Barrels of Blessings
Let's continue filling our food barrel! Our donations go to the food pantry at Bethany Lutheran Church. Any donations of non-perishable foods are welcome, but specific items are suggested for each month.
September: baby food jars, formula, and cereal.
Remember, any type of non-perishable food is welcome throughout the year. It will make us just as happy to give these items as it will be for them to receive the help. Thank you!

Vocal choir director, Gloria Hansen, and handbell choir director, Rachel Strand, are in need of singers and ringers!

Peru Interest Meeting: September 18th
Last year, ten Beautiful Savior members went to Lima to help the local Lutheran church enhance its ministry to the community. It is again our plan to go there this year with whomever might wish to help put on a VBS-like experience for kids and assist adults in learning English with prepared materials. Would you like to be part of this experience? Pastor Hillenbrand will be meeting with all who might like to attend on Wednesday evening, September 18th, from 6:30-7:30 p.m. Estimated cost for the trip would be about $700. Attending the meeting is not a commitment. Come and learn more about the trip.

Concordia Sunday: September 22nd
Our Fellowship and Evangelism Committee will be inviting students from Concordia University to enjoy worship and a concert with us on Sunday, September 22nd. Wendysue Fleugge, well-known and well-traveled Christian singer, will be featured as guest musician at our worship service and will also present a one-hour concert in the fellowship hall. Wendysue has shared her gifts with us before. Her unique blend of traditional and more contemporary singing is worshipful and thoughtful. Please sign up in the narthex if you can provide an egg dish, coffee cake, or fruit to be shared and enjoyed during the concert. Thank you!

Parents' Night Out: September 27th
Parents' Night Out will be returning soon on Friday, September 27th, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Children ages 2-10 are welcome to be dropped off for a couple of hours of fun playing games, making crafts, or watching a movie. A sign-up sheet will be in the narthex. Parents, please make sure to sign up no later than a week before the event. We are hoping that parents will take a turn volunteering to help with one of the Parents' Night Out evenings during the year. We are also looking for teens (service hours available) and other volunteers to help with these events.

Airfare/meal inclusive cost is $4449 per person/double occupancy. Likely leaving June 29th, 2020. Brochures are available in the narthex.

Board Games Wanted
We are collecting gently used board games to use with the Karenni families. Some will be helpful in teaching numbers, colors, math skills, etc., and some will be given to the families. Thank you very much!

Prayer Shawl Ministry
If you are a knitter, you are invited to become part of a Prayer Shawl Ministry for the benefit of those on our prayer list and for a mission project. You would be doing this on your own time and at your convenience. The pattern is very simple, and as shawls are completed, they are blessed by the pastor and then distributed. For more information, please contact Jo Fenske.
