Three Good Things That Will Happen in October

1. We will hold a congregational meeting on Thursday, October 13, at 6:30 p.m. At this dual-purpose meeting, we’ll present our voters with a recommendation from the Church Council regarding a potential capital campaign and campus expansion. We’ll also be calling for two teachers to start in Fall 2023: an upper-grade math and technology teacher and an additional K3 teacher. Please note that this replaces the meeting previously scheduled for this Sunday, October 2. There will not be a congregational meeting this Sunday.  

2. We'll bring together our church and school families for our annual Fall Festival. We'd love to see you on Sunday, October 2, from 2:00 - 5:00 p.m. for a carnival theme! Come and check out games, activities, snacks, prizes, and more.

3. Our fall sports teams will wrap up their seasons. We've enjoyed watching our soccer, volleyball, and cross country teams enjoy success over the last month, and we wish them all the best as they compete for a few more weeks!

Two Good Things That Happened in September

1. We resumed our regular fall schedule of Bible studies and Sunday School. We have a number of Bible study offerings for you to take part in: Sunday mornings, Wednesday mornings (men and women's studies), and Thursday mornings. We invite you to find a study that works for you and spend some time in God's Word!

2. We celebrated our annual mission festival and heard from Senior Vicar Christian Willick. Please keep our WELS home missions in your prayers, especially our new synodical initiative of 100 Missions in 10 Years.
