Hi, everyone, I’m back! Hope you enjoyed your vacation from me. Thanks to all who helped out while the custodian and I were gone.
This Sunday is September 4th, 16th Sunday after Pentecost and Nacho Name Tag Sunday. Worship Service will be at 10AM, 21st Century Traditional style. There will be a Stewards of God’s Love meeting after service.
This coming week’s office hours will be almost back to normal (Mon – Fri, 10 – 2) except for Monday, Labor Day, when the office is closed. (I know, I haven’t actually been laboring for the past few weeks, but I’m taking it anyway!)
Game Night is tonight (Sept. 2nd). A lot of people are travelling this weekend, so those who aren’t please come! It’s at 6:30 in the Activity Room. Bring a game or dish to share if you wish. (I’m having church food withdrawals)
Rally Day is coming up next Sunday, September 11th. We return to our two-service schedule (8:45 and 11:00), Sunday School and Adult Forum start up again (between services), it’s the ELCA’s “God’s Work Our Hands” day (wear your T-shirts), it will be Scrip Sunday, and we will have the Blessing of the Backpacks during services (bring backpacks, briefcases, etc.). Church vacation is over!
Choir, Instrumental Group, and Praise Band rehearsals are starting up again on Wednesday evenings. If you play (or have played) an instrument or love to sing, please join. Terri and I are not the cruel tyrants we seem – ask any performing member (and they’d better give the right answer, or else!).
R & R Circle will be having a meeting with a luncheon following on Wednesday, Sept. 14th at 10:30 AM. I’ll volunteer to dispose of any leftovers.
Thrivent is sponsoring a Free Document Shredding event at Christ the King Lutheran Church, 1301 Mowry Ave, Fremont. It will be on Saturday, September 24 from 9 AM to 1 PM. A flyer with more details about what is acceptable for shredding is available on the Media Table. Time to go through those piles of “miscellaneous important papers” that have accumulated on every available horizontal surface in your home (or is that just me?).
