As summer marches on, we continue our Partners in Mission program. Each weekend throughout
the summer months, we lift up the ministry of an organization that we work with as we are Sharing
Christ’s Love in our community and in our world.
In July, we will learn more about and support these ministries:
June 30 & July 1 — Osupuko Parish, Tanzania
July 7 & 8 — Another Child Foundation
July 14 & 15 — Fund for Leaders in Mission
July 21 & 22 — Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services
July 28 & 29 — World Hunger
Continue bringing your coins to church each weekend for the noisy offering to support our Partners
in Mission. Stop by the bulletin board in the Fellowship Room and see how we are connected with our
partners all over the world!
Clothing drive for Another Child Foundation
One of our mission partners in the month of July will be Another Child Foundation. This organization provides
education and other life-giving opportunities for orphaned and at-risk children in Romania. This summer, we will
be hosting a clothing drive. From June 30 to July 29, we will collect children’s t-shirts and girl’s leggings. ACF needs short-sleeved T-shirts for boys and girls, sizes 3T through Adult Medium, and leggings for girls in the
same sizes. The kids particularly like the “graphic tees” that can be found at many stores, with favorite characters or fun designs. Bring your donations to the box marked “Another Child Foundation” in the Fellowship Room.
Altar Flowers for 2018
Altar flowers can be donated in honor or memory of a loved one, special occasion, or simply for the glory of God. The cost of two arrangements is $45. If you would like to purchase altar flowers in 2018, please sign up at the Welcome Center.

Children and those who have not yet received Communion instruction are invited to receive a blessing.
Children are welcome! Children are welcome in worship at First, where a special children’s message is presented every week to help our youngest worshippers understand and live God's words for them. While all children are always welcome, a staffed nursery is provided on Sundays for small children who find it difficult to sit for long periods of time and whose parents desire childcare during worship.
First is handicapped-accessible and we welcome people of all abilities at every worship service and ministry event.
Baptisms are celebrated at First for persons of all ages. To schedule a baptism please contact the Pastor or the church office.
Weddings at First are a joyous occasion! To schedule a wedding or inquire about wedding policies and procedures please contact the church office.
