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. To donate, go to https://secure.myvanco.com/YQ7W/campaign/C-Z9MW 

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 ‚Äď 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.

Mask Update - Church Council met last night and the decision was made to remove the mask requirement for the sanctuary. With the decrease in the number of positives and hospitalizations for our county, the Council felt that this was the right decision. The Council does recommend if you are unvaccinated to wear a mask.  If you will be working with children we ask that you wear a mask as children under the age of 12 are not approved for vaccination yet. 

Oktoberfest Sign Up Sheets are in the Narthex.  There is something for everyone.  If you don't want to be in the crowds, we have a kitchen job that would keep you inside. If you need a sit down job, Ticket Booths and Kids Area could use your help. The Food Booth is going to need a lot of volunteers.  The Beer Booth is fast paced and is always a fun time. Take a moment to sign up as we cannot to Oktoberfest without you.  

Pre-Oktoberfest Dinner- The Men's Club will be hosting a dinner on October 10th after service in memory of Carroll Elfstrom. This dinner is to get us in the Oktoberfest spirit.
