NEWSLETTER ARTICLES for the July Newsletter are due to Tracy next Sunday, June 17. Thanks!
TABLE TALKS Join us for Table Talk as part of our continuing church planning process. During fellowship time after the worship service TODAY, we’ll dedicate three tables to discuss three broad topics that emerged through previous planning meetings: Spirit (worship, & learning), Community (volunteerism & activities), and Home (physical property & improvements). In this stage of the planning process, we want to flesh-out specific ideas, outline challenges and solutions, and start to create action plans. These are informal chats, but we will have volunteer facilitators for each topic, and we will use templates to help guide the discussions. Our final Table Talk session will be next Sunday, June 17. For more information, contact Council President Scott Baumler.
PASTOR OUT OF OFFICE Pastor Hansen will be out of the office this week. In case of emergency during this time, you may call him on his cell phone, 319-210-4660, or the church office during office hours.

BUILDING HEALTHY FAMILIES Did You Know: Is your family watching movies or playing video games this summer? What messages are the children getting through these forms of entertainment? Parents and grandparents, you can be informed through websites that review movies and games from a Christian perspective, such as http://www.movieguide.org and http://www.pluggedin.com. The more you know, the better prepared you will be to guide the little ones entrusted to your care! Lutheran Family Service (Quad Cities Regional Office 563-359-0696 or LFSiowa.org)
