Gratitude Containers — The women’s team will again be encouraging members to take part in the sharing of gratitude with others. On Feb. 3 and Feb 17 gratitude containers will be offered with the purpose of encouraging each of us to be consciously grateful each day by placing a coin in the container while remembering what it is we are grateful for. These will be collected in November and the coins will be given to others in need. In 2018 gratitude coins added up to $850 which was sent to Lutheran Disaster Response for those affected by fires and floods. Stop at the table in the gathering area and pick up a container. GRATITUDE – take a dose every morning – may cause shifts in perspective – may cause feelings of abundance – decreased feelings of fear and anxiety!
Women’s Retreat — Wishing you could sneak away for a relaxing time in the mountains? We’ve got the perfect plan! Cozy Mountain Lodge is a relaxing mountain lodge themed retreat the women of our church are doing together. It includes worship, Bible study, and time for laughter as well as time for quiet reflection. The dates are April 26 and 27, beginning with dinner on Friday evening and finishing by 4:00 pm on Saturday. The cost is $110 for a double room and $130 for a single room. (Note: there are a limited number of single rooms.) The cost includes 3 delicious meals, comfortable lodging, and lots of fun with refreshing activities including games, hiking trails, and pool/sauna. We will be at the truly beautiful Mt Olivet Retreat Center in Farmington, MN. Registration forms are on the women’s bulletin board across from the office. A $25 deposit is requested with your registration. Forms and money can be placed in the women’s box in the office or left in the church office. We hope you will join us!
Card Recyling Notice: Though we have enjoyed spending time repurposing used greeting cards, the card recycling women have decided to disband. The card stands will remain available until our supply has been purchased and will then be removed. The close out pricing for cards is now 3 for $1.00. Thank you for your contributions and business throughout the years.
