Giving Thanks! Thanksgiving Eve Worship, 7:00pm

Join us for worship as we GIVE THANKS to God for all God has entrusted to us. We will pay particular attention to giving thanks for the skills and talents that have been entrusted to us, and especially for our God-given “passions” those things that we love to do or experience and enjoy – whether it is reading, biking, listening, praying, teaching, fishing, serving, cooking, enjoying fellowship or…?

Join us as we give thanks to God!

(And stay after to enjoy the 71st Annual Pie Fest in the Fellowship Hall!)

71st Annual Pie Fest – Thanksgiving Eve, after worship

71 Years — and Counting!  The Pie Fest Tradition Continues!

Please join us on Wednesday, November 26th after the Thanksgiving Eve service for delicious, mouth-watering pie! Enjoy good conversation and a multitude of delicious varieties of pie as we are reminded that we are thankful for good food, friends, family and above all, our Gracious God who provides it all.

Our Women of the ELCA (W/ELCA) sponsor this event. If you would like to help by bringing a pie or two to share, please bring them to the church kitchen prior to the worship celebration.

Come and celebrate as together we give thanks to GOD!

What’s Your Passion?

What do you enjoy doing? What would you love to learn? What sparks your interest? We will be exploring these questions – and more – as we celebrate and give thanks for the many skills, talents and opportunities that God has entrusted to us. Take a peek at the display case in the Narthex for a sampling of some people’s passions. Can you add to that list? We give special thanks to Carolyn Lageson and Grace Lawson for this artful display.
