News & Events

Sep Gifts: Amy Birge braved the smoky skies and prairie wind changing sign letters last month. Thanks to Tom Affeldt for replacing the burners in the grill – we’re ready for those brats on Oct 29! Ruth Clark has gifted the choir with new binders and donated toward this year’s Christmas Cantata – we can’t wait to hear this beautiful music! Thank you to Lee Ely for the gift of a heavy-duty walker for those needing assistance.  

Your September donations totaled 136.5 lbs to Post Falls Food Bank and were delivered by Ardella Quaale. Great giving Peace! For your convenience, there is a list posted on our food cart of the most needed items at our food banks. Please remember to check expiration dates before giving – thank you!

Our elected LCMC Gathering delegates, Karen Ellis and Molly Shofner, will be up and away Oct 8, as they fly to Minneapolis for three days of inspiring workshops and worship. Prayers for safe travels!

The Dorcas Quilting Group meets the first and third Mondays of the month from 9 am – 1 pm, and always welcomes new folks to this mission ministry. They take a short coffee break and eat lunch together at noon. Come for a few hours or stay for the day. If sewing squares or tops & bottoms together, pinning, tying the quilt, or ironing is something you would like to try, stop by! The ladies are being honored for their community volunteerism at the annual RSVP Appreciation banquet on Sept 30! Please contact Cinda Fueller, 773-3025, about how you can assist anytime with this ministry, even at home!

Donations of supplies for the church are always welcome! Looks like TP is high on the list of needed items. Other items such as small paper plates, paper cups (hot), tissues, or vinegar are always gladly accepted. You may bring them in during the week or Sunday. Tax receipts available in the office for your gifts. Thank you!!

Looking for a simple task to do around church? Come change the letters on our new signage once/twice per month. Message is provided for posting. If you can help, please let the office know.

The Church Staff meets together every Tue from 10-11 am to pray, plan, and share goals. Please let us know on Monday if you have something for our agenda! We are always closed for the lunch hour from 12-1 p.m. The local LCMC pastors meet at Peace for Text Study every first Tue of the month from noon until 3 p.m. P&M Team meets the first Tue at 6 pm – come see what the guys are up to! Fellowship Team usually meets the first Monday at 10 am. Call Margaret Nagel to become involved.

Is anyone in need of a good medium-sized lift chair? Call Ruth Clark at 208-446-8509!

Two Future Events in 2018:

~We want to let you know about this event as soon as possible so you can plan and get it on your calendar. Peace has booked dates for our next Pictorial Directory for May 3-5, 2018. Can you believe it’s already been three years this month since we did the last one? So many changes since then!

~Liberty Quartet will be with us again for a beautiful morning of worship and songs. We have booked them for June 3, at 10 am. We only need to provide two hotel rooms and lunch after the service. Let the church office know if you would like to support those needs!

 

Thank You for Serving! – Ecumenical Food Kitchen

PLC volunteers will be serving at The Ecumenical Food Kitchen on Thursday, Sept 28, at First Presbyterian Church, CDA. This is our last opportunity to serve this year, and I pray this outreach service will continue next year! Thank to those who donated food and money, and who will serve tomorrow: Ken Birge, Jim & Roxanne Helgeson, and Connie Arthur!

Marge Freligh, Coordinator, at 208-699-1697.

 

Reformation Fest!

The Castle Folk are planning a BIG celebration for the 500th Reformation Anniversary to be held on Sunday, October 29, following worship. Thank you for all your donations to the Mile of Pennies to support this event! To date, $292 has been contributed toward our party for brats, white & red sauerkraut, German potato salad, crisp pickles, beer, fixin’s, and supplies. You are invited to bring your favorite side, salad, and dessert – who will make streusel? YUM!!

Castle decorations are coming together, and costume wearing to worship is encouraged that day; remember, we are in a 16th century castle and the party is German Fest style. So wear your Renaissance Faire costumes or German dirndls/lederhosen. Let’s have a party!!

 

Holiday Bazaar

The Holiday Bazaar will be on Saturday, December 2, from 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM. We hope you are all thinking hard about handmade items you can contribute to our craft and gift shop. Also, now is the time to start looking through your Christmas stuff to see what you aren’t using anymore. Our Christmas Treasures section will feature gently used ornaments and decorative items, Christmas themed dishware, and any gift wrap and ribbons that might be donated. We’re looking forward to a nice display.
