Potpourri from Pas+or Miller

Here is a “potpourri” – a collection of different things, (according to Merriam Webster), concerning our life together as First Lutheran Church and School, for October 2014!

Welcome, Pastor Toombs & Samantha!

After a wonder-full Installation Service and elegant Banquet the work has begun! September has been a month of planning and learning about each other for our pastoral team. I believe God has richly blessed us with a talented, very dedicated, man to minister to each of us and with all of us, and a supportive and caring wife! I second what I have overheard many times, “We’re so glad you are here!”

Thanks to Susan McCormack, Lowell & Susan Bartels, Matt & Anita Elvbakken, and Crew for a fitting and delicious after-the-Installation celebration!

Please Keep Wearing Your Name tags whenever you are around to help our newest members, (including Pastor and Samantha Toombs) get to know your name!

Li’l Books of the New Testament

“Li’l Books of the New Testament” will be our new Sunday Bible Study meeting each week in the Fellowship Centre! Please join us as together we grow in God’s Word!

Pictures! Pictures! Pictures!

Thanks also to Bridget Michel, Nancy Bowe and the others who have worked so hard already and who have much more to do to make our pictorial directory a valuable tool!

Thanks also to all who have had pix taken to help complete our book!

I hope YOU will attend this upcoming event!
