This week we will go back and pick up the chapters of Genesis that we skipped last week and then build on that – LOTS to cover, but it all ties together quite well and sets the foundation for future weeks AND for many of the struggles that are still going on in the world today.  Please join us this Sunday at 9:00 am in our usual room in the Ballard Middle School as we talk about Abram (Abraham), Sarai (Sarah), Hagar, Ishmael, and Isaac.

Roger will be our lector this week and Judie will be bringing treats.  Thank you for your help.  The readings for this week are:

Genesis 16-18, 21 (parts of those chapters)

Psalm 111

Galatians 4:21-31

Luke 13:22-35

DON’T FORGET: Our annual congregational meeting will be Sunday, August 5, after the worship service.

 In your prayers this week:

The Tjernagels in Spain; Pastors Duggi, Swen, David, Dake, Moksha, Peter, Jonathan, and Jayasingh as they minister in India

Janis and Ieva Diekonts, Don Richman, and David Breidenbach as they conduct mission work in Latvia and other parts of eastern Europe.
The people of South Sudan and Ethiopia as civil war continues to rage – and for the South Sudanese Christians who have been forced to flee to Ethiopia

The children and staff at the Bethany-Good Shepherd Orphanage in Tanuku.  PLEASE prayerfully consider whether you could help out with a donation to help out the orphanage.

The members of the Lutheran Church in Gudipadu, Andhra Pradesh, as they rebuild their church.  Pastor Duggi is beginning a ministry to help aging women in their village.  Support of all kinds is needed.

Our nation and its leaders – for a return to God and the values on which this country was built

I pray that the rest of your week goes well, and I look forward to worshiping with you this Sunday at 9:00 am.
