The Scribe – September 2019, Volume 1

From Pastor Ken Hohag
Many of you have met our “pastor in residence”. Pastor Tsena, from Ethiopia, has been serving a Lutheran congregation in rural Wyoming for the past 3 years. He will be with us for a few months. Take time to get to know him by inviting him over for lunch or dinner. If you’d like to host him for some days in your house, please call the church office. Luther Movie Night Come join the Luther land trip group as we watch the story of Martin Luther’s Life, Tuesday, September 17 at 6:30 PM.

“Sometimes a light surprised the Christian while he sings” It is the Lord who rises with healing in His wings. `William Cooper We are inviting you to join us! We sing approximately twice a month at alternating worship times. If you are interested talk with Melanie Hohag. Choir will be starting September 4.
