On Pentecost Sunday we honored our joint parish High School graduates.
From Faith we honor Nick Dobbe and from North New Hope Nick Gburek.
Nick Dobbe wrote: I am going to UW Stevens-Point for a degree in Theatre Design and Technology. I would someday like to be a sound engineer or a lighting designer for a theatre. If the chance arrives, I will go to University California - Los Angeles and study more there. My goal would to someday be part of a show in Broadway.
Nick Gburek wrote: I will be attending UWSP pursuing my general studies until I figure out what to major in. I will probably go into a computer related field. I will be staying home and commuting to school.
Pastor's message to our 2020 high school graduates
Help for the Homeless is a joint WELCA project collecting items for Evergreen Community Initiatives, specifically The Place of
Peace which assists people in need.
Pictured from left to right are Betsie Graham, Gail Allen and Tiffany Krueger who was present for the endowment grants at Faith.
For those of us on the Extended Ministries Endowment Fund of Faith Lutheran Church the fourth Sunday of March is probably the
highlight of our year.
On that day we are privileged to grant funds to organizations who endeavor to help others thanks to Ralph Colrud who made this possible by gifting the congregation with $100,000 for this express purpose.
Only a constitutionally mandated percentage of interest is used for these grants so the fund will remain solvent in perpetuity.
This year we are pleased to have photos of the distribution.

This is the gorgeous raffle quilt raffled for the Faithful Knotters Project Comfort.
Due to its popularity Hops & Hymns will continue monthly at McZ's Brew Pub, Main Street Rosholt, from 6:30 to 7:30 PM on the 2nd Thursday of every month.
Thanks to Mark and Tammie Ellingson for the Little Library at North New Hope Lutheran Church. Drive, bike, or walk by to leave or take books.
Please remember those less fortunate than us.
Baskets are located in the narthex at Faith for the collection of food and other household items.
These items go to the Rosholt Food Pantry who distributes them to those in need.
You might think there aren't many in our area who are in need..........but you'd be wrong.

A HANDBELL CHOIR?
Even in large cities churches that sport handbell choirs are few and far between. The Stevens Point/Plover metro area, which population exceeds 35,000, can claim only two churches that have handbell choirs. They are St. Paul's United Methodist and St. Paul Lutheran Church so it's quite a big deal for a smallish country church to muster enough dedicated folks to staff a handbell choir much less do a good job of it. The proof is at the links below!
The first link is for a video which shows the choir doing a portion of Silent Night.
The second link is an audio only file.
