ELCA National Youth Gathering

The ELCA National Youth Gathering is coming up this summer in Houston, TX.  We have 10 youth and 3 adults who will be traveling there for what is sure to be a truly life-changing event!  The ELCA National Youth Gathering only happens every three years.  To fundraise for this trip, this year we are doing a WALL OF MONEY!  There are 130 envelopes that are numbered from $1-$130.  You can pick whatever envelope(s) you’d like and return them with the corresponding amount written on the outside.  We will have our WALL OF MONEY up throughout February.  Thanks in advance for your support!


Order Your Easter Lily

Easter Lily forms may be found in the narthex. The cost is $15.00 and the deadline to submit the form is Monday, March 12th.

Fresh Expressions will be today at 5:30 and we are excited to have Logan Westmoreland, our field seminarian, to give the reflection.  Hope you’ll join us for a wonderful worship service!

If you do, please complete a Disbursement Request form, which can be found in Julie’s box in the workroom, and attach receipts to the form for any expenses you’ve personally incurred.
