ALL are welcome!
Book Study/Adult Education Opportunity:
Are you interested in engaging more directly with anti-racism efforts? Pastor is facilitating a book study over ELCA pastor Lenny Duncan’s book Dear Church. The group would meet on Tuesday evenings from 6:30-7:30 PM every two weeks, tackling a chapter per meeting. You are invited to Zoom in OR gather in our Fellowship hall where we will spread out, wear masks, and keep the windows open. If you’re interested in joining please email pastor at: firstname.lastname@example.org and head over to Amazon or your favorite bookstore to grab a copy of Dear Church for yourself.
Monday Morning Ministries still gathers the first and third Mondays of the month at 9:30 AM. We have been gathering in our fellowship hall & following CDC guidelines. If you'd like to join us please feel free to attend or contact Iris Cook or Pastor.
Each year the Outreach Team gathers to send care packages to our college students. We are sending them early this year as many colleges are leaving at Thanksgiving break and not returning until after Christmas Break. If you haven’t done so already, please email the church with your college students name, college they attend and their address where we should mail their care package. We will not be mailing homemade baked goods this year due to COVID. Please send us your information no later than October 20th. Thank you! Care package assembly will be on Monday, 11/09 at the church if anyone is interested in helping. We are looking for the following items to be donated for the packages: gum, mints, treats, post-its, pens/pencils/erasers, teas/hot chocolate/instant coffee, small coloring books.
Adult's Night Out:
The Multi-Generational Faith Formation Team invites you to join us around the firepit on Friday, Oct. 23rd at 6:30pm for some socially distanced fellowship. Grab a babysitter for the kids and come relax for an hour or two! Bring your own beverage, snack, and chair (and maybe even a blanket!) We hope to see you there!
Youth Group: Day of Service
Youth group kicked off last month with a bonfire and we hope to have at least one event/gathering/activity each month until we get can on a more frequent schedule when COVID restrictions lighten up. This month we will be spending Saturday Oct. 24th (11-3) in Cedar Rapids lending a hand as they continue to recover from August’s derecho. If you/your youth would like to participate, RSVPs must be in to Pastor by Oct. 20th. Join us as we continue to live out our baptismal calling to serve all people and strive for justice and peace in all the world!
