Update on Outreach Efforts
During August, we distributed over 750 flyers advertising our worship services and complimentary baptisms and quinceañera worship services. We also personally gave out over 50 of the Cristo Rey Lutheran purple wristbands. These were distributed by a volunteer evangelist and pastor. We recently received a shipment of 4,000 newly designed flyers to distribute in the coming weeks. May God bless these efforts to share the gospel message!
Building Remodel Updates
During August, new windows were installed along the east side of the church. These new windows are more energy efficient. They create a quieter environment for when classes and meetings are being held. They also provide an additional level of safety. We thank Trustee Dan Verner for organizing this project. Soon, the new back fence and front gate will be installed. On September 11, the team from Builders for Christ will arrive to begin work on our interior renovation.
On August 20, Nora Elizabeth Behmer was baptized into God’s family. We were blessed with (51) in attendance for this occasion. A lunch was provided after the service with a local mariachi band performing. May God keep Nora in her baptismal grace all the days of her life.
