Jul Gifts: Kudos to Lee Ely and Gordon Schoonmaker for installing two new filters for our water system which will help prevent sand from getting into sprinkler lines and elsewhere. It has been a battle this year… Cheers to our mowing team this summer often in hot weather. Same goes for our church sign changers, Amy Birge and sons, Ben & Owen DeWitt. They are here faithfully every week! Thank you to our drivers that bring folks to church every Sunday. You are so appreciated!  

Great BIG thanks to Owen Walsh who has been formatting flash drives of the Sunday sermon for our homebound folks. The Caring Crew then delivers them that week for our folks to stay connected.

Over time, some of you have let us know of your frustration with the towel dispensers in the restrooms. Ask and you will receive! Due to the generosity of a member who has offered to keep us supplied in paper rolls, new & free automatic dispensers were installed July 25. How incredibly wonderful and such a nice upgrade!

Congrats to Brenda Ely & Sam Connery on their marriage Aug 18.

Wishing them all the joy and blessings for a lifetime! 

Kitchen Donation Needs: Paper towel rolls, napkins, tea varieties, 8 oz hot paper cups (no Styrofoam please), Donation receipts available in the office for your gifts-in-kind – please see Lynn. Thank you!

All are invited to remain after each Sunday worship service, to spend some additional time in meditation and prayer in the front pews of the sanctuary to listen, pray, and acknowledge how GOD is working in our life as individuals, church and community to accomplish HIS PLAN. 

Where’s Little Luther? Find him first, contact Lynn, win a prize!! Congrats to winner Connie Arthur in July!

Ministry Team meetings include Fellowship Team on Jul 31, 10 am, and P&M Team on Aug 7, 6 pm. These are two very fun groups (laughter can always be heard!) and they can use extra folks to join them! Looking for something else? Other ministry teams are Youth & Education, Worship & Music, Stewardship, and Mission & Vision. Give ‘em a whirl and see what fits your spiritual gifts!

Your P&M Team continues to work this summer with all kinds of projects and special tasks. Furnace #1, which is failing, will be replaced this month by Dew-Point Mechanical. A new snow break and awning will be built over the door leading outside of the sanctuary (holes have been dug for supporting posts), sprinkler system tweaks are ongoing, mowing in developed and undeveloped areas, water meter change-out, and finish the Man Cave!

Those gals from the Dorcas Quilting Group sneak in here during summer and continue this wonderful outreach ministry. You know their hands are never idle! Please contact Cinda Fueller, 773-3025, about how you can assist with this ministry, even at home and through the summer!

Thank you to Ardella Quaale for delivering 85.5 lbs. in donations to the Post Falls Food Bank in July. That’s fantastic! Think ‘back to school’ this month with lunch items for children! Our food banks only accept single egg cartons. Kindly recycle your 18-count cartons at home – thank you!

Pictorial Directory Update: Valda Pfundheller who has done a phenomenal job of coordination and design for our new pictorial directory, and uploaded it to Lifetouch Photography mid-July. Our directory will be assembled, proof copy will be reviewed once more, and then production will begin.

Please let the church office know if you have any changes to your address, phone or email. Those that had their picture taken will be provided with a directory when they arrive. Lifetouch will provide some additional free copies, and the church usually purchases copies for future use to give to those who come into our congregation.
