Notes!

THE GARRY OAK INCIDENT:
Sometime after the Divine Service on Sunday morning, the northern-most Garry Oak in PLC’s front lawn lost one of its two major limbs. The trustees’ current plan is to remove the fallen limb and look for an arborist to consider the integrity of the other half of the tree. The Lord was gracious to us that no one was out there when the limb fell and that it wasn’t the limb closest to the church.

THE JUNE LYS EVENT:
The June LYS event will be held next Sunday, June 26, after the PLC 9:00 am summer service. Students will meet in the PLC narthex after the service at approximately 10:15 am. Students will then be transported by LYS chaperones to go on a hiking day trip. The exact area that we will be hiking, as well as a return time, have yet to be determined. If you have any questions, please contact Lynda Straling at 253.537.1901.

COMMUNION ON NON-COMMUNION SUNDAYS:
For those desiring to receive the Lord’s Supper on non-communion Sundays (the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month), the pastors will make themselves available. We will have a signup sheet in the Narthex so that you may write your name down and your preference to receive the common cup or an individual cup. After everyone is dismissed after church, then you may return to the altar for the Lord’s Supper.

NO MONDAY VESPERS ON 6/27:The pastors will be gone at Synod Convention on June 27, so there will be no Vespers Service that night.

NO MONDAY VESPERS ON 7/04:
Due to the 4th of July holiday there will be no Vespers Service that night.

PASTORS AT SYNOD CONVENTION & ON VACATION:
Beginning on Sunday (June 26th) afternoon through Thursday (June 30th) and again on Sunday, July 3rd in the afternoon through Thursday, July 7th the pastors will be out of town. In the case of a spiritual emergency, they may be reached by phone or text, but may not be able to respond immediately (due to being out of range or other activities). The Elders will be “on call” during this time.

Please see the Midweek Update for details.

Reminder Notes!

BOCKOVEN ORDINATION AND INSTALLATION SERVICE:
Candidate Bockoven’s ordination is scheduled at St. Luke in Mt. Vernon on Friday, July 15th at 6 PM. If you are able to attend, that would be a great encouragement, both to Candidate Bockoven and family, as well as to St. Luke. (St. Luke is located at 1524 E Blackburn Rd, Mount Vernon, WA 98274.)

PLC FAMILY BIBLE SCHOOL:
Please join Parkland Lutheran Church, August 8 thru 12, from 5:00 to 7:15pm, for Family Bible School. 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. This year’s theme will be “The Lord Gives His People Rest”, the story of Joshua. 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 to attend!

PASTOR GULLIXSON’S SUMMER FAMILY DAY:
During the summer months, Pastor Gullixson changes his family day from Saturdays to Thursdays. This will allow him to be available for visits on Saturdays.

Pr. Sparley will continue to take Fridays as his family days.

SINGLE-SERVICE SUMMER SCHEDULE:
Starting June 19 (Father’s Day) we will be consolidating our summer service schedule to a single 9:00 am service time (June 19 – September 4). The Holy Communion will be served on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th Sundays of each month. It will be available to those who desire it after the service on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month.

Rationale: 1.) Summer month church attendance often dips down a little and by combining the services, we will have a fuller church. 2.) It is a chance to become reacquainted with those members who attend “the other” service. 3.) It is an opportunity to become acquainted with members that you have not met yet.

ELHS SUMMER CAMPS:
Evergreen Lutheran High School is offering summer camps for Cheer (girls entering grades 1-8), Volleyball (girls entering grades 3-9), and Basketball (boys & girls entering grades 3-9), as well as a Science Discovery Day (boys & girls entering grades 5-9). For general information about these camps, please visit: https://www.elhs.org/student-life/summer-camps/

ELECTRONIC GIVING:
Parkland Lutheran Church has a convenient way to make your regular offerings. With our electronic giving program, you can easily set up a recurring giving schedule or make one-time contributions. Click here for more information.

  1. This is optional; the old system of contributing by check and cash still works.
  2. Members can still set something up through their banks so that regular checks are mailed in.
  3. If members choose this new option they might wish to consider still using their envelopes and indicate on them that contributions are given electronically (not necessary, but that way a young confirmation student sees regular contributions going into the offering plate.
