Mark Your Calendars- It's a BBQ!
Join us for a Friendship BBQ honoring the new members we have gained and welcome our teachers and school families back to school. NEXT Sunday, 18 August, 12:30 PM- 2:00 PM.
Delicious Texas BBQ, potato salad, and good company will be provided. Please bring a side to share with your fellow members and guests.
Keep an eye out for the Fellowship table in the Commons between services to sign-up for a side or dessert or to volunteer to help the day of the BBQ.
We are also looking for a few good Lutherans to help with clean-up afterward. Remember many hands make for light work!
 
See YOU there!
From the Vicar
Do Not Be Anxious 
Summer's a perfect time to escape the daily grind and get a moment's peace. But often, the second that you sit down in your chair at the beach, anxious thoughts come creeping instead, whispering about the things you forgot to do, the pay cut you took at work, the mortgage you're struggling to pay. Jesus tells His disciples, "Do not be anxious about your life" (Luke 12:22). He can say this, because you have a Father who is in control of the whole world. Your Father has both created everything and provides for everything, every raven flying in the air, every lily growing in the field-how much more will He care for you, His baptized child, His prized possession? So when the anxious thoughts come whispering, look to the cross instead, and know that you have a Father who loves you and watches over you.
