TEN FOR TEACHERS

 

 School supplies will be collected July 30-Sept. 3 for First Lutheran teachers to help their students. Many teachers pay hundreds of dollars from their own pockets for school items, and your contributions help to defray the cost. When you buy 10 items or contribute $10 for this ministry, please sign your name on a school supply on a bulletin board near the library. Please make checks to First Lutheran and put "school supplies" on the offering envelope.  Collection boxes are in the north entrance and at Frank Moore's office near the main office. Contact: Jean Young, young.jean@att.net, who is coordinating this effort. Teachers will be able to pick up items needed for their students on Sunday, August 27 or Sunday, Sept. 3 or during the week in between those two dates.

ALL ARE WELCOME HERE

No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here, because we believe that every person is a Child of God, and all are welcome in God’s Loving Embrace.

If you are young or old, you are welcome. If you have dark skin, medium skin or light skin, you are welcome. If you are married or single, dating, divorced, engaged or widowed, you are welcome. If you are gay or straight, bisexual, transgender or questioning, you are welcome. If you are happy or sad, you are welcome. If you are poor or rich, powerful or weak, you are welcome.

If you need to be forgiven, or if you need to forgive someone else, you are welcome; If you believe in God some of the time, none of the time, or all of the time, you are welcome.

Come with your gifts, your pain, your hope, your fears;
Come with the traditions that have helped you and hurt you;
Come with your experiences that have built you up and broken you down.

Come and listen for the Sacred Spirit calling you to love your neighbor wholeheartedly, seek justice, create peace and practice compassion.

All are welcome here, and all means ALL.
