Marcia Snavely received some exciting news from her contact at the TS Good Organ Company. The new Rodgers console is at the showroom and it is beautiful!  So many new features - the record and playback feature by itself is a revelation. Imagine, Marcia will be able to register the prelude, record it, and then go out into the sanctuary to hear it exactly as everyone else does. That alone will be an education in organ registration.

 

Music is such a strong part of our identity and we are fortunate that Marcia is helping to lead the way through this organ project.  She is excited about her surgery recovery - her cast comes off at the end of August - and is already getting back in the swing of things.

 

As you drive by the FLC, if you see Jake mowing the grass with our new tractor, wave HI!  It now only takes him 2 full days to mow the lawn on our 40-acre FLC property.

 

On Monday, August 20th, Federated will transition to the new phone system funded by the Rejoice & Renew Capital Campaign.  Our old phone system was over 20 years old, so the staff is looking forward to having some of the new features available in today’s phone systems.  During the cutover Federated phone service was down for a few hours that Monday afternoon.  After the transition we all will be adjusting to the new system.  We ask your patience and understanding during this exciting time.

 

The up-grading and renovation of the sanctuary provided our Federated Church family with the opportunity to honor those who have shaped our faith.  In the beginning of August, members came to the sanctuary and, on the foundation of the Chancel area, used markers to write names, draw, or otherwise express their gratitude to those who have been foundational in their faith journey.  There were even tributes from our far-away friends who still connect with us via Facebook.  These tributes will be covered with new flooring, but the names will stay as part of the foundation of our church.  Many thanks to Rev. Susi Kawolics for recommending this brilliant idea and for Paul Koepf for helping with the logistics to make this happen.

Inspire us to respond exuberantly to the needs of Federated.  
Fill us with generosity that we may share these gifts from you 
sacrificially, cheerfully and proportionally. 
Lead us to do your will in our pledging to this campaign.
Enable us to rejoice in your grace,  
and renew Federated’s ministries and missions.

Shepherd us to fulfill your desire in all that we are and do. 

Amen.
