During the last Clothes Closet, Thrivent provided funds to purchase first aid kits to our clients. Volunteers are shown holding up the kits. Ouch! Does any one have a bandaid?
The Food Pantry continues to serve our community. Recently, Thrivent Financial for Lutherans provides extra funding for milk. Through Gleaners, we are always able to provide fresh vegetables or fruit to our clients.
10:00am, kids return for puppet show, snacks, music and lessons.
Cooking classes were offered during the Food Pantry for 6 weeks. Graduation was Friday, July 24. There were more photos of the proud graduates under “Recent Events”. Gleaners developed the “Cooking Matters” classes.
Sundays in the summer, the kids will be meeting in the Sunday School Garden. Come in gardening clothes. There will be dirt!
On Sunday, June 14, the Sunday School of IACLC is asking for help to construct picnic tables for the Sunday School garden. If you build it, Sunday School members will paint it.
In addition to picnic tables, the Iroquois Children’s Garden is in need of stepping stones, entry arch (can be very rustic), and stumps for a seating circle. Maybe you’ve been storing one or more of these items just waiting for the right project. We plan to use the garden for Sunday School during nice weather. Our lessons will be hands on, built on scripture, seen in nature.
Thanks in advance,
Your Sunday School Gang

Dear Friends and Family of Iroquois Avenue Christ Lutheran Church:
God has blessed so many of us over this holiday season. IACLC has been able to help hundreds of people, bringing meals to their tables and warm clothes for the winter months. The church members and community friends have generously given hours of their time this year to ensure the local outreach of the church reaches many in our community.
Now is the time for IACLC to dedicate that same loving care to the house of God. As we move into the winter months we will be making much needed repairs to the sanctuary. For those of you that have been in attendance this year, you will have noted the need for new paint and plaster repairs to fix the damage to our sanctuary.
The church has started a fund to pay for the $28,000 in repairs needed. We ask each of our friends to think of what the church has brought to your life and to bless the church with a small donation to the fund to help IACLC on its way to its former beauty.
Please send your generous donation to IACLC:
Iroquois Avenue Christ Lutheran Church

Please join us for services on February 22nd at 10am as the Sunday school blesses us with the play: “Exit Stage Right”. The children have been working hard over the last month to perform this special play for all of you.
We look forward to seeing you.
