most amazingly talented people in our congregation. The reality is that you are needed to showcase that talent in our worship services. Get yourselves ready to provide something to show your talent and how you like to share it “to the Glory of God”. Let’s fill the remaining Sundays of summer with some really good and special things. You are your own best creators so get those thinking caps on and talk to each other and let Marilee know what you would like to do and when. Help is provided where needed. Good luck.
PS. No prizes....just a few extra “angel wings” in heaven!!!!
Adult Expression of Faith Project
What we’re looking for is for you to tell a part of your faith story or demonstrate a part of what you believe through some form of expression. This could be in written word, in an artistic form like painting, photography or other media. You could express your faith with a poem, even a poem someone else has written that articulates your feelings. This does not need to be a large or fancy project, but if you want to go all out you can. This is about you, sharing what God has done in your life and what that means to you in a genuine and caring way.
It is my hope to present these as a church-wide expression of faith on display for the church and the confirmands on July 27th. In order to get the display up by that time, we will need you to submit your expression by Friday, July 18th. You can bring it into the church during service or during the week.
If you have any questions please contact Vicar Jeremy at the church or at email@example.com.

You know you have always wanted to try to ring those bells. Here is your chance to enlist in a couple short camps. There will be Two bootcamps in August for you to dip your toes into the water to explore what bells are about.
Boot Camp #1 - Thursday, August 14 (Note corrected date) from 5:00 - 8:00 pm. Lots of “How to’s” in this camp. How to - to ring a bell, stop the sound, read music, play fast, play slow, play rhythms. This session will be fast paced and so much fun. It is a No miss event.
Boot Camp #2 - Thursday, August 21 (Note corrected date) from 5:00 - 8:00 pm. More How to’s - How to play those pesky markings that seem to be just for handbell players. Learn how they make the music more fun to ring and interesting to hear.
Registration required: e-mail email@example.com or call 651-388-9311, ext.19 to register. Open to upper elementary students through adults.

We, the congregation of First Lutheran Church, proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ through Word and Sacrament, calling people to new life and discipleship. We grow in faith, hope and love as a community of believers through worship, prayer and study. We serve people in need by sharing God's love in our community and throughout the world.
We are part of God’s unfolding plan. When we gather for worship, we connect with believers everywhere. When we study the Bible or hear God’s word in worship, we are drawn more deeply into God’s own saving story.
