Greetings ECLC families!
We're looking forward to the next 3 weeks together, as we transition into a summer of bearing witness to God's YES for the world! What are you most looking forward to this summer? Why are these next few weeks so important for our life together, and how do we give thanks to one another for being a significant part of the shaping & forming of faith in 2014-15?
Mark your calendars for 3 weeks of giving thanks:
- May 3 There is no Sunday School, but please join us for breakfast in the Fellowship Hall from 9:15-10:45 am in support of our high school youth, and our new high school youth minister, JD Mechelke.
- May 10 Melissa will lead PK-GR 8, as we prepare to give thanks for our teachers. LynMarie and GR 6-8 will finalize plans for their Empty Bowls Full Hearts event. It is important for all kids, teachers & youth to be present on this day.
- May 17 Parents, please ask what you can do to help with classroom parties from 9:45-10:40 am. Everyone will worship at 11 am to give thanks to God and our teachers, for a wonderful year together. Kids will be giving teachers a gift, sharing prayers, and leading the congregation in music. Confirmation youth will be serving soup & bread after the service, during the Empty Bowls Full Hearts silent auction where the bowls they made will be sold to raise money for a local food shelf. Again, it is important for all kids, teachers & youth to be present on this day.
I'm almost always available by email, text, or phone 952.412.3253, to answer any questions you might have. Also, please reply if you are available on May 17 to help prepare soup for the kids to serve at noon!
Giving thanks today for you,
