Children’s Ensemble meets at 4:00 pm on Sundays in the Fellowship Hall. We welcome all children of Holy Comforter, and their friends(Pre-K—Early Elemen-tary). Parents, please encourage your child to partici-pate in this ministry. This is a great way for them to learn the gift of “service.”

As of the writing of this article, we now enjoy:
The beauty of the new floor recently replaced in the chancel.
The renovation of the Carillon is in wait due to an overwhelming volume of business...the bell folks still promise ASAP.
The new floor should be in place in the gallery by early September. You can’t see it from the nave so come take a look.
We are not done yet. The Sanctuary Committee will continue this fall investigating additional areas of at-tention.
New seating in the choir loft is a gift from Greg Cline in honor of all music ministers of Holy Comforter, and in honor of Faye & Warren Heller and Tom & Shirley Causby. The stackable chairs are made of oak and feature bonded leather seats/backs.
Members are invited to view all the improvements to the balcony. Drop by before or after the service of worship.
Early in August over 20 children and adults from Holy Comforter “field tripped” to Lutheridge. The main purpose of the trip was certainly to have a fun day together with church family members, but also to learn and grow in a hands-on experience with our nearest church camp. The group got a personalized tour from the camp director. Lutheridge even opened the pool to our kids for a private party after lunch. The tour, scheduled on the last full day of summer camp, allowed everyone to see many of the campers and facilities in action. Thanks to Tom & Shirley Causby who treated everyone to lunch in the dining hall and invited everyone into their home for a break.
The following quotes are from two parents on the trip: “Lutheridge offers a wonderful atmosphere for our children to learn and grow in Christ. Our tour offered a glimpse into what the campers experience on a daily basis...cabin life, swimming, zip lining, canoeing, hik-ing as well as lunch in the dining hall. It was a wonder-fully meaningful experience, even to be there just for the day. My children would love to be a part of the camper experience.” Maria Carr
“The church trip to Lutheridge was wonderful, not only for my kids, but for me. I never knew we had such an amazing church retreat so close by. My kids enjoyed seeing the fun adventures that they will get to experi-ence at summer camp. As for me, I enjoyed the peacefulness of the beautiful surroundings, and see-ing the looks of anticipation as Emily and Justin made plans to spend summers there in the future. I have a good feeling that I will be making many more trips to Lutheridge.” Misty Koehler
We would love to send a “bus load” of Holy Com-forter kids to Lutheridge in the future. Let us know if you have questions!
