Humboldt Community Food Pantry

Due  to the Coronavirus situation, the following will be implemented for the Humboldt Community Food Pantry:
The Pantry will not accept any donations of food nor non-food items (clothing/household items/toys, etc.)
As the virus restrictions increases, so will the demand to seek help and food from the local food pantry, therefore, we encourage the community to support us and make monetary donations to the pantry to help offset the increased expenses.
Monetary donations may be mailed to the Humboldt Ministerial Alliance C/O 204 N. 7th Street  Humboldt, KS. 66748
The Humboldt Food Pantry is open every Tuesday from 5-6 PM
The Evergy Electric Company is sponsoring their  “Heat Relief Program”  again this year and has donated electric box fans for anyone in the Humboldt community who may need an electric fan for their home.   You may come the Humboldt Senior Center/ Food  Pantry,  718 Bridge Street,  receive a free fan on Tuesdays from 5-6 PM.

Cookbook Fundraiser: The deadline is drawing near for your
recipes, please get them to the office soon.
The proceeds from the cookbook will go toward our general fund.

“Virtual” Bible School Update
The Board of Education re-evaluated our plan for VBS this year. We have come to the conclusion that it would be better stewardship of our resources to cancel the program this year. Instead, we are seeking to re-purpose those resources into providing the families of our community with devotional material they can use together at home.

Sunday School and Midweek Enrollment
We will be returning to our full programming this fall! Be on the look out for an enrollment email to come out sometime in July. To learn about the new Sunday School curriculum, visit the “Sunday School” page under the “Education” tab on our website.

Adult Sunday School
The past couple of weeks Sunday School has started much later due to a variety of reasons which led to Zoom not being utilized. This week we should be back on schedule, with Zoom, as Pastor Roth begins a study on Galatians.

Volunteer Opportunities
As more come back to worship we need help to make things run smoothly. If you not served before but would like to, please click the button below to send an email to Carman. Some positions we need filled:

Sigh up to deliver Meals on Wheels for the last week in July.

Adult Instruction
This Wednesday, we will be beginning an adult instruction class to discuss the primary tenets of our faith. This is not only an opportunity for those new to Lutheran doctrine to come learn what we believe, teach, and confess, but also a great review for anyone who would like to come. Join us Wednesday evenings at 6:30 PM.

Hymn Requests
July, August, and September we are taking Hymn Requests from our hymnals/song books to sing in place of the “Hymn of the Month.” If you have one or more hymns you would like to request, please send them to the office.

Dialogue & Doctrine
This Tuesday we will reading the first chapter of C.S. Lewis’ classic, Problem of Pain. We’ll examine what Lewis has to offer and compare it to Scripture, aiming to read a chapter a night. Study starts at 6:00 PM.

New Bulletin Option
Starting this week we will start offering a new bulletin option. This bulletin will contain the readings for the day and list the page numbers for the service and hymns in the hymnal. It will be folded in such a way that it can be inserted into the hymnal as a page marker.
