The Christian Faith, One Word at a Time:
For the next few weeks we will be following a sermon series on the Book of Romans. These lessons from the book of Romans read like a curriculum for St. Paul’s adult instruction class and provide an excellent opportunity for us to walk through the basic doctrines of the Church, one word at a time. Join us for worship this summer for this sermon series. The Christian Faith, One Word at a Time: Atonement, Righteousness, Reconciliation, Reversal, Buried, Battling, Longing, Praying, Chosen, Inseparable, Roots, Grafted, Awe, Sacrifice, Love, Freedom. Read archived sermons or watch any services that you missed online.

The camp this year will take place from August 7 –11. Each day from 1pm-4pm children will be instructed in the game of soccer and they will also hear about deeper truths shared from Holy Scripture. Our theme this year is a revisiting of the theme from our first year: Jesus Saves! All children ages 5-13 are welcome to attend. If you would like to volunteer or support the camp in any way please contact Pastor Kuschel.
Soccer Camp Meals: Daily meals for the volunteer coaching staff will be provided during the soccer camp. A serving schedule (much like previous years) is being put together, if you would like to volunteer a dish, other food items, or your time to this effort please contact Pastor Kuschel or Kathy Tepfer to find out how you can help. We are so thankful for the ladies groups who have headed up this effort in the past, but we would certainly welcome new volunteers to come forward to help support soccer camp in this way.

Danube Fun Days: Food Stand Volunteers
The 212 WELS Soccer Camp will be hosting a food stand during the car show in front of the Danube School on July 8th from about 10am – 1pm.

Little Lambs is also running a food stand at Danube Fun Days on Saturday, July 8th. The stand is open from 10-4. Volunteers are needed.

Look for our soccer camp and little lamb entries in the parade as well!
