Special Congregational Meeting
Sunday, July 2 – After Worship
The Church Council is calling a congregational meeting on Sunday, July 2, immediately following worship for the purpose of approving borrowing $100,000 from the Mission Investment Fund and authorizing the Council Officers to execute the necessary documents. The loan will be used to pay the Flannery Construction Co. for the work completed as part of the Capital Appeal. The construction contract and work was previously approved by the congregation at a congregational meeting on March 26, 2017. The loan will be repaid with the proceeds of the Capital Appeal as pledges are received.
Should a quorum (8% of the voting/confirmed membership) be unavailable on July 2, the congregational meeting will be held the following Sunday (July 9) immediately following worship.
Mid-Week Summer Worship Here at GA
We will be offering an additional time of worship for those who may not be able to join us on Sunday mornings. On the Wednesdays between now and July 26, we will have a 30-minute service on Wednesdays at 12:30 p.m.; a time for song, prayer, scripture, and Holy Communion. Everyone is invited to join us.
2017 Summer Musical at Gustavus Adolphus
We invite children and youth in elementary and middle school to be part of our 7th annual summer musical at GA Church. The musical will once again be directed by Kim Huseonica and Phil Holzman. Rehearsals are held here at GA every Wednesday night from 7:00-8:00 p.m. Performances of the musical will take place on August 25 and 27. (A full schedule of rehearsals and performance information will be handed out at our first rehearsal in June.)
This summer’s musical is called In the Image. We hope that many of our young people in elementary and middle school will want to be part of the cast of this summer’s musical. Friends are welcome and encouraged. If you missed the first rehearsal on June 21, it’s not too late to join the cast. Come to our next rehearsal on the 28th at 7 p.m.
Community Meal and Sing-Along…Saturday, June 24
Join us on the evening of the 24th for our monthly meal at 6 p.m. and then stay for a sing-along at 7 p.m. Come for one or both!
Picnic Blanket Theology
Pastor Jo is starting a 4 day “Faith” study, using Sparkhouse materials (an Augsburg Fortress brand). There is an accompanying journal that allows creativity and a place to write notes and comments. This study is focused for moms and dads who are at home with kids during the day, and would like to have a time to get out and study together, but of course anyone is welcome… just as long as you know there will be distractions with kids in attendance! Join us June 27-30 from 10-11 a.m.
Pastor Jo has about 5 picnic blankets, but bring your own so that we have lots to stretch out on – or a lawn chair if that would be more comfortable. If the morning is not a good time, tell me what works; and if the majority agree, we will change the time. Please let Pastor Jo know if you think you will be coming, and if you would like a journal. We need to purchase in advance ($15 per journal).
Yoga…Monday at 6:30 p.m.
Yoga practice on June 26 will be held either at Audubon Park (29th & Fillmore St. NE) or here in the Narthex at GA. Class is from 6:30-7:15 p.m. and the specific location will be announced by 5:00 p.m. on wairakayoga.com. Cost is $5.00. All are welcome…even beginners!
