First Lutheran Church will again partner with Evergreen Washelli’s Bothell Funeral Home and hold this spectacular summer event! The event will feature a variety of hot rods, motorcycles, imports, custom cars and trucks! The community is invited to support the End Summer Hunger Campaign, a Hopelink lunch program to feed kids. Admission is free. Please consider bringing a donation of cash or canned food to help End Summer Hunger! A concession stand will feature hot dogs, condiments, chips and beverage. Plenty of summer food and fun! Help is needed with the bbq and food tables. Please let me know if you can help.
FLC is implementing permit parking. Parking in downtown Bothell has become a huge issue for the church parking lot. To protect the safety of our preschool families and ensure adequate parking for our many activities parking will be by permit only. Please be sure to stop by and pick up your permit as soon as possible.

First Lutheran has opened a Scottrade account to allow FLC to accept donations of securities.
A charitable contribution of long-term appreciated securities — i.e. stocks, bonds and/or mutual funds that have realized significant appreciation over time — is one of the most tax-efficient of all ways to give. This method of giving has become increasingly popular in recent years because of two key advantages:
· Any long-term appreciated securities with unrealized gains (meaning they were purchased over a year ago, and have a current value greater than their original cost) may be donated to a public charity and a tax deduction taken for the full fair market value of the securities — up to 30% of the donor's adjusted gross income.
· Since the securities are donated rather than sold, capital gains taxes from selling the securities no longer apply. The more appreciation the securities have, the greater the tax savings will be.
