Your Church Needs You
Open Committee Positions

In January there are several council positions that will be open, and need to be filled in order for the business of the church to be completed.  Below you will see the list of open positions and the length of the term.  Some are one year terms as these seats needed to be filled last January and no one stepped forward.  In a few cases, the individuals who have extended their service for this year will not be able to continue. Please pray on how best you can serve your church family. You will not be abandoned if you step forward and are elected. You will receive help and guidance from past members, so please don't let this possible fear hold you back.  Up for election in January are the following:

  • President - 1 year term - 2 year term at re-election in 2021
  • Vice President - 2 year term
  • Treasurer - 1 year term - 2 year term at re-election in 2021
  • Secretary - 2 year term
  • Financial Secretary -  2 year term
  • Member-At-Large - 2 year term

There are still many committee and sub-committee positions that need to be filled.  Please take a few minutes to review the data in the committee binder to see is there is a role you can fill to help your church.  There is a binder at the back of the sanctuary.  If you know what committee or sub-committee you would like to serve please notify Sunni Leggate or Marcie Vallejo.

God's Work Our Hands

On September 8, 2019 we will be assembling Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes to help bring the word of God to children in need.  We are taking monetary donations, as well as donations of items and toys.  A list of acceptable items will be provided soon.  Please be sure to think, and pray regarding the gifts that the Lord wishes for you to share with his little children around the world.  We also hope you will be able to assist in filling the show boxes on the 8th of September in the Lutheran Center after service.

Save the Date

Our DEM, Teresita "Tita" Valeriano will be visiting with our congregation on September 22, 2019.  We will have a potluck after service, and she will be available to answer our questions.  Please be sure to be in the congregation on the 22nd, and bring your questions.  Don't forget to also bring your appetite as well as your favorite side dish or appetizers to share with your church family!  The question and answer session will be directly after our potluck, so if you can't stay to ask your question, please notify a council member who will be happy to ask on your behalf


If you receive manufacturers coupons in the mail, or your Sunday paper, and have no use for some of them, or any of them, please bring them to Sunni Leggate.  She will send them to Support Our Troops group in Florida.  They distribute them to military families. If they are expired, or close, please bring them anyway as military families can use them on base up to six months past their expiration date.  If you do not have time to clip them, don't worry about it as Sunni will clip them, or maybe we will arrange a clipping party in the church hall one Sunday.  Thank you!
