“And the days dwindle down to a precious few: September, November… And these few precious days I’d spend with you. These precious days I’d spend with you” So go the lyrics to the great standard, “September Song,” sung by Frank Sinatra among others. It is a reminder of how wonderful it is to share Christian fellowship now and throughout the year. Here is a reminder of some of the things happening in this month of September.
School has started and school activities are in full swing. Fox Valley Lutheran High School begins its new year with a fresh, new expansion. You can hear about that expansion and other important issues at the General Board meeting on Tuesday, September 25 at 7 PM.
Because of the damage that was done to the athletic fields this past spring, FVL will be having an unusual homecoming since they will be playing the varsity football game (September 21) on a field away from home (TBD at this date). They will be having their frolic talent show on the Wednesday of that week (the 19th) at 6:30 PM.
We are going to be starting up our Bible class on Sunday, September 6. These classes take place after the worship service on Sunday mornings (except for the Sundays when we fellowship). We will start the year by concluding our look at the life and work of Martin Luther.
We have set aside a day to do some fall cleaning at church. This will take place on Tuesday, September 11. We will be starting our cleaning right around 8 AM. All are invited to come and help.
Pastor Lillo will be attending a pastors’ conference at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church in Freedom on Tuesday, September 27. The topics for discussion haven’t been announced yet.
Please remember that you always have an opportunity to help the residents of Brewster Village worship the Lord on the first Monday of the month at 9:45 AM.
We sincerely thank all of those who have helped out with our greeter program. It makes members and visitors feel more welcome as they come for worship.
This month’s scheduled greeters are: Kathy Schmidt (9-2), Tina Selig (9-9), Sam Sommers (9-16), Jerry Thern (9-23), and Leigh Thern (9-30).
