Prayers for Lloyd Stucke who had a heart attack last weekend and to make matters worse for he has been diagnosed with Covid. Because of Covid they have not been able to do much testing but he will be getting a CT-scan. He still is in a lot of pain but is resting comfortably. Dar is doing well and tested NEGATIVE for Covid. Please pray for Lloyd and Dar in the days ahead as they research the damage to his heart. Pray the doctors will be able to diagnose and create a plan to calm the pain and heal the heart.   
 Send your Spirit upon them all and give them the help they need. Send your healing power and bring joy and strength back into Lloyd. Give Dar the strength and patience she will need to endure the days ahead.

The ELCA National Youth Gathering is right ahead of us! This next year it is being held in Minneapolis, Minnesota.    
The event takes place on July 23-28, 2022
Every three years, 30,000 high school youth and their adult leaders from across the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America gather for a week of faith formation known as the ELCA Youth Gathering. Through days spent in interactive learning, worship, Bible study, service and fellowship, young people grow in faith and are challenged and inspired to live their faith in their daily lives. We are currently registering our youth and will let you know how many will be participating! Cost per participant will be about $1400.  In the next months we will be having a number of fund-raising events to help off set the cost for each family. 
  If you would like to sponsor a child or make a donation please see Pastor Tony or place the gift in the offering plate. Thank You for your support! 

Each Sunday the youth are continuing to sell collectibles at a table in the narthex. The funds collected from this drive goes toward the cost of each youth attending the National Youth Gathering in July of 2022. Come and support the YOUTH of your church!   Thank You!
