Worship Committee Not Meeting in July

Worship Committee will not meet in July. The next Worship Committee meeting
will be Monday, August 4, 2014 at 5:30pm.
The council, at the June meeting, accepted the low bid for the Altar Table
requested by the Worship Committee. Dan Korth of Cambridge will build the
table, matching the styling's of the chancel furnishing crafted by Orin
Kaare. Gifts and memorials may be given to this project. Any funds received
over and above the cost of the Altar Table will go toward worship supplies.
Stewardship and Thanksgiving
A sincere 'thank you' to everyone
who supports our congregation throughout the year with attendance, service
and regular financial contributions. EKLC offers electronic giving options
for making donations on a scheduled, automated basis.

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!
