"One Body...Many Members”
For just as the body is one and has many members,
all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ. I Corinthians 12:12

RALLY DAY IS SET FOR SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 10...There will be one joint service at 10:00am at FL. Our theme for the 2017-2018 Christian education year will continue our focus on the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation. The new banner will include the Reformation family tree – so that will look familiar to you – but it will also include the Reformation themes of “Word Alone – Grace Alone – Faith Alone,” along with Luther’s seal. In September you will see the new banners, posters, and bulletin covers with the logo of our new theme – we are very excited as we look forward to the new Christian education year 2017-2018 A.D. and continue our observance of the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation!
ON RALLY SUNDAY, the Joint Social Concerns Committee will sponsor a hotdog, chips and beans lunch following worship. Proceeds will go towards Food for Kidz. All are welcome! Plan now to attend!
