Corban, and Tzuriel) served at “My Father’s House”

And this was
just in the first
day!!! These kids have a full week to do all of this

CHURCH MAINTENANCE Wednesday, August 7—9:00 a.m.
We are still working on making sure that the bushes are all trimmed up and so far, so good. While
the summer wears on, we also hope you’ll have time
to help us weed the yard. At times this summer we’ve
resembled a vacant lot with all of the dandelions that
have invaded the grass. The mowing
takes place regularly, but the weeding
only happens on Church Maintenance
Day. Please, NO ROUNDUP weed
killer allowed. Come out, enjoy the
sun we hope, and have fun fellowship
with other church members. Coffee
and snacks provided!
BLOODWORKS BLOOD DRIVE
Our next blood drive will take place on Monday, August 5, from 12:30-6:30 p.m. (they take a break for
lunch from 2:30-3:30 p.m.). We are still experiencing a
nation-wide shortage of blood and blood products.
Please consider coming out and donating at this
crucial time when we’re in hurricane season and expect
to need to ship blood to other states who need that
blood. The donation takes about an hour; platelet
donation takes about two hours. Coffee, juice, snacks

PRINCE OF PEACE LUTHERAN CHURCH
CHURCH COUNCIL MEETING
June 11, 2019 Members Present:
Pastor Conrad Tollefson
Pastor Sam Sseba
Dave Hill, President
Meeting called to order by Dave Hill, President.
Devotion from Luther: Titus Chapter 3: Here is a
sweetness of life, not only goodness but kindness.
Pastor Conrad Tollefson – reflections on how we can
make a difference one visit, one person at a time and
how that changes not just that person and us, but the
whole world. We then prayed the Lord’s Prayer and
Minutes presented by Sam. Moved, seconded,
approved unanimously with one spelling correction
(David Bock’s last name).
TREASURER’S REPORT: Mark was happy to
report our giving was not down the usual amount for
this time of year. We are approximately $1,650 over
our usual expenses, but giving is up $9,300, so we
are in better shape due to higher giving. Mark
stated he wants to go back and take a closer look at
PASTORS’ REPORT: Pastor Conrad began with
the fact that our bees are back and it is good to see!
Pam interjected that due to last year’s severe
weather these are new colonies and that, in general,
honeybees are nonaggressive, so if people want to go
take a look you can get within a few feet and the bees
will just fly to and from their hives and you can
witness this in person. Mariners tickets are available
for June 19, and there are some extra tickets
available. Also reported by Pastor Tollefson was
that we had Tonya Seaberry from Des Moines Police
walk the grounds today going over safety topics.
Parallel to that we are looking into security system
upgrades. Pastor Sam commented on confirmation
and how beautiful it was to see our wonderful
confirmands at the altar on Sunday with the
blessings and laying on of hands.
WELCA – No WELCA meeting this month. The
Kindness circle is meeting on their regular date in
June, July, and August, and all women of the
congregation are invited.
YOUTH: Saturday night was a great night at POP
with the talent show which was exciting and well
received by approximately 60 people in the audience.
Confirmation was on Sunday and, as already stated,
was a wonderful service for the congregation and our
three young men who were confirmed, Anthony and
Daniel Stojack and Corbin Sseba. Congratulations to
QUILTERS: On Sunday, June 16, our quilting
ladies will be presenting a quilt to Casey and Christy
as a wedding gift.
PUGET SOUND ENERGY – Emergency
Generator Proposal Update: We were in the process
of applying for a $50,000 grant to put in a generator
here at POP. The bid has been received back for
$54,700 plus tax plus connecting to gas. However,
due to additional costs and after careful
consideration, it has been decided against pursuing a

project that might well exceed $60,000, especially
since it was not in our original emergency
EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS STORAGE
CONTAINER: Thoughts on painting and repair.
Working on bids and proposals with regard to safety
of the project, what the project will entail, including
sandblasting as preparation (rust) and then painting.
The design for the container painting project has
been donated by one of our congregation members
who works as a sign painter.
