CARING AND SHARING…It's time to start collecting donations for Lutheran World Relief. Containers will be placed in the back of the sanctuary to gather items for personal care kits, school kits, and baby care kits. Monetary gifts are also appreciated and can be given to any WOE board member. Lists of needed items can be found in the WOE yearbook and on the table in the back of the church. We have an abundance of baby caps so we won't be collecting those. THANK YOU for your donations!

We still have cookbooks available! If you would like a cookbook, please let Shelly Willems in the office know. You get a FREE digital copy of the cookbook with your purchase!
