July 2018


We often talk about the lazy days of summer because there is less scheduled at church and we are not in the normal routine of getting the kids up and fed and off to school.  It is a time to relax with picnics and vacations. But for me summer is one of the busiest times of the year.  Preparing for all the vacations and family reunions etc. and then going to them all keeps me busier than ever.  Plus add in yard work and gardening.  I find summer not lazy at all.   Whatever kind of vacation you might take do not take a vacation from God and your daily time and weekly time in worship with Him.  He is your guide and strength to make it through those busy days of summer.


WELCA members are not taking a vacation although some circles do not meet for Bible Study during the summer –but others do.  Please watch the bulletin, this newsletter, and our church website, for where the bible study will be. 


Our Savior’s WELCA is in charge of the Fall Retreat this year. We are meeting and planning for the Bear Butte Conference Fall retreat at Outlaw Ranch September 7-8, 2018.  Our theme is going to be “Grow Joyfully”.  More information will follow in future newsletter articles. 


One interesting bit of information Global Health Ministry is starting a suitcase ministry. How can you help? If you are visiting garage sales this summer, please look for large suitcases around 62” inches in circumference.  The older ones work great.  These are being packed with needed medical supplies and equipment and taken overseas.   There are so many ways to help those in need.  Laura Campbell, Deacon may have more answers to any questions you may have.
