    Friendly 411 Weekly--July 13, 2017

     We still have two weeks of summer camps, and it’s not too late to register. Next camp: Sport Camps. We have been blessed with great campers and fantastic staff at camp this year! If you have questions or would like to register please call 208-288-2404 today or email for more info. Crying is usually a bad thing at camp, but every week we’ve experienced kids that cry at the end of the day because they do not want to go home. Camp is a Blast! We hope to see you next week.

     500th Anniversary of the Reformation – Have you ever wondered what primary theological differences were at the heart of Luther’s actions that started the Reformation? We will be exploring the beginnings of the Reformation and the points of theology that were at its core. Join us in Pastor’s class on Sundays during the Sunday School hour beginning July 23.

     Missing! We are missing over 30 red folding chairs from the church. We are also missing 18 gold colored table clothes. If you have these items, please return them to the church office. If you are borrowing chairs, tables, etc. from the church, please let the office know before taking them.
