GRACE LUTHERAN FOUNDATION ANNUAL MEETING, APRIL 26
Foundation Meeting and light lunch will follow Sunday’s worship service.
SYTTENDE MAI, 8:30 a.m. - 11 a.m., MAY 16
Syttende Mai, also known as Norwegian Constitution Day, will be celebrated on Saturday, May 16th at Grace.
This year we are trying something completely different and exciting. A “Frokost” or authentic Norwegian buffet breakfast will feature the exact Syttende Mai menu served at the Bondeheimen Hotel in Oslo, Norway. Serving begins at 8:30 a.m. and ends at 11 a.m., come any time during those hours. There will be live music during the breakfast and interesting Scandinavian cultural displays to explore.
Tickets are available at any Gordy’s Country Market in Eau Claire, Adults only $10, Youth (16 and under) $3. Questions call 715 874-6678 or email email@example.com
Don't miss out on an eventful morning of wonderful Scandinavian food, festivities and an opportunity to wear your Norwegian attire. Seating is limited--so get your tickets early!
SUMMER WORSHIP TIME – 9:30 a.m., MAY 24
Starting on Memorial Day Sunday (May 24) through Labor Day Sunday (Sept 6), worship will be at 9:30am.
Think about when we should have worship times after summer. (Should we continue at 9:30, return to 10:30, keep the same time all year--9:30, 10:00, 10:30?) Comments will be welcomed by Worship and Music board members or Pastor Dean.
WALKING TOGETHER, MAY 30
Perhaps you have attended Walking Together, the annual springtime event aimed at helping congregational leaders learn, share and grow. The feedback we receive from this day of resource sharing tells us that it’s worth doing again and again--and again!
This year’s event (the sixth annual) will be held Saturday, May 30 at UW-Eau Claire and it promises to be one of the best ever. With over 40 different workshops to choose from, you will have lots of opportunities to hear the latest thinking on change, generosity, youth and young adults, healthy congregations, Islam, spiritual gifts and more.
So get a group together--it only costs $15/person and that includes lunch. To encourage youth to attend, anyone under the age of 18, will be admitted free. You’ll be glad you did!
