National Youth Gathering Recap
Students and adults enjoyed an uplifting and educational experience in Minneapolis. Our students participated in service activities, bible studies, mass events, worship service, educational seminars, experiential sessions, leisure play, and had the opportunity to visit the booths of many of the recognized service organizations of the LCMS as well as booths sponsored by the universities in the Concordia college and seminary system. Students will have a brief presentation at the end of worship on August 25th, as well as displaying photos and memorabilia from our journey. Minneapolis was a beautiful and gracious host city. Our accommodations were very nice at the Marriott Renaissance Minneapolis The Depot. We look forward to hearing our student’s perspective on this event.

SS Missions – Thanks to those who so generously donated to our Sunday School mission projects in 2 nd quarter, we collected $647 to go to LCMS Disaster Relief. Because there continues to be a great need in our nation for disaster relief, our 3rd quarter project will remain the same in donations going to LCMS Disaster Relief.

Sunday School – Julie Donaldson has agreed to fill the Director of Education position (thank you Julie!) in the wake of Ruth’s move to Athens. We have not been able to finda teacher to fill Ruth’s class so have split the age groups between Jim Aton’s class and Helen Klamt’s class. Jim has approx. 10 students (grades 8-12); Helen has approx. 10 students (grades 3-7); and Anne has approx. 10 students (ages 3-grade 2). Halle/Danait
are assisting Anne with the preschoolers.
St. Mark Lutheran Church, Tucker raised $839 in the fight against hunger, held in April.
