RUMMAGE SALE The LWML semi-annual rummage sale is this week. It will be held on Friday, October 11th and Saturday, October 12th. We will be setting up for the sale early in the week in the parish hall and collecting donations for the sale.
We would kindly request that items you donate be clean and in good shape. Clothing should be free from rips, tears, or stains. Small appliances should be working and have all pieces. Housewares should be free from chips or cracks. When items like these come in that can’t be sold, we need to throw them away.
New for this sale, we are going to have the donation tables and clothes racks set up starting on Monday October 7th during the day. We will place labels on the tables and racks to identify where items should go. Categories will include puzzles & games, office supplies, toys, crafts, bedding, housewares, men’s and women’s clothing, holiday decorations and shoes.
We will have a volunteer at the parish hall during the day on Monday Oct. 7th and Tuesday Oct. 8th that will be happy to assist you. Official setup and pricing will be done on Wednesday, October 9th and Thursday, October 10th from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and we will have more help on those days to assist you with your donations. You are also able to bring donations on Monday evening. The King of Kings Youth group will be assisting with the sale setup.
We would like to thank all of you for your continued support of this event. King of Kings’ LWML has, in turn, been able to support many charitable organizations over the years from our rummage sale proceeds.
THANKS KING OF KINGS! As of Sunday 9/22 we have already raised $1,750. Keep it up and we will reach our goal in no time! How would you like to take $100 and turn it into $400? Lutheran Ministry Services Northwest has been blessed with an opportunity to acquire $154,465.83. The only way we can receive any of the money is to raise the funds, by December 31 ,2019 which will then be matched.
King of Kings has received an offer to match $5,000 raised by our congregation. These monies would then be matched again when given to LMSN. In order to make the December 31 deadline, we need to have our monies into King of Kings by December 1, 2019. Monies could be donated directly to LMSN with the notation that they are for the King of Kings matching grant and qualify if they are received by December 31.
So, a donation of $100 becomes $200 when given through King of Kings matching grant. That $200 becomes $400 when given to LMSN. Let’s see what we can do to help make the $154,465.83 goal.8:30 AM SLIDES: We still need some volunteers to help advance slides at the 8:30 service. Please let pastor know, or contact the church office, if you would be willing to do that. Thank you.

DID YOU KNOW we are now sponsoring two different robotics teams? This year we have both a Lego League Jr. team (possibly two teams) for ages 6-10 and a Lego League team for ages 9-14. If you would like information about joining either team, please see Suzy Hennig. We would like to be able to offer this to all kids at no charge, so no kid is left out. The cost is estimated to run around $1200 (includes team registration, equipment, and possible expo/competition fees). If you are interested in supporting our robotics program, money can be donated to King of Kings and marked for robotics. Thank you.

AROMA NEUTRAL/SCENT FREE: This is one of the comments from one of our members regarding fragrances and scents, “Pastor, when I smell certain things, my nasal and bronchial passages constrict and I have to leave. If it gets bad, I have to use an emergency inhaler or maybe even go to the emergency room.” Thank you for being considerate of the needs of others and working towards a more aroma neutral/scent free worship environment.
Luke 17:10 – “So you also, when you have done all that you were commanded, say, ‘We are unworthy servants; we have only done what was our duty.’ ” We can never put God in our debt. Even if we lived in perfect compliance with the Law, we would still only be unworthy servants. Our giving to the Lord’s work in the Church is a sign that we recognize our role as servants. Furthermore, we give because we recognize our own need for that work of the Lord in the Church. And what a blessing it is to give to the Church so that the ministry of His Word and Sacraments may reach all in the community.
