Greetings all, the above photo is from the Confirmation boating event this past weekend. 

Happening this week: 

  • Memorial and Celebration of Life for Marcus Dahn:  A Memorial Service honoring long time CLC member, Dr. Marcus Dahn, who passed from this life last December, will be held for family, church family, and friends, on Saturday, July 2, at 1:00pm at Christ Lutheran.   Pastor Chad will officiate.   Coffee and cookies will be served. Because Marcus very much loved music and dancing, in true Liberian fashion, the Dahn family intends to celebrate his 69 years on this earth, by hosting a party Marcus would have enjoyed.   Following the Memorial service, you are invited to Arts West, on W. State Street, from 3-9pm,  for a Celebration of Life gathering to include music, food, and libations.    

A note on the office transition:

  • If you have any pressing questions/reservations/orders, please email them to Katie Beth before noon Wednesday, July 6th so she can hopefully get those sorted.
  • The office will be closed July 11-15 while Katie Beth is on vacation.
  • We respectfully ask that you hold all questions and office visits until after the week of July 18-22 so that Katie Beth and Lucy Crawford can focus on office training. KB will still have some contact with Lucy after that week, so anything Lucy is unclear of will be able to be addressed by KB.  Thanks so much!
