A note from the Pastor:
Dear e-News reader,

My family won't be in church this next Sunday because we are going to the Ordination of a close friend that day. Instead of hearing me preach, I have another Ordained LCMS Pastor filling in for me. He works for:
His name is Pastor Gary Bauch. Please make him feel welcome (as I know you will). It is always interesting to hear about different ministries that are going on around the world. Feel free to use this as a reason to invite your friends and neighbors to worship on Sunday!

And when you invite them, please tell them to:
"Come as you are!"

In Christ,
Pastor Gary
(559) 284-3967 (cell)
Laundromat Ministry!
It is really easy!

1) Go to a laundromat and hang out.
2) Be yourself and have fun.
3) When people walk in, tell them you are from First Lutheran Church and that "we" would like to pay for their laundry.
4) Afterwards, hand them "A Church for Families" invite card to learn more about "us."
Bible Studies:
Ladies Bible Study!
Weds nights at 7:00pm
The ladies of First Lutheran Church are currently studying "Bless These Lips." Come and learn how, by God's grace, a mouth makeover can improve our relationships and affect our attitude toward life! We meet in the Hall!
Thursday Morning Bible Study!
The Christians in Corinth faced many of the conflicts that Christians today encounter as they seek to live their faith in a culture that contradicts Christian beliefs and principles.

Come and join us! We meet in the Church.
Sunday Morning Bible Study!

It should come as no surprise that an adversary fit to be called the "god of this world" and the "power of darkness" is a force to be reckoned with. And so he is. In The Great Deceiver explore a being so diabolical he will stop at nothing to separate us from God.

Pray Luke 10:2 at 10:02 every day!
Luke 10:2 Prayer!
It may be rainy and muddy outside, but God's harvest in ready!

Jesus said to those whom He had sent out, "The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest."
