FIRST LUTHERAN YOUTH are fund raising to be able to go to Houston, Texas for the 2018 Youth Gathering. The theme is "The Cross Changes Everything!" One of their fundraisers is collecting receipts from any Dan's Super Market in Bismarck. At the bottom of your Dan's slips you will see a $ amount , that is the qualifying amount we can use to raise for their trip. We need $150, 000 of qualifying receipts to get a $ 1, 000 check from Dan's in return. As of January 25th we have $ $17, 186, not too bad for six weeks! Instead of throwing the slips away, please bring them to worship any Saturday evening or Sunday morning and drop them in the box on the table in the sanctuary. You can also send them to First Lutheran 800 N 7th St Bismarck, N.D., 58501 , or drop them off at the church office any day of the week between 9 am - 4 pm. The youth will be thrilled for your help! Tell your family and friends as well! Thank you!
