These are fast times we’re living in. As life moves quicker and quicker, we
can become overwhelmed and exhausted. It’s no surprise that when it comes to
our relationships, we find ourselves with little or no time to put into
them. Here is a different way to read through the Bible in a
year. May you be blessed as God speaks to you through the words that are God
inspired. Click here to

LWR, EKLC Food Drive & Sunday School
The Sunday School Youth recently had an opportunity to learn more about
helping others in need with a fall food drive. The food collected was
weighed and the Church Council matched the donations in dollars for LWR. As
a result, the children had a generous $1000 to "spend" on Lutheran World
Relief Gifts. Click here to see what they chose!
