Thank you to the following members who delivered Meals on Wheels in August: Steve & Vernette Mehlhop, Pete & Arlene Pinske, Gene & Pat Solmonson, Brian Asmus Family, Waldo & Caroline Reckdahl, Jr. Kuphal and Amy Swenson. Your volunteering was appreciated by many.
We Need Your Help - As in past summers, we are running a little short with contributions and are asking for your help. If everybody gives a bit extra the next few weeks, it would be appreciated. Once school starts and we again receive tuition income, our financial situation should improve greatly.
We anticipate having a more formal Debt Drive in September – a letter will be sent out with more details at that time.
The LWML Crow River South Conference Rally is at Good Shepherd Church at North Mankato on September 14th. Speaker will be Pastor Tom Braun, who is starting a mission church in St. Peter. Registration is at 8:30am. Cost is $8.00. Anyone interested should contact Darlene Kranz at 2237-5218.

Do you have a suggestion on how we might enhance our worship experience? We’d love to hear it!
