Lutheran Church in the Foothills is collecting donations for victims of the Maui wildfire disaster. LCIF will match monetary donations from the congregation up to $500 and will direct the funds to the Pacifica Synod for distribution to wildfire victims in Hawaii. Those wishing to donate should visit LCIF’s website for more information, including a link to donate.
It’s back-to-school time, and with that, Lutheran Church in the Foothills is assembling school kits for children in need. The church is accepting donations of the following items to be included in the kits: 70 sheet spiral notebooks, scissors with blunt tips and pink rubber erasers. Items can be dropped off during Sunday worship, or at the church office. The church is also accepting gently worn clothing and non-perishable food to help all ages in need.
LCIF would also like to invite parents and youth to a confirmation informational meeting on Sunday, Aug. 27 at 6 p.m. at the church. Pastor Rick Hall will lay out what the year will look like and discuss meeting times for confirmation classes. Topics to be explored this year include the sacraments, the small catechism and scripture.
Summer worship with Pastor Rick Hall continues to include programming for young children. Children’s Church is offered during 10 a.m. worship. Families should meet in the church’s sanctuary. After a message for the children from Pastor Hall, the kids head to the Youth Room for games, crafts and study.
