PRAYING BEFORE THE SERVICE would be a great habit to observe, both for yourself and for those who are leaders and helpers at worship.  Inside the front cover of our Lutheran Service Book there are multiple prayers that could be a “launching pad” for your own … before worship, before attending the Lord’s Table, etc.  You’ll find other fuller prayers on Page 308 of the hymnal.

DID YOU MISS SIGNING UP FOR PICTURES?  We’re overjoyed at the strong response, and the original August appointments for pictures going into the 100th Anniversary Pictorial Directory are all filled.  However … not to worry!  In late summer we will be able to offer additional time-slots for pictures in October.  Just stay tuned, and we’ll keep you posted in a few weeks.

ATTENDING PASTOR FENN’S INSTALLATION?  Pastor Torgerson will be driving to Stratford following this morning’s services in order to attend the Installation service of Rev. Matthew Fenn at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church.  Please speak with him if you are interested in attending as he is willing to bring along three other people in his car.

PASTORAL HOLIDAYS:  Pastor Bugbee and Gail are on summer holidays this week, but Pastor Torgerson remains available if emergencies arise or you have need of pastoral care.

CHURCH OFFICE SUMMER HOURS:  Remember that during these weeks of July and August our church office is open Tuesday-Thursday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

WE SHARE THE AIR:  Scented products have chemicals that may trigger serious health reactions in people with asthma, migraines, allergies or chemical sensitivities.  To minimize the impact to our members, friends and visitors, we respectfully ask that all of us either avoid or reduce the use of scented products when attending or visiting our church.  We thank you for your understanding and help.
