Dear Friends,
The chosen Study will be--"Bad Girls of the Bible", by  Liz Curtis Higgs. We have enjoyed her work, previously.  The tentative plan would be to start April 10th (the week after Easter).  The book has 10 chapters.  We would divide our Study into 5 sessions in the Spring.  God-willing, we would complete the other 5, in the Fall of 2021.

Spring Dates--April 10, 2021; April 24, 2021; May 8, 2021; May 22, 2021; June 5, 2021
Any questions, you can call me at --651-207-8387  
Blessings and love,  Joy 

L.I.FT. is open to all ladies - members & Friends!

CONSIDER ONLINE GIVING - During the COVID  19 social distancing the Church Council asks that you continue your offerings to church - the bills continue make their way into our mailbox.  There are two ways you can do this:  1.  use online giving (there is a link at the bottom of this email for online giving)  2.  Mail your offerings 

Motivated by our Savior’s gifts and promises we want to continue to offer our gifts to him as our response.  Online giving can help with that

College is hard. Don’t leave your faith life at home. We can help.

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.
Colossians 2: 6-8

In 1920, the first campus ministry program began at the University of Wisconsin—Madison. For 100 years, thousands of young adults have found spiritual comfort, community, and encouragement through WELS campus ministries around North America. WELS Campus Ministry, a ministry of WELS Home Missions, continues that legacy by providing resources and support to congregations that serve these college students during a critical transition point in their life. The WELS Campus Ministry Committee currently provides about 30 campus ministries with financial support and assists hundreds of other congregations in their campus ministry outreach.
