Worship returns to 10:15 AM on September 9th. We will have an opening at 9:00 AM in the social room and put together Power Pack meals for the school.

Book sale at Trinity, Greencastle: books are being collected for the sale. The Book Sale will be on September 27th (10 AM to 7 PM), 28th (10 AM to 6 PM), and 29th (8:30 AM to 12 PM).

Power Pack Meals: We need microwavable cup meals, granola bars, individual servings of applesauce, crackers & cheese/crackers and peanut butter, and individual fruit cups for meal packs to be given to kids at-risk for hunger outside of school. Donated items can be put in the box at the back of the sanctuary.

School Kits for Lutheran World Relief: We need 70-sheet notebooks (8” X 10 ½”), rulers (centimeters or combined inch/centimeter), pencil sharpeners, children’s safety scissors, #2 pencils with erasers, black or blue ballpoint pens (not gel), boxes of 16 or 24 crayons, and 2½-inch erasers. These items may be placed in a box in the back of the sanctuary.

Salem family: A few weeks ago I asked you to keep in your prayers a 9-year-old, Lucy Riley, who is in desperate need of a heart transplant. This week her condition worsened, and Lucy is now at Boston Children’s Hospital at Stage 1a, meaning that she will not leave the hospital until a transplant is done, if it comes in time. Lucy’s congregation, which is the church I grew up in, St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Torrington, CT, is trying to shower her with cards of encouragement and well wishes. I am asking if you would be willing to fill out cards, place them in their envelopes and drop them off at the church by September 3rd. I would like to send them all in one big envelope. Thank you all. Pastor Denise

Activity: Where do you see God in nature? Take a picture or write a note. Tell us where you see God in nature. Put it in Sandy’s box, email it to the church, or drop it at the church office. How many ways do you see God?
