School Supplies Collection! is collecting teacher supplies during the month of August.  Make sure to check out the July Monthly Newsletter for ideas on what to donate. Teachers end up buying a lot of supplies out of their own pocket and donations will go a long way in helping them out in the fall.

Unexpected ELCA Vice President ELCA Vice President William Horne, died unexpectedly from an apparent heart attack on Saturday, August 14th.  He was elected to the position when our own Carlos Peña retired from the position.

Please join in prayers for the comfort of his family and all who knew and loved him and thanksgiving for his life and ministry.

The Church Council reviewed the COVID-19 numbers for Galveston and Galveston County and re-issued the requirement of wearing masks in the church buildings. This change reflects that we are in the midst of a severe spike in the pandemic and that our local medical systems are stressed by the current surge. Please be mindful of the most vulnerable in our midst, as children under the age of 12 are not eligible for the vaccine at this time.
