]With the holidays soon approaching, baking cookies with your family is a great idea for warming up your hearts and house! But if you don’t have time to make all of the kinds you wish you could, whip up a few of your favorites, then come to the cookie sale and fill out your selection from the items the Women of the ELCA will have ready for you.
Want to help out?
Add another dozen to the cookies you’re baking, and drop them off at the church by 9:00 am on Saturday, December 14th. We will welcome cookie donations and Holiday Creations, gently used Christmas decor, handmade craft items, and stocking stuffers to sell as well.
The Rev. Dr. Harry Wendt will kick off our Bible study for 2014: Seeing Through the Scriptures on Sunday, January 12.
You will want to be there. He has a passion for the Bible — and after you hear him speak, you will too! The Rev. Dr. Wendt is the author and original artist of the curriculum called Cross-ways, a faith formation tool for adults and youth.
An Australian by birth, Wendt has taught this Bible course in congregations around the world, with huge success in Asia. But, luckily for us, he offices out of Bloomington, MN and is eager to come and teach us! While he has impressive titles and is a terrific teacher and creator of faith-forming tools, he is a very humble man. For example, he’ll insist that you call him “Harry.” Yet don’t underestimate him. He has significant things to say — to you.
Put this date on your calendar and bring your family and friends too.
Are you – or someone you know – looking for a church home?
We at Faith-Lilac Way, the congregation on Welcome Avenue, would like to welcome
you! We will be receiving new members soon! (Date to be announced.).
