THE TEMPLE POWERPOINT PRESENTATION

Will be every Monday evening at 7 pm in our new sanctuary, beginning September 14th.  This PowerPoint presentation shows beautiful pictures of the Old Testament Temple built by King Solomon and the New Testament Temple where Jesus taught. The Temple was built to honor God, point to Christ, the promised Savior, and house the Ark according to the instructions given by God. Drawn to Bible measurements, the illustrations show and explain all of the important features: the Ark of the Covenant, the veil, the Holy Place, the Most Holy Place, the bronze pillars, the "Sea," the Bronze Altar, and the cherubim. This PowerPoint presentation includes more than 100 color slides.  Please join us starting Monday, September 14th 7pm in the sanctuary.

Illinois Valley Lutherans for Life will be having their annual Nut Sale from September 13th to October 11th  this year.  If you wish to order any nuts, please fill out a form along with your payment and give it to RUTH WERRIES or TIFFANY GEHRKE.  Illinois Valley Lutherans for Life appreciates all the support you have given them in the past.  This group of Lutheran Christians raises money to instruct the public on the sanctity of human life issues.  If you value life and wish to support our mission, please help by ordering some pecans and/or other nuts from Lutherans for Life.  Thank you for supporting Life.
 

SHOE BAGGING

HANDS ARE NEEDED for shoe bagging Wednesday, September 9th, at 1:00 pm on our school stage.  Shoeman Water Projects will pick up shoes the next day.  With the load being picked up, the Jacksonville community has now donated enough shoes since January 2010 to fill a semi truck.  Thank you for your support as we help those in need.

LUTHERAN'S FOR LIFE

MEALS FOR NEW HORIZONS NEEDED

The Evangelism Committee is looking for volunteers to commit to providing supper at New Horizons (Jacksonville's warming and cooling center at Grace United Methodist Church) one evening each month.  We would like for that individual to be responsible for the meal on the fourth Tuesday of the month they select.  That person could then prepare the meal individually or ask others to assist them in providing the meal.  The evening meal is served about 6:00 p.m. and recently there have been 20 to 30 diners.  Please let Paul Reither know if you are willing to commit for any month from June - December 2015.  Thanks for your help

SCRIP NEWS

Scrip is a fantastic way for you to earn money for our church and school by doing nothing more than making your regular retail purchases.  You purchase a gift card to a participating retailer, and the Scrip Center gives us a percentage of the face value of the card.  It doesn't get much easier than that!  Orders may be left in the SCHOOL OFFICE.  Thank you for your continued support of this PTL sponsored program.
