Altar Care Volunteers Needed for 10:30AM Service - Please prayerfully consider volunteering to serve a month as alter care. Availability for the months of August, September, and December. Communion can be set up on Saturday so it is ready for Sunday morning, and washed and put away after the service (takes less than an hour to clean up). Communion every other week. Great for families, men and women. No experience necessary, training provided! Signup sheets on church hallway bulletin board. Questions, please contact Debi Thompson.

Prayer Chain Update
The Faith Lutheran Prayer Chain would like to thank Marilyn Zimmerman for faithfully serving as coordinator of our group for many years. She has now passed the baton to Margi Harris. We pray confidentially for anyone who requests that we do so. You can simply request “prayers”, or you can give as many details as you care to share. No questions asked. Whatever the case know that all information stays within the group and is not shared.

Please prayerfully consider joining our group to pray for others in need of prayer or to offer praise to God, Jesus our Savior and the Holy Spirit for all their benefits to us. If you would like to join please email Margi. Contact information in November's newsletter.

“And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.”  
Ephesians 6:18
