All Saints Sunday: In preparation for All Saints Sunday, you are invited to submit photos of those who have died in the last year for a display reminding us of the cloud of witnesses that surround us in the faith. Please contact Brandi in the Church Office for more information.
Feeding 150 is our campaign to raise the last $1500 needed for Feed Galveston. These funds will make it possible to meet our goal of packaging 150,000 servings of food in 2021. We are asking for gifts that celebrate the number 150, such as $150, $50, or $1.50. Please prayerfully consider how God is calling you to be part of Feed Galveston.

Share Your Holidays Food Drive Our neighbors are hungry! Which ones? At least 15% of our neighbors are food insecure on any given day of the year. We can make a difference by collecting non-perishable food items and bringing them to the church for the Share Your Holidays Food Drive. These items will be collected through out November and will be delivered to Ball High School on Wednesday, Dec. 1 for the community gathering. (Feed Galveston will also be packaging 50,000 servings of food in the Ball High School library! That same day – all high school volunteers.) Pick up a grocery bag at the church to help collect items or deposit your items in the food collection boxes in the Parish Hall building and the Narthex.
Hold the Date: The Bach Society of Houston will offer an organ spectacular on Saturday, November 6, at 3:30 pm in the main sanctuary of Frist Lutheran. "2 Organs, 4 Hands, 4 Feet" will be offered in memory of Harold Matthias, a former member of Christ the King Lutheran, Houston, and a descendant of First Lutheran, Galveston. This will be a fun celebratory spectacular for all ages.

The Church Council reviewed the COVID-19 numbers for Galveston and Galveston County and changes the policy to masks are highly recommended if you are not vaccinated. This change reflects that we have seen a decrease in the numbers of hospitalized and positive individuals in our county. 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.
HOME Holy Communion Package: If you need home communion supplies as you worship virtually, please contact the Church Office as 409-762-8477 to arrange for your package of wafers.
