Dedication of expanded facilities

The Service of Dedication for our expanded facilities will be next Sunday, November 1st, at 10:45 am. That will be the only service that morning. We will have a congregational potluck dinner at noon (the meat will be furnished), and a Service of Praise and Thanksgiving at 2:30 pm. The Rev. Brad Zerkel, a former member of our congregation, and Pastor of Our Redeemer Lutheran, Kansas City, will be our guest speaker for the afternoon service. The Rev. Dr. David Johns will serve as the guest organist for both services. Refreshments will be served after the afternoon service.

First service in new sanctuary

The first church service in the brand new sanctuary was held September 20th. There are still some details to be finished such as the sound system, and carpeting the altar area. It is tremendous to be in the new building. The band and the Shepherd’s Own performed.

Volunteer to Help

Work on the expansion of the church building is progressing well.  The footings and the foundations have been poured and work has begun on getting the steel supports up and the floors poured.  When this phase of the project is completed, we will begin the wood construction of the building.  That’s when the need for volunteer help will be the greatest. 

 We have a sign up sheet in the narthex for you to let us know you can help.  You do not need to be skilled in any area, just willing to help out where you can.  Some volunteer work will be done during the week, but most of it will be done on Saturdays. 

Mike Q. has agreed to serve as the “go between” between the Laborers and us.  They will keep him informed of what needs to be done and how many they need to help.  He will then inform us so we know when and how to help.

Volunteers will also be needed to provide a morning snack during the week and a light lunch on Saturday.  You will be hearing more about that in the next few weeks.  We still need someone to coordinate the food, so if you would like to help in that way, let us know at the church office, 358-1325.
