Good Gifts Update

In January and February, we were collecting monies to buy a fish farm through the ELCA Good Gifts. It costs $250 and as of the end of March, we haven’t met this goal. We are about half way there so we are extending this goal for another month through April. Please help us meet this goal. Mark your gifts to Good Gifts so the funds are deposited to the right fund. Thanks to all who donate to this cause.

Owls Meeting Information
The next meeting for the OWLS will be on Tuesday, April 19th. We will be going to Smoky Mountain Pizza at 980 E. Fairview Ave., Meridian. I have reserved the room for us so hopefully there is no mix-up again. We will meet at 11:30 AM. See everyone there!

This monthly Bible study meets the second Wednesday of the month. It is published in the Women of the ELCA’s publication, “Gather Magazine.” But you don’t need the magazine, just come and join in. For the next two sessions the study is authored by ELCA Bible scholar, Mark Allan Powell. If you want to study ahead a little, you can read John 4: 5-30 & John 10-10.
Free Meal Update

The last free meal of corned beef, cabbage, red potatoes, and carrots was a big hit. The diners came in very sporadically but at the end of the day, we served 22 diners and sent 18 meals home. At the very end when we were taking the sign down and closing up, one last car full of people came by and took all the leftovers. So all the food went to good use. The next free meal will be on Saturday, April 30th from 12:00 – 1:30 PM. Those that want to help cook can show up at 10:00 AM and those who wish to serve and clean up can show up at 11:30 AM. Thanks to all who help with this endeavor. We couldn’t do this without your help.
Sandwich Sunday Update

April 10, 2022

Speaker Announced for Adult Education.

Hi All -
I have secured a speaker for adult education on Sunday, April 24th after service at 9:45. His name is Rex Young. This is a link to his book Diary of a Caregiver: The Dementia Journey: Young, Rex T: 9781984511447: Amazon.com: Books.

He is a very well-spoken older man who wrote this book to share his experience. He lost his sweetheart in June, 2018. This is the write-up from Amazon:
Diary of a Caregiver: The Dementia Journey Hardcover – February 28, 2018
 
In 2009, my wife of over fifty-eight years was diagnosed with dementia with Alzheimers symptoms. My caregiving responsibilities began before that time and continued until her death in January 2018. She was provided care in her own home. As time went by, the caregiver duties became more and more demanding. It was truly twenty-four hours each day and seven days each week. My sweetheart was referred to the hospice program as a patient beginning in 2013 with a life expectancy of six months or less. At the time of her passing, she had been a hospice patient for four years, eleven months, and five days. The Diary of a Caregiver begins with her entry into the hospice program and continues until her death. Caregiving can be very frustrating at times as one never knows what to expect or when to expect it. The Diary of a Caregiver identifies many of the problems and frustrations associated with care of a dementia patient. It also identifies different techniques and solutions to some of those problems. It should be of interest to anyone who is involved in caregiving, especially those who are just beginning.
 
Rex Young will discuss his book on Sunday, April 24th after early service at 9:45 in the Forum. Please join us for stories and discussion on a topic that is close to and experienced by many people.

WHAT IS A HYBRID CHURCH?
WHAT IS KING OF GLORY’S VISION FOR THE FUTURE?
 

How well we remember two years ago when the pandemic changed our world. King of Glory celebrated the Resurrection of our Lord “virtually” behind CLOSED doors, sheltered in our homes! 
        Last summer, with congregation approval, we began a major upgrade of audio and visual equipment which would allow for enhanced worship experiences. The equipment is now arriving on a daily basis; contractors are finishing wiring and cabling and we are closer to celebrating “new” ways of church!
Is the online world real for the church today? Yes! It is a place where real ministry happens and genuine community comes together as a “hybrid” church. King of Glory has started with on-line worship, on-line studies, and on-line meetings. King of Glory continues with on-the-ground worship services, in-person activities like coffee hour, community free meals, weekly quilting.
You are invited to continue to “wrestle” with the questions of how we can adapt our ministries to be a “hybrid” church during the adult forum on Sunday April 10, between services. The focus of the conversations is based on the book, Becoming A Hybrid Church by Dave Daubert and Richard Jorgensen. (Copies of this book are available at the church.) The authors take readers through an overview of several areas of congregational ministry and reflect on ways on-the-ground and online ministry can work together. The first session on April 3 wrestled with how King of Glory uses "social media.” Is social media a replacement for communication methods that have been used over the years? No! Hybrid is NOT a replacement—it’s a “both and” way of conducting ministry.
While the time is short during these discussion sessions, visions and dreams and ideas and questions have begun to flow abundantly! The realization of the potential of future ways of “being church” promises to strengthen us where we are now, and encourage us to reach out creatively and with boldness! Join us!
Remember Pastor Connie’s first Easter sermon with us last year—Jesus has already gone to Galilee and is waiting for us! So let’s go—let’s “touch” the future! Looking forward to your input!
 
 
KOG Question

I am in possession of a book titled: "Railroads Through the Coeur d' Alenes"
This book was placed in my church mail box by person(s) unknown and I'm not certain if book was meant as a loan for me to read and return or if the intention was to give book to me.
