July ’18 Pastor’s Exp & News


Backpack Drive – The LWML will once again be teaming up with Lutheran Family Services to collect school supplies for the 2018 Backpack Drive to help needy students in the Rocky Mountain region, especially foster and refugee children. Our church will be providing two complete backpacks this year – one for a female (pre-K – 2nd grade) and one for a male (3rd – 5th grade). A sign-up sheet with all of the items we need to provide is posted in the fellowship hall. Please sign up for one or more of these items and bring to the church by July 22. Contact Cathy Thiesen for more information. Thank you for your help!

Church Garage and Bake Sale –  Are you tripping over treasures in your garage, attic or closets?  Now’s the time to clean house and donate those items to the Church Rummage Sale! Finding it too hard to part with those memories? Perhaps you could donate your time sorting donations, or ringing up purchases the days of the garage sale. Already tied up for the week? How about baking something yummy to sell at the bake sale tables Friday and Saturday. Proceeds from the Rummage Sale will go to support the activities of LWML. Please contact Kathy Puseman with any questions at 303-816-6705. Thank you in advance for your donations!

Surprise! – God is a God of surprises. He takes nothing and makes a world. He fills a boat with animals and saves a family from a flood. He uses a reluctant talker to convince Pharoah to free a nation. He wakes His people up to the sight of manna covering barren ground. He demolishes walls with the sound of trumpets. He spits up a prophet from a fish’s stomach. He teaches uneducated fishermen to be eloquent. He reaches into a lunch bag and feeds five thousand people. He makes ordinary bread and wine holy. He sends His Son to die and restores Him to life. He heals sick people. He makes sad people happy. He makes dead people live. And He takes sinners like you and me and makes us saints.
