Please pray for our youth group traveling to the Higher Things Conference in Logan UT. The Vicar and four of our High School youth will be leaving Monday morning for the week long conference. Higher Things is dedicated to delivering rock solid Lutheran teaching shared in a reverent and fun environment. Please pray this will be a fun and enlightening trip for all who attend, as well as for safe travels.

Once again Messiah will be hosting a Seminary Continuing Education Class this summer, August 16-20, 2010. This class is open to all lay persons at a cost of $125. (This year the class is 4.5 days instead of the 3 days of last year’s class) The title of this course is “History and Theology of the LCMS” taught by Dr. Lawrence Rast, JR., Ph.D. This course is an extended consideration of the history of the LCMS with a focus on the last 40 years. Pastor encourages you to attend this class if you are able. Sign up on the bulletin board and register online at www.ctsfw.edu.

Donations are being collected in the container behind the school on the following Saturdays: July 10th & 24th between the hours of 9am and 12pm. They are in need of volunteers who would be willing to be the “attendants” at the container when people drop off items. Please contact Cheryl Kohring at 206.364.5324.
Today in Sunday School students studied “God Answers Gideon’s Prayer with Dew” (Judges 6:36-40). Share with our Sunday School students how God used Gideon to fight for His people. Parents might ask, “How did God reassure Gideon of His care for him? How does God reassure us about His care for us?”
A new phone system was installed in May at church. The new system upgrades our phones from the previous 20 + year old system. It handles voice mail better and transferring calls is much easier. The 4 office phones and the 3 hall phones were all replaced. For the hall phones, please press 9 for an outside line. Also, if you want to ring the office press 101 or for Pastor 103 or Vicar 104. If you want to hear the auto attended answering system, give the church a call during off-hours.
