HTLC/HRLC News, May 17, 2024

Hi, Everybody, and Happy Syttende Mai! (Norwegian Constitution Day – have some krumkake, but trust me, skip the lutefisk):

Tomorrow, Saturday, May 18th, at 7:30pm, Mission Peak Chamber Singers return to Christ the King Lutheran Church.  There will be a pre-concert talk at 6:45pm.  They will be singing Elaine Hagenberg’s choral masterpiece “Illuminare”, and songs from the mountains of Morocco performed by guest artist Fattah Abou.  Ticket Prices: $15 to $45.  For more information, please see their  Tickets will also be available for purchase at the door.  It’s going to be a wonderful experience in a transformed space.

So much is happening this Sunday, May 19.  It’s the Day of Pentecost – WEAR RED!  (not that I’m dictating fashion, it’s just traditional to wear red on what some consider to be the birthday of the church [and it doesn’t even look a day over 1,990 {more or less}]).  After the service, there will be a Youth Bake Sale to benefit ELCA Good Gifts (  Help the kids to get chicks, to get their goat, or even to have a cow.  Be a pig – it’s for a good cause!  There’s also a Spaghetti Feed Meeting after the service.  It takes a lot of volunteers to put on this fundraiser.  Find out how you can help make it a stravaganza straordinario.  There’s even a Bell Choir Rehearsal at 11:30 am, plus it’s Fill the Food Barrel Sunday.  But wait!  If you act now, you also get an HTLC Council Meeting at noon!  So much value all in one Sunday – it’s no wonder they call the time after Pentecost “Ordinary Time!”
