Can You Lend A Helping Hand?
LCMS World Relief is there in times of tragedy such as what we are currently witnessing in the Philippines. Our Church makes simple quilts that are given to those in need of a little warmth around the world. We need more hands to accomplish this task. Please lend your hand to help this important ministry.
How can you help? Join us when we meet to quilt. Don’t sew? That’s fine; we just need your willing hands. There is plenty of work that does not involve any sewing. Check the Church calendar for meeting times. Don’t have two hours to spare? That’s fine too; come for the amount of time you can. We welcome your help; many hands make light the work.
Can’t join us? How about donating some fabric? We make use of old sheets, pillow cases, blankets, quilts, curtains, tablecloths…anything with some yardage of material. Donated material can be left on the cart in the room next to the kitchen where the freezers are located.
If you would like to learn more about our quilting ministry please consult Vangie Kuehl (920-474-4181), The next scheduled quilting time will be Tuesday, January 14 beginning at 6:00 p.m. Hope to see you there. Thank you for your help!
It’s that time again! Please call Thrivent 800-847-4836 to redirect your Thrivent Choice Dollars for the 3rd Quarter. For the additional $20.00 dollar campaign we received $280.0. To date we have received $1951. Thank you!!
PLEASE REMEMBER the families in need in our community by donating to the Ashippun Bread Basket. Just pick up an extra item while you are out shopping, and place it in the cart in the Narthex. Current need suggestions are soup, peanut butter, cereal, and canned fruit. Thank you!
A BIG THANK YOU
We would like to thank our church family for supporting us in work for Ashippun Bread Basket by attending the Soup/Salad Lunch and Silent Auction to enjoy eating some delicious soups and salad, bid on the silent auction and receiving some of the items in return, and also by donating desserts.
Ice cream social is Tues. August 26th 4:00PM-?.
There will be a committee meeting Thurs. Aug 7 at 6:00pm.
Anyone wishing to help you are welcome to attend.
WE NEED HELP!!
All Ladies Aid members please attend this meeting.

AN ATHEIST'S VIEW ON LIFE
I will live my life according to these beliefs
God does not exist
It is just foolish to think
That there is a God with a cosmic plan
That an all-powerful God brings purpose to
the pain and suffering in the world
It’s a comforting thought however
Is only wishful...thinking
People can do as they please without eternal consequences
The idea that
I am deserving of Hell
Because of sin
Is a lie meant to make me a slave to those in power
The more you have the happier you will be
Our existence has no grand meaning or purpose
In a world with no God
There is freedom to be who I want to be
But with God
Everything is fine
It is ridiculous to think
I am lost and in need of saving
VERSUS A CHRISTIAN'S VIEW ON LIFE
(Now…read from bottom to top to see a different view.)
JELLY BEAN POEM
Little jelly beans
Tell a story true.
A tale of Father's love
Just for me and you.
GREEN is for the waving palms.
YELLOW is for the sun above.
BROWN is for the soft earth where
People sat hearing of HIS love.
A SPECKLED bean for fish and sand.
RED for precious wine and
BLACK is for the sin
He washed from you soul and mine.
PURPLE'S for the sadness of
HIS family and His friends,
WHITE is for the glory of
The Day HE rose again.
Now that you've heard the story
You know what each color means.
The story of our Father's love
Told by some jelly beans.
So every morning take a bean
They're really very yummy.
Something for the soul, you see
And something for the tummy
