The Monday morning group meets at 10AM for fellowship followed by the Bible study at Lois' home. For directions please call Lois at 295-2577.
Hebrews 10:25, "Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching."
Adult Bible Classes are the perfect way to do this!
Board of Education - This is an appointed position. Heather Ludwig, who has been chairing this board since 2010, is stepping down at the end of this year’s VBS program. A new leader for our youngest members of Alive! Lutheran is needed. Please prayerfully consider chairing our board of education.
Board of Elders - Alive! Lutheran is in need of more elders. We currently have only two. Please prayerfully consider this opportunity and speak with Head Elder Roger Bigalke, Elder Ed Swingley or Pastor Lieske if interested in being an elder.
Church Council Officers - Alive! Lutheran needs to fill three officer positions: Treasurer, Recording Secretary and Financial Secretary. Information about what these positions entail is posted on the Org Chart in the Narthex. You may also speak with the current officers (Tom Gerold, Treasurer; Jeanne Ritari, Recording Secretary; Mary Johnson & Lisa Rowen, Financial co-Secretaries).
Drivers Wanted - Anyone who can provide a ride to and from church for some of our members, please let Pastor Lieske know.
Technical Team (Audio/Visual/Computer) - Running the computer (PowerPoint, etc.) & sound system at church. We currently have one individual, Josh McDermott, fulfilling all these tasks when needed. We would like to have at least 1 or 2 more people who can help out when needed. Any computer competent persons (teens or adults) are encouraged to respond! Please contact Josh McDermott or speak with Pastor Lieske if this is of interest to you.
