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.

The program, titled “Curing Healthcare: Practical Help for an Ailing Nation,” features a filmed interview with healthcare insider Joe Flower, author of Healthcare Beyond Reform. “In our system, even a person with a good job and good insurance is one serious disease away from bankruptcy and permanent poverty,” says Fowler. “To me, there is something screwy about that, and it’s something we can fix.”
