We will celebrate the 498th anniversary of Martin Luther posting his 95 Theses on the front door of the Wittenberg Castle church and starting the Reformation.
Please purchase your tickets by Sunday, October 18, so our LMM chefs can be sure to have enough food on hand. Adults: $8 each; Children 4 and under: $4; Family ticket: $22. See the LMM members in Underdahl Hall Sunday mornings to purchase your tickets!
|Time and Talent Sheets are Now Available!!|
Ask an usher on Sunday morning if you need a Time and Talent Sheet to fill out for this coming year. We will be collecting them on Reformation Sunday so we can use the information to keep our ministries humming along! Whether you have a knack for knitting, a talent for teaching, a quick hand with a quilt, or you're famous for your fellowship, there is a ministry that needs your gift!! Please prayerfully consider where the Lord is leading you to serve, and try something new!
|"Aloha!" to all our Sisters in Christ!|
"Ohana" means "family" in Hawaiian, but it is not limited to immediate family. It also includes extended family, whether by blood relation or by intention, so that none are excluded. We hope that you will join in on the fun and inspiration of our next Women's Fall Gathering at Lake Yale Baptist Retreat Center November 13 to 15, 2015. Our music, worship and activities will not only be Hawaiian, but based on our Bible verse from Romans 12:5 -- "So, we, being many, are one body in Christ, and everyone, members one of another." A packet of registration materials are available in Underdahl Hall. Join us!
