Pastor Paul Moody leads conversation surrounding a weekly topic which is distributed by email and the Public Theology blog. The conversation this fall is inspired by Nadia Bolz-Weber's new book: Accidental Saints. Contact Pastor Paul for more information or to join the email distribution list.
Our Wednesday night youth service group, F.I.S.H. (Fun In Serving Him), is open to elementary age children in grades 1 through 5. The group meets Wednesday evenings from 6:35 to 7:30. The fall quarter is focused on creating a Christmas tree for the Festival Trees that benefits Hiawatha Homes. Throughout the year, other fun service projects may include baking for the neighborhood firefighters, a neighborhood food collection for Channel One, some basic sewing projects, assembling care kits for college students, birdhouse building, and maybe a few off-site service opportunities.

Women's Retreat: October 9-10

All women are invited to come together at Mount Olive on October 9-10th to explore Empowered Women = Empowering Women. We will see how the scriptural witness can continue to empower us as it has Christian women of all ages, while being honest about the "rough edges" of both our sacred book and our own lives.
The Retreat Speaker, Rev. Sarah Nietz, is the lead pastor of Our Savior's Lutheran in Faribault.
