Sunday School for all ages - 9:45am
Worship with holy communion - 11:00 am
The people of Low's warmly invite you to join our community of faith, as we celebrate the unconditional love of God which is Jesus Christ. Come and experience the joy of sharing in worship, learning, fellowship and ministry to each other, the community, and through our membership in the ELCA, the world! You can browse the pages above for more about Low' s Lutheran Church.
HYMN REQUEST CARDS are in the narthex in front of the suggestion box. If there is a hymn you would like for us to use one Sunday fill out a card and place it in the box. If the hymn is available from our current hymnals or our other worship resources we will use it during the 5th Sunday Service of the Word and Hymns or another appropriate Sunday.
PRAYER REQUESTS - There is a box for prayer requests in the narthex. Please put requests in the box so they can be collected before worship. Please note if you want them in the bulletin.
BBQ & BLUEGRASS - It's not too early to think about BBQ and Bluegrass. This year's event, on Saturday, September 14, will be a fundraiser for C.J. McGuire to help him and his family with ongoing expenses related to his cancer treatment. Set the date aside and make plans to attend and invite friends. Of course, we will need volunteers to help serve.

FEED THE HUNGER PACK-A-THON - Hosted by Friedens Lutheran Church - Scheduled for Sept. 7. Last year they packed over 14000 meals in two hours. This year they are hoping to pack 15000 meals. (What is needed?) HANDS: about 15 people are needed to pack as well as others to apply labels, keep the tables supplied and to pick up boxes. RESOURCES: each meal cost $.28 (minimum of 10000). Friedens has some seed money, but the more funds they have the more meals can be packed. If you are interested please contact Pastor John Mark.
CHURCH COUNCIL is currently investigating the possibility of purchasing an AED (automated external defibrillator), a portable electronic device used to diagnose life-threatening cardiac arrhythmias and treat them with electricity. AED's are made to be used by the average person, who can be trained to operate the device. Many churches and public places possess such devices and Low's would benefit from having one. Currently, there is memorial money available that could be used for this purchase (the estimated cost would be around $1,800). If you have lost a loved one and there is unused memorial money given in your loved one's memory in the Low's fund, please consider using the money to fund this purchase as a memorial. Let the pastor or Sally Davis, Council President, know if you are interested.
LUNCH BUNCH - Our next lunch bunch will meet immediately following worship at “40 West” (formerly Ramada Inn Restaurant) on September 22nd. There is a sign up sheet in the Narthex. Sign-up and save the date!!
