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 2nd 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 (July-Aug.-Sept.) will remain the same in donations going to LCMS Disaster Relief.
Rally Day – On August 25, we celebrated Rally Day with a delicious cookout and fun congregational fellowship. Thanks to all who brought a side dish – we had more food than we could possibly eat! The students who attended the National Youth Gathering read thank you letters to the congregation for their support of their trip, and shared their photos with us. The Youth also provided ice cream & toppings in thanks to the church for their generosity & support of the National Youth Gathering.
Sunday School –Due to a shortage of Sunday School teachers, we have combined several age groups into three classes. Jim Aton has approx. 10 students (grades 8-12); Helen Klamt has approx. 10 students (grades 3-7); and Anne Kunz has approx. 10 students (ages 3-grade 2). Halle & Danait are assisting Anne with the preschoolers.
Carol Aton was kind enough to create a flyer for our Education needs. This has been posted around the church and we hope to get some volunteers to fill these needs. Recruiting new volunteers will be our focus for our table on Stewardship Sunday. Teacher training will be provided by Julie Donaldson, should a new teacher for the middle school class step up.
Specifically, we have identified these areas where we need extra help:
St. Mark Lutheran Church, Tucker raised $839 in the fight against hunger, held in April.
Thank you for your support and God Bless!
