Do you enjoy making cards? Are you new to card-making but would like to learn?House of Prayer Lutheran Church sends out cards for various occasions and needs cards to send out. Nanette Hlavaty would like to poll those interested in attending a card-making class. This class is tentatively scheduled to be the First or Third Tuesday of the month at 9:30am. There will be a sign-up sheet to share your interest or contact Nanette (contact info is in bulletin.) In addition, if you have a loved one who would appreciate a card such as a shut-in, college student, active or retired military, active or retired First Responder, or employee of a Government Agency, please send their name and address to Nanette by September 1st


T-shirts are ordered; we will let you know when they come in. We will start asking for volunteers to lead and serve starting today. Stop by and sign up to be part of this HoP celebration! The areas of service identified include two off-site projects to help Seniors in need with yard work. On-site property concerns include - peeling exterior doors, mold on brick exterior of church, weeding front ground cover, painting fence by dumpster, and mulching fruit trees. Additionally, it is time to take care of interior property concerns - cleaning the chairs in the sanctuary, painting the Fellowship room. Members have already volunteered to come back after Service Sunday to steam clean floors and chairs as needed. We want to continue our Card Ministry. We need addresses of our shut-ins, our college students, our active military, and our active and retired First Responders. We would also like to send "thank you" cards to any member or family member involved in protection of our nation. We will also be offering a Bead Ministry project working with Outreach Uganda, a nonprofit that works with the women and children to overcome and break the cycle of poverty. Our First Responder appreciation is always a big part of our service. We want to expand our thanks beyond our local Fire and Police stations. We would encourage all members to drop off a "bag of appreciation" within their own communities - Seabrook, League City, Deer Park, La Porte, Friendswood, Dickinson, Webster - wherever we live and these people serve.

Blessings, GWOH Committee
