ALTAR FLOWERS: Now that we are back in church, we need flowers to brighten things up.  Do you have a special occasion that you could provide flowers, such as an anniversary, birthday, or a day to remember a loved one the Lord has called home?  There is a flower chart on the wall to sign up!  There are plenty of open Sundays this summer! Please indicate your occasion or let the church secretary know by Wednesday if you would like an announcement in the bulletin.

CHURCH PROPERTIES BOARD needs a few new, hopefully younger, volunteers.  We are shorthanded!  This is a great way to contribute to your church.  Tell Steve that you can help!

LOOKING AHEAD: Next summer we will gather for the Minnesota South District Convention June 17-19th. Our first order of business at KOG is to submit names for nomination to the various boards and committees. As a congregation or as an individual you may submit nominations for the District Secretary. The Nominating Committee is asking for names of pastors, commissioned ministers, and lay leaders for the 2024 Minnesota South Convention Nominating Committee. The district is also looking for a lay person to be nominated to the 2022 Synodical Convention Nominating Committee. Lastly, you have an opportunity to nominate pastors, commissioned ministers, and laity to the Board of Regents of Concordia-St.Paul. If you know of someone who might serve please contact the church office. At the Annual Meeting in November we will be electing a lay delegate to attend the Minnesota convention with the Pastor. If you would like this opportunity please submit your name to the Board of Directors.
