Saturday, August 12th: Tubing in Tomahawk, 5th grade and up. We will leave church at 8am and return Sunday after church service. Please bring: lifejacket, tube, towel, any clothes that you will need for the weekend, shower/bathroom things, money for lunch there and back, sleeping bag and pillow, swimsuit and anything else you can think of that you may need. Permission slips will be needed for those going (see below). A male chaperone is needed and if any other adults want to come, please do! It’s a fun, relaxing time just floating down the river. If you have any other questions, please let me know! You are more than welcome to invite others to come, they do not have to be a member of Faith. August 6 is the deadline to sign up.


“Place in their hands the Holy Scriptures”

   We’ve made this promise in front of God! Please help the Board of Christian Education as we look for those willing to sponsor a Bible to be given to our youth.

  Perhaps you would like to sponsor your own child, grandchild, Godchild, neighbor, or would like to sponsor a Bible that can be given to any of the youth of your choosing. All members in 4K (and those in 5K who did not receive a Bible in 4K) will receive a storybook Bible. Third graders are given a Bible that is wonderfully broken down for them to understand and 6th graders are given their Confirmation Bible.

  You will find a display in the Gathering Space (through Sunday, August 27th) where you can choose the child you would like to sponsor. There are labels provided that you will be able to write a special note on which will be inserted into the Bible so when your chosen youth receives their Bible on Rally Sunday they will know who was thinking of them.

  Place the youth’s name, label, and $20 in an envelope and put into the basket provided.

Thank You in advance! Please feel free to talk with Bridget Valleskey, Stefanie Kaderabek, or Nicki Behnke if you have any further questions.



Faith Lutheran has received a generous memorial bequest from Janice Jandrey. Janice’s deep love for God and Faith has led to a generous gift: the creation of a $50,000 matching fund to reduce our mortgage debt. We are so thankful to the family for this generous offer! The Janice Jandrey Memorial Matching Fund Drive has begun and will continue until December 31, 2017. All funds donated to the capital appeal during this time will be matched up to $50,000. (This includes all donations that have already been pledged, but the intent of the gift is to encourage additional giving). Every dollar you give during the fund drive is effectively doubled. Please see the display in the Gathering Space for more information.


Please Note: There will no longer be televised worship of our weekly church service on Channel 20 in Manitowoc. They have discontinued broadcasting it.
