From the President, Bob McKinney

Sleep in Heavenly Peace…The blankets that are displayed on our choir loft rail are blankets hand-made by the Howland Scope’s Needle Arts and Crochet Group.  They started to make these the first of May 2023 to help out an organization called Sleep in Heavenly Peace.  This group of people started making wood beds when they heard of children sleeping on floors.  They would like to invite Living Lord Lutheran Church to join them in donating twin size blankets and bedding and twin size large blankets and bedding.  We will be collecting until the first part of October 2023 just before the cold weather hits.  If you would like to participate, please place any donations on the table in the hall.  If you have any questions, please contact Judy Shaffer.


Church Information…Please remember that you can obtain church information from the monthly Lamplighter Newsletter, the Constant Contact emails you receive, on the church website (, on Facebook (, and postings on the church bulletin board.  Church Council Meeting minutes are posted on the bulletin board and sent out via Constant Contact.  We would like to see a better “open rate” when we send information to you via Constant Contact so that we know you are being informed of the activities that are occurring at the church.  If you have any other suggestions on how best to reach out to our parishioners, please see a Council member.
