First Place Families – Orientation Session Sunday, August 4 – between services.

On Sunday, August 4 there will be a brief orientation session for Central members and friends who are interested in helping to prepare and serve

dinner and/or breakfast to the First Place Families exiting homelessness. Central will serve meals at this site during the interval

Monday August 19 through Sunday August 25. If you are interested in helping the First Place families by preparing/serving a meal or by donating food, please join us on Sunday August 4 as we explain the new arrangements and the procedures we’ll follow at The Annex. Grab some coffee and a cookie at the Welcome Table after the 8:30am service, or come early for the 11am service, and join us in the Library!

School Supplies Needed:

Looking ahead… Our Mission of the Month for August will be School Kits for Lutheran World Relief.

These school kits are packed in draw string backpacks which are then shipped overseas to distribute to school children in remote villages in faraway places.

Each kit includes VERY specific items. If you stumble upon a great sale for school supplies and would like to donate to this mission project, the items requested are:

FOUR 70-sheet notebooks of wide– or college-ruled paper approx. 8 x 10.5 inches (no loose leaf paper); ONE 30 centimeter ruler,

or a rule with centimeters on one side and inches on the other;
ONE pencil sharpener;

ONE pair of blunt scissors (safety scissors with embedded steel blades work well);

FIVE unsharpened #2 pencils with erasers;

FIVE black or blue ballpoint pens (no gel ink);

ONE box of 16 or 24 crayons;

ONE 2.5 inch eraser.


The CLC Book Club will meet on Monday, Sept. 9, 2019, at 7:00 P.M., in the CLCW Room to discuss We Were the Lucky Ones by Georgia Hunter,

an American who was 15 when she learned she was from a family of Holocaust survivors. Thus, began her quest to uncover her family’s incredible history.

This thoroughly researched novel is based on her large, extended Jewish family’s true story. Separated at the start of WWII, they’d all miraculously survived

a war that annihilated all but about 300 of the 30,000 Jews from Radom, Poland. They were part of this 1% who survived!

This is a story of hope and love that triumphs against all odds. It is about their determination to survive, each trying to navigate his or her own path

to safety; and to reunite after being flung to the far corners of the world. It is about how, in the darkest moments, the human spirit can endure, even thrive.

While this is a story of survival, death is all around. Resourcefulness and luck contributed to this family’s survival.

The discussion will be led by Betsy Berg. Come join us!
