ANNUAL NALC CONVOCATION The annual Convocation of the North American Lutheran Church will be August 9 – 11 at the Sheraton Music City Hotel, Nashville, TN. We are allowed one voting delegate to the Convocation. This is an excellent opportunity to hear of many of the activities of the NALC and to participate in the NALC on a national level. It is an inspiring opportunity to hear of the Lord’s work through the NALC. If you are interested in being a delegate please contact Pastor Oman.
PARKING LOT FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN The congregation voted to resurface the parking lot west of the facility. We have a fundraising campaign going to defray the cost of resurfacing. Targeted contributions will be: to donate a parking space for $750, to donate half a parking space for $375, or whatever someone may want to give toward the resurfacing, and any amount is appreciated. The contributions are donations toward the parking lot, not buying a reserved space. Thank you for your contributions toward resurfacing the parking lot.
WHAT MORMONS REALLY BELIEVE DISCUSSED AT LIFETREE CAFÉ The beliefs and practices of the Mormon faith will be explored at Lifetree Café on Thursday, May 24 at 12:30 p.m. at the Candlewood Pool House. The program- titled “Mormons: Christian? Cult? What do they really believe?”- includes a filmed interview with someone who has left the Mormon church and also someone who has joined it. In addition, a filmed interview with a theology professor will be shown and discussed. “We’ll discuss what Mormons believe and whether the Mormon church is Christian,” said Lifetree representative Craig Cable. “Some accuse the Mormon church of being a cult. We’ll explore whether that’s a fair depiction.” The Lifetree event will encourage various views from the community, according to Cable.
QUARTERLY GIVING STATEMENTS are in the basket in the narthex.
ATTENDANCE for Sunday, May 14 was 74 and total offering was $4,970.
