WOW!! VBS WAS GREAT!! Thank you to all of our wonderful volunteers, who worked so hard to show the children that no matter what, Jesus Rescues! We had a huge crowd of children and this church was filled with their voices singing praises to God. It truly was an amazing year, and we are already looking forward to next year! Join us for Rocky Railway! Suzy Hennig
HOMECOMING IS COMING UP, Sunday September 8. President Ken Hennings, from Texas, will be our speaker. We will have one service at 10:30 followed by our traditional pig roast. Please put it on your calendar.
PRINCESSES WANTED: We need princesses for our Homecoming Court. If your little girl would like to be a princess, we would love to have her participate. Please dress your little girl as a princess, Disney, African, Indian, whatever you choose. We will have some costume parts; but please do your best bring a little girl dressed as a princess. We will meet in the church, participate in the church children’s message and then go to children’s church to rehearse our princess pageant parts. For more information see the poster in the narthex and take a flyer.
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN PARTICIPATING IN A NEW MEMBER OR ADULT CONFIRMATION CLASS, please contact Pastor Birner or the church office. We have two people who have expressed an interest in learning more about the Lutheran understanding of the Christian faith. Such a class will take place on a weeknight or Saturday mornings beginning in September.
THE WEDNESDAY MORNING BIBLE CLASS is on summer break. Keep an eye on the King’s News to find out when we will resume in the fall.
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.
PRODUCE FOR THE FOOD BANK - When harvesting from your vegetable garden, think about the food bank and harvest a little extra. Fresh vegetables and fruit are greatly appreciated by our food bank’s recipients. 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 12:51 – “Do you think that I have come to give peace on earth? No, I tell you, but rather division.” Jesus has come to divide us out of the world, to carve out a people for Himself redeemed by His Blood and trusting His Word. The world hates this Word, but for us it is life and salvation. We seek to follow Jesus’ Word in all things because we know Him who gave us the Word. We know He always seeks to bless us.
