Faith Lutheran News
As we approach the ending of summer, some of our thoughts turn to school, with all that entails. We want to get our youth off to a proper start for the new school year, so, during the 9:00 am worship on Sunday, August 28, we will invite all of our students, from pre-school through college, to come forward with their book bags for a BLESSING OF THE BACKPACKS. We will send them off to school with prayer!

Pastor Bodnyk is trying to see how effective this website is for getting news out to people. So, if you read this little note, please respond to mbodn@aol.com and let him know.'

There is a Flamingo poster on the Sunday School bulletin board in the hallway. We are looking for people to post sightings of LIVE Flamingos that you see during the summer. So far, I haven't seen any postings. Can you help us out? Send me an e-mail and I can post that! I saw some the other week, but they were kids pretending to be flamingos!'

Our offerings on Sunday, July 24 totaled $2794.50. We need $6517 each week for our budgeted expenses. Attendance last week was 115! So far this year, we have collected $8243 towards our 2016 goal of $25000 for the Roof Replacement Account.

It's been an exciting week, but the end is fast approaching...Vacation Bible School is almost over for Summer 2016. Thanks, parents, for entrusting your children with us for this week of Bible learning and fun!

All that is left ...after tonight... is the VBS presentation on Sunday at 9:00 am, followed by the fun and games and food of our Luau. Come to church dressed in your beachy clothes, perhaps bring a covered dish, and join us for the post-service fun! Don't forget that Sunday FB check-in!

We are looking for you at worship this coming Sunday, July 31:
Worship at 9:00 am; Holy Communion by intinction...the "old" way..

After worship, we have our VBS LUAU (see above).No reservations necessary!

Don't forget to check in on FB and let people know where YOU ARE on Sunday mornings!'

If, after VBS, you are looking for another summer activity for the youth, look into the Camp Rhythmo program for the next two weeks --Aug 1-12--, for youth K thru 6 grade. For the 3,4, and 5s, there is the one-week DANCING THROUGH THE FAIRY TALES! Interested? Look at www.camprhythmo.com or call Michael Bodnyk at 866-430-0810.

On Sunday, August 14, we will begin our time together a few minutes early with a "hymn sing." We want to give people the opportunity to sing their "old favorites" that we don't sing often. There is a notebook in the narthex (lobby) for you to give us your suggestions!
