The Joint Communications Team from Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church (WELS), located just north of South Grove Park and Trinity Lutheran Church (WELS), north of Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Camp Resort on County Road 20, have some summer activities planned.

On Sunday, they will be having a joint outdoor service at Trinity. Pastor David Fleischmann will have a Bible study at 9:15 a.m., followed by the outdoor service. The joint service will start at 10 a.m. Hot dogs and beverages will be provided. Members are encouraged to bring a picnic type hot dish or dessert to go along with the picnic.

If you are not able to bring anything ,you are still encouraged to stay and eat as there will be plenty of food. The joint service will help with fellowship and welcome summer.

The service is also a reminder that service times will be switching the first Sunday in July. Beautiful Savior will have a 9 a.m. service and Trinity will have a 10:45 a.m. service. This is following the long tradition of switching service time for a one year period starting with the first Sunday in July.

In July, the church is sponsoring a float in the Austin Fourth of July parade. Members interested in participating should let one of the Joint Communications Team members know. They will be using the same theme as in the joint week of Vacation Bible School in July, “Soaring High with Christ.” This will start on Sunday, July 12 and will go through Thursday, July 16. This summer, Bible study for young children to adults will run from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Let Pastor Fleischmann know if you are able to assist with this program.

There will also be a light meal served at 6 p.m. before the start each evening. Volunteers are needed to help with meals. Let a Communications Team member or pastor know if you can assist.

The church is sponsoring a concert with Wendy Sue at the Paramount on Sunday, Aug. 2 at 2 p.m. Sue is a well-known Christian rock musician. She performed in Austin a few years ago. The performance is free.

The church will have its second outdoor theater night Sunday Aug. 23 with ice cream sundaes prior to the show and popcorn and pop available during the movie. The movie will be “The Reluctant Astronaut” and will show as soon as it is dark enough, approximately 8:45 p.m. Last year’s movie-goers were treated with a live animal show as several deer were walking on our church yard prior to the movie.
