Sunday Mornings at 9:30am
7:57 Prayer Join us in praying each day at 7:57 a.m., from wherever you are:
“Gracious Lord God, break into the busyness of our lives today as we lift up and offer Como Park Lutheran Church into your tender care. Bless and change us. Empower and enliven us for mission in your holy name, so that lives can be transformed, your word proclaimed and your love made known in our community and throughout the world. Bless us with a holy diversity and a holy unity. Make us powerful witnesses of your love, open to your Holy Spirit’s guidance, and firm in our faith and trust in you for the benefit of all people. In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.”
CPLC is part of the ELCA’s Day of Service this year! We have several church activities that people can participate in on Sunday. We are offering activities for all ages and abilities.
Join us for:
Building Blizzard Kits- You can help us package meal kits for seniors, so they will have meals available when inclement weather interrupts meals on wheels service.
Assisting at Lyngblomsten- Help seniors attend a concert. Lyngblomsten is hosting a musical performance on September 10th and is looking for people to help residents get to and from the concert on that day.
Serving at Family Place-
Help people in need by serving lunch at Family place on September 10th. We will leave after church and return before 2:00pm
This event is actually taking place on Monday, September 18th, but it’s always a good time to serve the community by giving blood. Local blood banks are currently running on emergency reserves, and your contribution is desperately needed.

Fall is coming up and Como Park Lutheran Church has an exciting fall schedule:
September 10th: Day of Service
This fall, CPLC will participate in the ELCA’s Day of Service, a day set aside to serve our community. Service Opportunities for this day will be announced.
September 17th: Rally Day and Return to Two Services.
The 2018 Guatemala trip from January 13th-20th is coming up and now is the time to decide if you are coming with us.
This year, we have a project of installing the stovepipes we raised money for at this year’s Mission Auction in each family’s home. We could use some extra hands. Also, any carpenters out there, we could come up with additional projects. Mostly, though, we share in learning about their ways, worshiping and praying together. We stay two nights in the village, and go on a tourist excursion afterwards. If you are interested, please inform Ruth Pechauer as early as possible. Cost for the entire trip – airfare, food, lodging – is around $1,800. Airline tickets need to be purchased well in advance, so let Ruth know of your interest by mid-August and make sure your passport has at least 6 months remaining before renewal.
Contact Ruth at email@example.com, or grab her (gently) in the narthex next time you see her.
Thank you for your compassion and generosity. Your caring gifts fill hungry bellies and touch many lives. Thank you!
In the Month of August, gifts of 100% Fruit Juice will be gladly received. On the Third Sunday (August 20th) we ask for donations toward Families in Need, supporting Lutheran Social Services of MN and Keystone Community services.
Please consider completing an Emergency Contact and Funeral Planning form. This may sound a little grim, but think of it as a gift to your family. It’s a comfort for them to know what you would like. Thinking about these things now and sharing them with your church on the Funeral Planning Form is something that relieves a weight.
These forms can be found at the welcome desk, and in the August issue of the Evangelist.
The form can also be downloaded by clicking here.
