A Note from Jan Thrun: We are very pleased to let everyone know that Jan Thrun and her daughter, Lisa Deen, made it back to Bainbridge Island last weekend. Jan says, “Thanks for all your prayers, cards, notes and phone calls wishing me a speedy recovery. They all helped so much in bringing me back home. I am feeling better each day but still tire quickly. I hope to see you all soon when I’m able to return to church.”
Vince Mattson’s 100th Birthday!: Vince Mattson turns 100 on August 7th! Let’s shower Vince with birthday cards to help him celebrate this momentous occasion.

Holden Evening Prayer: Our next Holden Evening Prayer service will be on Saturday, August 12 at 5pm.
LWR School Kit Supplies: Summer may be only half over, but the school supplies sales are already here! The Rachel Circle will be putting together School Kits for Lutheran World Relief over the next few weeks. When you are out and about (or online) to shop, please consider purchasing some of the items that will help school children around the world. More information about the LWR School Kits, including the list of needed items, can be found on the hallway bulletin board. If you still have a list from last year, please note that we will not need rulers this year.
Altar Flowers: The altar flowers this weekend are given by Benay and Lynn in honor of their 52nd wedding anniversary.
Prayers are Requested: for Evan Stoll who is now at Martha and Mary recovering from his stroke; for Jan Thrun who is grateful to be back at home where she is slowly regaining her strength; for DeMar and Pat Sather who are transitioning to the Fieldstone community.
