Building Healthy Families:  Did you hear about the woman who chose “incorrect” as her password so that when she forgot what it was, her computer would say, “Your password is incorrect”? Memory loss is just one of the sometimes humorous but often frustrating and worrisome accompaniments to aging. LFS’ Remembering Hope project helps people learn the difference between normal age-related memory loss and dementia, current treatments and supports available for memory care in old age and increasing opportunities for ministry among this growing population. Call today to bring this program to your congregation or organization. Lutheran Family Services

Stewardship Corner - "…offer your bodies as living sacrifices…be transformed by the renewing of your mind" (Romans 12:1, 2).  God gave us life.  He gives us the gift of wisdom that we might discern His will for our lives and intelligence to carry out His plan.  He gives us bodies in which to accomplish His work.  We are His hands and feet and mouth.  As stewards, we present our bodies and minds in service to God in grateful response for all He has done for us.
