GOD’S WORK OUR HANDS, Sunday October 1, began with a short prayer service in the sanctuary before members and friends of King of Kings went out to be God’s hands in our community. During that time, we tied six quilts; wrote 36 notes to send to our military and first responders; assembled 85 personal hygiene kits, and filled a 33-gallon bag with new socks and underwear for Stand Up For Kids; cleaned up around a local creekside area, collecting 16 bags of trash and four shopping carts; and crocheted waterproof sleeping mats for disaster and homeless victims. Many thanks to Thrivent for giving us two Action Team Grants that helped us outfit the personal hygiene kits and also pay for lunch. Thanks also, to Chris Hall and Jan Hall for coordinating the day, and to those who headed up the various projects: Joan Bockman, Sandy Darrow, Mary Ellen Jones, Margi Knebel and Curt Spiller.

FALL MUSIC FESTIVAL, Sunday September 10,
 was an extraordinary day at King of Kings, with our worship service at 9:30 filled with music from start to finish. Presented by the musicians and choirs of King of Kings, it included anthems, canons and songs from our Chancel Choir, Chamber Choir, Bell Choir, Band, King’s Kids, and more. Special thanks to Michael Blinco, Emily Holzer, Whit Aadland, Rachel Eichler and Julia Huff for their contributions.
THE KING OF KINGS ANNUAL CHURCH PICNIC was held immediately after the Music Festival Service. Members and friends were treated to hot dogs, watermelon, ice cream, cake and all kinds of fun and games.

SALE@CHURCH on Saturday August 26 was a big success, bringing in more than $2,000 for the King of Kings General Fund, Piecemakers and WELCA. Many thanks to all who donated items for the sale. And special kudos go to Judy Hove and Margie Knebel, for taking on the huge task of organizing and coordinating the event.
