“Come to the Table!” will be our theme for the day.  As communion will be celebrated on Rally Sunday, we will especially remember and celebrate Michael Edwards’ (Julie Blakely’s son) first communion.  Michael spent several sessions with Pastor Mike in preparation for this time.  He is taking Jesus’ commandment to “Come to the Table” seriously as we all should.  Michael and the rest of us, empowered by the Sacrament, leave communion wondering what we can bring to the table to better serve others as Jesus serves us.

Julie Prange, our Outreach Chairperson, has a special Rally Sunday Thrivent Action Team Project planned for September 13.  It involves purchasing hygiene products which will be given to The Gathering Place and Bienvenidos Food Bank to help individuals in need.  For more information, please read the detailed Rally Sunday Outreach Project information found on Page 6 in this newsletter.
