Recycling Team Members Needed
For a number of years, Terri walker weekly stopped by to pick up what the church had that could be recycled. Since Terri and Shawn have moved to Little Rock for residency, we are in need of one or more individuals that would like to take on the role of recyclers.  Typically this will involve picking up paper items needing recycled and dropping them at the recycling center on 61st by Target. Your help will be greatly appreciated!  Contact Brandi Painter in the Church Office 409-762-8477 or 
flcg@firstlutherangalveston.com to inquire and sign-up!

Organ Concert! On Saturday, August 17th at 7PM(right after our regular Saturday service), The Reverend Norman Paskowsky will present an organ recital here at First Lutheran, using both our chancel and rear gallery organs. Pastor Paskowsky was Organist-Choirmaster at First Lutheran from 1976-78, prior to earning his Master of Divinity Degree from Wartburg Seminary in 1985. He currently serves several parishes in Western North Dakota. However, he continues to pursue his passion for the organ by playing recitals during his summer vacation time. Plan to attend this evening of music that will showcase our two wonderful pipe organs!
