Operation Christmas Child – This year we are again offering you the opportunity to have an eternal impact on a child’s life by packing a shoebox for Operation Christmas Child. Each child who receives a shoebox hears a clear presentation of the gospel and receives an illustrated pamphlet in their own language that details God’s plan of salvation and how Jesus is The Greatest Gift of all.

We will be highlighting this ministry over the next four weeks and have resources to help you pack a shoebox. We have lots of pre-printed shoe boxes available or you can simply use a normal shoe box. We have “How to Pack a Shoebox” flyers to assist you with gift ideas.
This year we are also promoting "build a box online" as a great way to participate in building a box without physically shopping for items. Please use this link to our Build A Box Online goal page: https://sampur.se/2YwhpbM

Prayer is the most important thing that goes into a shoebox. Once you have chosen the age range of a boy or girl, you can pray while you shop for items to fill the box. This is a wonderful activity to do with your children or grandchildren.  Pray that the child who receives the box will have an open heart to hear the gospel. You might want to write a personal note to the child letting them know that you prayed for them.

Shoeboxes need to be returned to church on Sunday, November 14.  If you have questions you may speak with Connie Siebenrock or Karen Luehring.

CHOIR FOR REFORMATION SUNDAY  Please join us in the balcony for practices on Tuesdays, October 19 and 26, at 5:30 pm.  On October 31, the choir will sing "Built On The Rock" (CW #529).  Come sing praises to the Lord!


 GOD'S CREATION 2022 CALENDAR - Shepherd Women are once again selling the 2022 God's Creation calendars.  They make a wonderful gift for any occasion.  The cost is $7.00 each.  Please reply to this email or sign-up on the entryway table.  We will take orders until the end of November.  Thanks for your support!

RML Campaign News

Rocky Mountain Lutheran has some exciting news. We kicked off the Bold Faith, Bold Future Capital Campaign this past August and are grateful for the support we have received so far. As we strive to reach our goals for the purpose of building a new multi-purpose gym facility, we need your help. As of September 23, we have received over $1.45 million in gifts and pledges toward our first goal of $2.5 million. We ask you to prayerfully join us and make a gift or commitment (three-year pledge period) to our campaign. For more information or to make your pledge visit our webpage at www.rmlhs.net/Campaign or by scanning the QR code. At Rocky, it is our mission to bring teens closer to Christ. Thank you in advance for prayerfully considering making a campaign gift to RML.

Hello everyone! As the Lutheran Women's Missionary Society (LWMS) reporter, I wanted to share what the women of LWMS are doing for the Befriend A Mission (BAM) projects this year. We have two Home missions and one World Mission. The first Home mission is Living Savior Evangelical Lutheran Church in Hendersonville, NC. It is led by Rev. Paul and Cathy Zell. The second Home Mission is Living Hope Evangelical Lutheran Church in Ooltewah, TN. This mission is led by Rev. Eric and Jennifer Melso. The World Mission this year is actually in the U.S. It is the East Fork Lutheran School of the Apache Reservation in Whiteriver, AZ. It is led by Teacher Ruth Tainatongo and her husband Daryl.

I would like to send all three of them cards and or letters from the congregation to thank them and let them know we are thinking of them and praying for them. There is a table in the fellowship hall next to Pastor K's office with a list of the missionaries, pictures of them and their families, as well as more information about the specific missions. On the table you will also find several boxes of thank you cards, and a pad of paper to write thank you notes. Just include the name of the mission/missionary on the card or the note, put it in the blue box, and I will make sure it gets to the correct mission/missionary.

Please have your notes of thanks in the box by Sunday, November 1st. If you feel moved to help these missions financially, please speak with me and I will make sure those funds are added to those already collected through the circuit. Thank you in advance for your support. As always, let me know if you have any questions.

Your LWMS Reporter, Samantha Taki
