Within Our Church Family ...

Each year our church collects packages of socks and underwear to donate to the clothing closet at Portland's Transitional School. This year, we have moved the drive ahead in time to better coincide with back-to-school sales and to get the donations to the Transitional School closer to the start of their school year. The drive will run from July 30 to September 17.
All donations of socks, boys and girls underwear, t-shirts, camisoles and bras are a tremendous blessing to this effort.
This school serves homeless students in the Portland area, and their clothing closet is frequently the only resource that the children have for clean, well-fitting clothes. The contributions from our Sock and Underwear Drive are especially appreciated, because these foundation garments are often low priority in family situations where food and housing are uncertain.

We have a block of tickets reserved (on the shady side of the stadium) for the Hops vs. Tri-City Dust Devils for the 5:03 pm game on August 26. Tickets are $15 each. Add your name to the list in the church hallway and pay ticket fees to the church office.

Friday, August 18, from 4 to 7 pm. All invited to enjoy a few hours in the playyard with splash pools, a water slide and squirt guns. Light picnic dinner included.

Our Children & Youth Boards encourage our church families to send their kids to Camp Lutherwood during the weeks of July 30 and Aug. 6 this summer. Visit to learn more about this summer’s offerings.

We have a group camp site reserved for our annual family campout. Sign up under the hallway slatwall.
