Dear Members and Friends of Lutheran Church of the Living Christ,
Grace to you and peace from our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Happy Father’s Day Weekend to all of the Dads in our community!
The Men’s Ministry will be gathering together for a work day on Thursday, June 19, 2014, beginning at 6:30 p.m. Because of the nature of the work, which will focus primarily on preparing the floors for installation of the new flooring by removing some of the old heating units that are no longer operational but will cause problems for the installation process, we are asking that only high school youth and adults be involved in this project. Although it is an activity sponsored by the Men’s Ministry, high school youth and women who have interest in this project are welcomed to join the Men’s Ministry.
July 4th update from Deb Zaidel:
We have all the Coke, Diet Coke and Sprite needed. We still need Mountain Dew, regular and diet, A&W Root Beer, regular and diet, and WATER. Last year we sold out of Root Beer first. Diet A&W was popular because it was a caffeine free soda. Also need ice - If willing please freeze water in 2 liter or gallon bottles/jugs. We usually buy 20 bags of ice at $3.49 a bag. I will also have an "ice cube" on the coffee table at church for donations for the needed ice. Please don't forget to sign up for the pies - we average 30 pies, and sell all for a nice profit. Hoping for a nice sunny 80 degree day!
Thanks - Your Parish Life Committee
To help you prepare for worship on Sunday/Monday:
Prayer of the Day
Almighty Creator and ever-living God: we worship your glory, eternal Three-in-One, and we praise your power, majestic One-in-Three. Keep us steadfast in this faith, defend us in all adversity, and bring us at last into your presence, where you live in endless joy and love, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
II Corinthians 13:11-13

Women’s Group Gathering - The next Women's Gathering will be an afternoon gathering on Tuesday, June 17th at 1:30 p.m. for a Bible Study and refreshments at LCLC. Please contact Louise Thorin at 414-333-2183 with any questions.
July 4th Celebration - LCLC will once again participate in the community’s annual 4th of July celebrations at Firemen’s Park. Just as we did for the last few years, we will host a pie booth at the celebration along with selling drinks. If you are interested in helping by volunteering on the 4th of July at the event itself, that would be greatly appreciated. You could also donate water or coke products to the cause anytime between now and June 29th. After worship on June 29th, we will take inventory and make any additional purchases that we may need. We are collecting those items in the kitchen at this time.
Blood Drive - On Thursday July 10th from 1:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. Lutheran Church of the Living Christ along with St. John’s UCC & Our Savior UCC will be hosting a blood drive to benefit the American Red Cross. Every day hospital patients rely on generous blood donors – like you – for the precious blood products they need to treat a wide variety of medical conditions. If you are interested in participating in our blood drive as a donor or to volunteer to help the day of the drive, please contact Tim Zylka at 262-361-2447 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Florist Avenue Summer Lunch Program - We will be helping serve lunch for the Florist Avenue Lutheran Church Youth Summer Lunch Program the week of July 7th to 11th. The idea is that we prepare lunch for approximately 26 children and 6 adult staff at their big kitchen. We serve it to them at noon 4 days in a row, then Friday have prepared bag lunches for their field trip. We really need volunteers to help with this. We usually have enough volunteers for any one person to work one day (more if you wish) with another experienced volunteer. If you are interested in getting involved in a rewarding program of short duration, please give me a call, Linda Stehman at 414-434-0932. We also need food donations so see the sign-up sheet in the narthex for a full list of what we will need. Please have these foods at church by Sunday July 6th. Thank you.
Bunco Night - July 15th from 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. All women of the church and their friends are invited. Please remember to bring an almost new item for our prize table. Snacks and beverages will be provided. Contact Shelley Erdman at 262-502-4162 with any questions.
Have a blessed weekend!
