FAMILY BIBLE SCHOOL – AUGUST 7 THRU 11 (5:00pm to 7:15pm)
A note from Parkland Lutheran Church: Family Bible School is an opportunity for everyone, whether single/married, with/without children, to come and learn with the Family of God about their Savior and divine forgiveness, through the story of Joseph. Each evening we will have supper, devotions, Bible lessons, fellowship, crafts, activities, and opportunities to learn how you might carry on devotions in your own home. All are welcome. If you are interested in hearing more or are planning on attending, please help us plan by signing up here.

INSTALLATION SERVICE
You are cordially invited to the installation service of Pr. Steven Sparley and Mrs. Megan Enstad at Parkland Lutheran Church on Sunday, August 27, at 4:00 pm. A light supper will be served in the “Ark” (gymnasium) following the service. Please join us as we welcome our new called workers!

BACK TO SCHOOL ORIENTATION / ICE CREAM SOCIAL
This year’s Back to School Night is Tuesday, August 29 at 7:00pm. When you arrive you should go directly to your child’s homeroom classroom where you will have the opportunity to meet the teachers and to drop off your child’s school supplies and Earthquake Kits, which will lighten their load on the first day of school. Parents will also receive important information about the school year! Ties for the boys will be available for purchase this night. At 7:30pm we will convene in the “Ark” for an ice cream treat, followed by our 2017/18 orientation.

FRIENDLY EXCHANGE PROGRAM
Friendly Exchange would like to offer your family the opportunity to experience Guatemala in your own home. For 11 weeks, you could host a Guatemalan student, the same age as your child, as a member of your family; which means he will join in your daily activities and go to school. Through him, you can learn about a new country and culture, while you experience firsthand the beauty of diversity as seen from a child’s eyes. They also have a good command of the language and bring their own money. The group arrives September 22 and returns on December 9. If you would like to know more, contact Tami Driscoll to find out the location and time of the next meeting near your area or if you prefer, a personal visit at a convenient time. Tami Driscoll: (253) 677-3975 or tami.driscoll@comcast.net
