Aug Gifts: Lee & Heidi Ely built, covered, and installed all those beautiful acoustical panels in our sanctuary for better sound quality and saved big bucks on the Refresh budget! Kudos to Doyle Johnson for the excellent concrete pad for our green bin! Thank you to Tanya Frey for printing the new pictures for the wall, and to Cinda Fueller for installing them – the Living Stones wall looks awesome. Jon & Georgiann Davis provided a beautiful new blue planter with bright yellow mums! They also planted angel wing begonias and greenery in the wall hanger – lovely! Thank you to Amy Birge & Owen DeWitt for helping with projection and sound on Aug 16, when both our usual projectionists were going to be away!!

Look who’s manning the waist gun in red earmuffs on the Maid on the Shade B-25! Yes, that’s Bill Arthur, when he recently went up on a flight!!

Please join us in the sanctuary or the fellowship hall for worship as you are comfortable. We’re broadcasting to our parking lot (front row) on 88.5 FM, and also providing a video of the service uploaded by Sunday afternoon online at:

The Council is planning a retreat day at Lutherhaven on Sat, Sep 19, from 9 am – 3 pm. This day was previously canceled from earlier this year. Council continues to move through their study of The Unstuck Church with Pastor Jon. Our thanks to Lutherhaven for use of their beautiful space at no charge to us.

Joyce Beghtel will continue to deliver food bank donations to CDA. She took 52 lbs in August. Now is a good time to supply the food bank with back-to-school lunch snacks! Personal care items are always very welcome!

Lynn Affeldt will be out of the office for two weeks in Sep. She asks that you please take care of Pastor Jon!

Looking for a place to serve here at Peace? Learning how to prepare the service with ProPresenter and projecting it could be for you! Or how about running the sound board from anywhere in the sanctuary using our iPad? Perhaps you’re a person who enjoys accounting and would like to help count the offering with a partner? Altar Guild, a once per year task, is looking for volunteers. Let the church office know if you would like to become involved with any of these ministries!

Our Uganda Medical Mission is only three months away – Nov 14-26! Keep praying that all avenues will be open to enable this important ministry to go forward. Karen Robison has just signed on to go! Contact Maren Snyders for more info!!

Fellowship continues to be on ‘pause’ for a bit. The outdoor tailgate is on for Sep 13, and perhaps we’ll test the waters after that gathering! If you have any questions, please contact Becky Ellefloot.

Panic! We are down to ONE container of coffee – gasp! Donations of coffee (Yuban?) would be awesome! When you donate anything, the church office can provide a tax-deductible receipt for your much appreciated GIK – thank you always!
