Many thanks to Elias for his musical service to Bethel Lutheran Church. He has graduated from Richardson Talented and Gifted High School, and will be leaving for Singapore to begin two years of mandatory military service. Afterwards he will attend Yale NUS, majoring in Life Sciences. Bethel has been blessed by Elias' gifts, and we will miss him. Godspeed, Elias! And thank you.
Katie will be leaving for her third summer at Concordia River-Forest. She is pursuing a Master's degree in Sacred Music, and will be taking lessons in organ performance and classes concerning the musical heritage of the Lutheran church.

Help in Saving Postage Stamps for the “Stamporee”: Thanks go to all who have been donating your used/new postage stamps to the “Project Stamporee”. “Project Stamporee” is Texas LWML’s program that allows us to gather postage stamps (U.S. and foreign) and prepare them so that stamp dealers are interested in the purchase of them. THUS, we are able to have funding for shipping costs for Lutheran World Relief. Please place your stamps in the collection box on top of the greeting card counter near the drink machine. Stamps should go in an envelope or plastic bag, or just placed loosely in the collection box. PLEASE leave at least 1/4” of paper around all 4 sides. If stamps are torn, bent, or damaged in any way, they cannot be used at all. Contact Catherine Burkhard if there are questions or more information is needed. (There is also a brochure available on the LWML Display in the Narthex!)
