What is better than decorating a Christmas cookie?

Not much – especially if you get to eat it yourself or give it to a friend!
At this year’s Holiday Luncheon and Bake Sale, scheduled for Saturday, December 5 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., something new is being planned for the children attending. After finishing their lunch (soup, chili, and sandwiches), kids will have the opportunity to decorate a cookie for their dessert!

AND – Pastor Marggi will be on hand with a furry puppet or two! Who knows what stories they will tell? But one thing for sure, it will be fun!
Look and listen for where to go after you are finished with your lunch. Be sure to bring your parents or grandparents with you to the lunch, too! (They might also want to buy some lefse, holiday treats, or crafts!)

Café-a magazine for young adult women


is an online magazine for young adult women who identify as Lutheran or not.

Café is a free, monthly, and on-line magazine for young adult women. It explores topics that are relevant to women and how faith relates to these issues.

Readers and writers of Café include pastors, seminary and college students, and other young adult women who use Café as a Bible study resource individually or with a group. Many also use it to learn more about what the Lutheran church has to say about certain issues and to start discussions with friends or classmates. Although many women in their 20s and 30s contribute in every issue, Café can be used and shared by women of all ages.

Café, the monthly publication and podcast, are made possible through regular offerings donated by women from over 7,000 active Women of the ELCA units in congregations of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). To continue this ministry to lay and clergy women, your donation is greatly appreciated. Donate now.
