I am super excited to announce that our mission trip for 2016 will be in Brownsville, Tennessee! Brownsville is about an hour away from Memphis and two hours from Nashville.
We will leave early Friday morning July 8th and work with Group mission trips on home repair within the community. We will finish our work on Monday, July 11th and take our time returning home on Tues-day, July 12 or Wednesday, July 13. I am hoping to be able to have some fun in Nashville, Memphis, or St. Louis on our way home.
Cost for the mission trip portion is $289.00 (this includes lodging while in Brownsville and food). There will be additional costs depending on what fun we have on the way home and gas/van rental expenses. My best guess is $400-$500 per person.
To register, please get Kelly a $50 non-refundable registration fee by November 22nd.
If you have questions, please let me know. Also, you can watch a video about Group mission trips at http://groupmissiontrips.com/workcamps/
Confirmation will meet November 4th, 11th, 18th also 3rd Wednesday (Nov. 18th) dinner @ 6pm & worship @ 7pm and Nov. 25th (Thanksgiving Eve dinner @ 6pm & worship @ 7pm Worship is required instead of class time)
Marcia will be practicing weekly on Sundays from 10:10–10:25am in the first Sunday School room. Youth 5th grade–High school welcome.
We who have nearly everything can still give great gifts to eachother at Christmas. The ELCA’s Good Gifts catalog lets us choose a gift of 10 chicks or a piglet, a cookstove, blankets and food for a refugee family, training for a community health team, school uniforms and tuition to send a girl to school, and much more. Give these gifts this Christmas, and give your loved one an ELCA Christmas thank-you card that gives them the credit for inspiring your gift. Catalogs and cards are in the narthex at the church for you to take home.
CONFIRMATION--not just for middle school stu-dents anymore! Anyone who wishes to participate in Messiah’s confirmation classes is welcome to attend classes on Wednesday evenings, 7:30-8:30 p.m. in the conference room. This is a Bible year in a two-year curriculum rotation, and we are presently in the book of Genesis. For more information, talk with Pastor Susanne.
