FIRST LUTHERAN NEWS
On Sunday, September 17th we will begin a Study of the Reformation. This is for adults and Confirmation students alike! Those attending should meet in the Chapel on the 17th at 9:15am. We will be teaming up with the Adult Forum on the 17th and 24th to hear from those who recently took a tour of Germany for the Reformation anniversary. If you have any questions about this study, please contact Pastor Joy Mortensen-Wiebe or Pastor Terry Larson. All are welcome!
In support of those affected by the recent hurricanes, First Lutheran is encouraging those who would like to provide monetary help to use the following link to donate online: www.elca.org/disaster
If you like, you may instead download a paper form which you can fill out and mail, along with your donation, to the ELCA Lutheran Disaster Response for this cause.
First Lutheran recently said farewell to our pastoral intern and his wife, Tim and Mary Kay Knipfer. Tim was our Vicar this past year. He is now returning to Wartburg to complete his final year at seminary. We will miss them both very much! Below are a few pictures from our farewell program for Tim and Mary Kay:
