PRIDE PARADE T-SHIRT AND PARTICIPATION – Lord of Life will participate in the Austin Pride Parade on Aug 11. Everyone is welcome to march with 10 other area Lutheran Churches as we spread God’s love for ALL. For those that have ordered a Rainbow t-shirt, payment can be made at Aug 5 shirt pickup after the service. ($10 per shirt). Look for carpool info for the parade to come next week. The plan right now is to meet at the church at 6- 6:15 pm to carpool down to the Capitol parking garage. We will meet up with other churches around 7 pm and walk to our place in the parade. There is limited parking so we want to go in few cars as possible. Dress cool and bring water bottles.
