After worship today, you will have the opportunity to participate in the Bread for the World offering of letters. See insert for more details.

Phil is planning to focus some of his summer sermons on topics suggested by the congregation. If you have an idea for a sermon, you can share it with him via email, nlucpastor@ak.net

We will pack food bags for students at Riverbend Elementary this Wednesday at 9 a.m. if anyone can help. This is the last distribution for the school year. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to this effort.

A delegation of 4 young people are going with Melissa to the Gather at the River conference in San Antonio, Aug. 6-9 to learn about LGBTQIA outreach and join the new reconciling youth movement. We need your help. Here are some ways you can help: (1) Donate Alaska Air miles, (2) Donate financially (Make the check to your church, memo: Gather at the River-Youth), and (3) Pray for us. Please contact Melissa for more info, Pastor.Engel.AK@gmail.com.

CPM is in need of NLUC talent for the following items:
Manse – we have ordered new windows and we can either install these with NLUC volunteers or pay the Contractor to install them. The expected delivery is towards the end of June. A great opportunity to save the Church some money!
Sanctuary – several members have expressed interest in replacing the lighting in the Sanctuary and upgrading the projection system.
Choir/stage area – in order to obtain better utilization of the front of the Sanctuary several members have asked this area to be redesigned.
If you are interested in helping with any of these, please contact Nico Bus at 789-3718 or nicowbus@gamil.com.

This Tuesday, May 26, we will be cooking and serving spaghetti at the Glory Hole. Please sign up on the sheet on the bulletin board in the fellowship hall if you can donate any food. There is also a signup sheet to cook and serve.

Work has started on a feminine hygiene project for girls in Guatemala. This is a project to make fabric items using a sewing machine. If you are interested in helping with this project, have a sewing machine and are willing to sew a couple projects, see Marion Gotschall for materials and directions after church.

The annual neighborhood block party will be June 7 after our 11:00 a.m. worship. This is for our church family and the whole neighborhood, so please help spread the word and plan to join the fun — rain or shine! We’ll close off and cover 11th Street in front of the church, and have a canopy in the side yard at the parsonage, to keep us dry. Hot dogs, burgers, condiments, and drinks will be provided. You are invited to bring a side dish, chips, dessert, or other item to share. Sign up on the bulletin board in the Fellowship Hall or contact the church office at 586-3131 or nluc@ak.net.
