Mite Box Sunday - You can leave your mite box on the back counter in the sanctuary and pick up a new one to fill for next month. Thank you for your contributions to Mites for Missions.

The Sunday School lesson today is one every child remembers vividly; the story of Moses and the plagues on Egypt (Exodus 5-10). Through a series of horrific plagues, God punished the Egyptians for their sinful treatment of His people and freed His people from bondage. Talk with your children about what it means to be freed from the slavery of sin. Ask them to tell you about the plagues and talk about the power of God Almighty.

Messiah’s Knitting and Sewing group has been busy this past summer. They made soft comforting flannel and knit blankets, hats, booties and burp cloths for infants at Seattle Children’s Hospital. They also made prayer scarfs for the Chaplain’s office. They would be happy to have you join their group. Check out their display in the Narthex. A handout is provided that describes the details for making each item. Financial support, to cover the cost of supplies, is also appreciated. Want more information? Contact Jean Holtz, Kathy Lassman or Debbie Viets.

LUTHER, The Graphic Novel, “Echoes of the Hammer” are on sale today during the Education Hour in the Fellowship Hall. This is the story, from birth to death, of Martin Luther who headed a revolution that changed the world. From a small town in medieval Germany, the Reformation resulted in dramatic, sweeping change that still echoes today. Here is Luther’s story of adventure, courage, and faith told for the first time in graphic novel style. It’s perfect for adults and children and the cost is only $10.00. We have 20 books for sale, and if we run out, we will purchase more. See Carole Martens in the Fellowship Hall to purchase your book today.

The church has been contacted by Judy Thompson’s family who have a few items they are trying to sell. Items are first come, first serve and are in “as is” type of condition/donation. For a list of items and contact phone number, please read the flyer posted on the upstairs bulletin board.
