Neighborhood Social Time, October 2

Your help is needed to staff, plan and advertise an opportunity to reach out to our neighbors across the street and around the neighborhood.  Join others to set up lawn chairs, greet neighbors and organize games and activities on the east lawn.  We will serve ice cream treats and introduce First Lutheran new and old neighbors on the block.  Interested in helping contact Pastor Kristine for more information.

On Sunday, October 16th, parents, kids and anyone interested are invited to participate in the Siouxland Crop Walk.  This event is a long time service project of this congregation.  We will gather at 1 pm at Grace United Methodist Church in Morningside and bring a canned good.  Together we will walk the route and stop for an ice cream treat at Dairy Queen along the route.  Please join us as we walk to end hunger.
