    • Scholarships—are you attending or planning to attend a Lutheran University in the fall? Email your interest in this scholarship to Pastor Rick by May 9th, so he can recommend you be considered.

    • Hope Crab Feed is back—save Friday, February 2, 2024 on your calendar and contact Kristina Garabedian if you would like to be on the planning team for this event.
