Take in a Show – Support Our Youth!

We all know the story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, but Christian Youth Theater North Idaho (CYT-NI) is producing a clever retelling of the classic tale filled with comedy, romance, adventure, and great songs. The show is “Snow White and the Prince.” Ben DeWitt is casted as “Clumpy,” a loveable dwarf, and Owen DeWitt will make sure you see everyone on stage, as he runs the light board for the backstage crew.

“Snow White and the Prince” runs May 19– 28, 2017, at the S.A. Kroc Community Center. For more information about the show or CYT, go to the CYT-NI’s website: To purchase tickets please call the box office at (208) 277- 5727.


Christian Education

Sunday School for all ages is at 8:30 a.m. each Sunday. Pastor Wandrey continues to lead an Adult Study on Martin Luther and the Reformation throughout this 500th anniversary year! Pastor Gail gathers with Jr & Sr High school youth, and on Wed evening with the Confirmation students (Save the Date: Confirmation Sunday is June 4!). Lisa Seher teaches our elementary aged children with crafts and exciting Bible stories. WE’ll honor our Teachers & Grads on June 11!) Sunday School ends on May 21, and resumes this fall on Rally Day!


May Adult Study

Sunday Morning Adult Study continues with the Augsburg Confession. This document is an explanation of our Christian faith written in 1530 to defend the Lutheran understanding of Scripture in response to the challenge of a variety of Protestant positions coming out of the Reformation. There are twenty-eight Articles that include God, Original Sin, the Son of God, Justification, the Church, the Sacraments, Freedom of the Will, and more. This is an excellent opportunity to brush up on your knowledge and understanding of your Lutheran Christian faith! We begin at 8:30 on Sunday mornings. For your information and good, please join us! Pastor Wandrey


Serendipity Bible Study: Wednesday at 9:45 a.m.

NEW STUDY! We will begin a new study of 1 & 2 Corinthians beginning in May, and we’re going through the summer! All are welcome to attend. We share our life concerns and blessings for the first 15 minutes, and then dig right into the Word at 10 a.m. Coffee and often goodies accompany this study. Please join us for this special time with our Savior, Jesus. – Pastor Gail


May Activities for YAP!

The NEW Yap Leaders gathered at Pastor Gail’s home on Monday, April 24, 2017 for their first official youth leader’s meeting. Attending were Luke Snyders, Lance Ely, Owen Walsh, Maddy Kirking and Lexie Newman. Plans were finalized for their pickup and delivery assistance for the rummage sale. They discussed their next event which will be “movie night/hang out time” at Kirking’s on Friday, May 19, at 6:00 PM. This will be a potluck meal. Movie choice is “I Am Not Ashamed!”

The youth are excited about serving at Lutherhaven “Champ Camp” the week of June 18-23, working with disabled children. Five youth are determined to go, and chaperones have yet to be chosen.

Discussion on where we can serve the community was had, and a suggestion was Father Bill’s Kitchen. Pastor Gail is checking on this. – Pastor Gail

VBS will be at 5:30 PM each night the week of July 17-21, and the youth are ready to assist! We will begin with sandwiches and fruit then move right into the program at 6 PM. We are going to be doing “AMAZON OUTFITTERS” – On Expedition with the One True God!
