  Dear Friends in Christ,

Here we are entering the last month of summer.  Children may be getting a little restless. So … here’s a perfect solution … Vacation Bible School!

Our theme this year is “Rolling River Rampage.”  Lots of fun planned with Bible stories, fun crafts, music and dance.  To cap off the week, we plan a canoe trip (weather permitting) down the Red Cedar River on August 10th.  This is a shallow part of the river, from Sand Creek to the Highway 64 Bridge Rest Area, easily navigable for young families and not-so-experienced canoeists.  Everyone is invited to join the canoe party.  We gather at the Sand Creek Park at 5:30, to begin our canoe trip.  It takes about a half an hour to complete the trip.  I would ask, however, that you call either myself (967-2226) or the church office so that we can plan for the number of canoes needed.  There will be a picnic at the Rest Area, so come, join in on the fun!

On August 5th, we will again have a float in the Bloomer Community Parade, which will highlight our Vacation Bible School, “Rolling River Rampage.”  If you would like to ride on the float or walk along to distribute flyers and candy, please call the church office to let us know.  The parade line-up is directly after worship on the 5th.   

As the summer ends and we look forward to the fall season beginning, a Bible Study will be offered at the church, 7 p.m. on Wednesdays for 16 weeks.  The study is called, “The Greatest Story,” and will begin September 5, at the church.  All are encouraged to attend. 

We also have something else to celebrate this year.  At our annual Synod Assembly, delegates elected a new bishop. The Reverend Doctor Laurie Skow-Anderson will be installed as bishop of the Northwest Synod of Wisconsin on August 25, 2 p.m. at Bethel Highlands Church, 504 Frontage Road, Hudson, WI.  I will be participating in the installation service and members of our church are encouraged to attend.  Please pray for her as she begins this new call and pray for our mission in the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America. 

Sunday School will also resume in September.  If you have children, please encourage them to come … beginning 9th at 10 a.m.  Teachers and helpers are always welcome.  Please call me if you are able to help in this way.  It is an important mission in our church, so please pray for the children and staff. 

My prayer for each of you is that you have enjoyed the summer days and nights with family and friends … that you have taken some time to be refreshed and renewed in faith and in life.  Jesus promised this in the Gospel of John … “I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.”  It has been a glorious summer and we are all grateful for the abundance God provides.   

Thank you for your presence and support of what we are called to do “Sharing our Faith and Living Christ’s Love” with those we encounter. 

God’s Blessings!   

Pastor Susan
