Announcements ~ August 8, 2021

A:       I was glad when they said to me,
C:  “Let us go to the house of the Lord.                                     (Psalm 122:1)

 * A special welcome to all our guests. What a blessing it is to be together in God’s presence to worship.

*Today Pastor Alessandri will continue to lead an Adult Sunday School series in the Gathering Room. Come join the discussion on “Thriving After Covid.” Even if you have not attended any other session, you WILL be able to fully participate. There will be coffee, goodies, and good fellowship and discussion around God’s word. Everyone will is also invited to continue fellowship over lunch at Tony’s restaurant on Pennsylvania Avenue

*Check out the Harvest for Hunger table in the church lobby.

*The Bach Festival Concert, postponed from March 2020, will be held at Trinity Lutheran Church this Saturday, August 14th at 4 PM. Our organist, Steve Pastena, will be performing the thrilling Fantasia in G Major. Admission is free, and the atmosphere is light, so you are welcome to come as you are, and even bring a book or knitting!

*The more ushers we have, the fewer times each has to serve. It’s easy and a blessing to our worshipping community. PLEASE sign up on your attendance sheet today!

This week’s concerns and joys:

*Thanks to all who have brought in school supplies for our Community School Supply Outreach Project. If you forgot to bring your supplies today, please let Elaine Michael know and bring them to the parsonage back porch or the church office by tomorrow. If you could like to help us sort and pack them for delivery, please tell Elaine Michael or call in to the church office. God’s work. Our Hands. Blessed to be a blessing.

*Best wishes to Eric Byers, Thelma Wolf, Don Blickenstaff Sr, Melissa Butsch, Will Seilhamer and Craig Meredith who celebrate a birthdays this week. Congratulations to Cliff and Sue Britton who have a wedding anniversaries this week.
