At the July 31 voter's meeting, Pastor Franzo brought up some changes that he would like to see happen at Grace Church. 
**He would like to see a...

**Mother's Room created in the back of the church.  This room would be for parents to take children that need some special care---ie changing, feeding, calming down, etc...  The east wall of this room would be one-way glass so that those inside could see out (and hear the church service), but those outside could not see in.  It would also serve as a place for children to go when the parents are in choir practice, bible study, etc...

**new message sign put up outside---replacing the old one that we have their now.  This would be a moving message sign.

**new sound system installed that is easier to work and actually works!

**change in the way we do Communion.  We would go back to the common cup--but also have the choice of individual cup.  He would like to start this on Reformation Sunday, October 30th.

**replacement purchased for the old communion-ware.  Carmen Viner offered to purchase this in her family's name.

**Past News & Notes from the Sunday bulletin will now be saved in the Members folder on this website.

Greetings Luther Families,



Greetings Luther Families,

I trust all is well.  On Wednesday, September 28, Pastor Kevin Lisk resigned from his position at Luther High School for the good of the ministry.

Currently, I am working on securing long term substitute teachers for his classes.

Thank you for your time.


God Bless,

Phil Punzel
