Special Reminders

This year we will participate with other West Columbia Church’s celebrating Thanksgiving with a service at 7:00 PM at Faith Lutheran Church on Tuesday, November 21.

WELCA Retreat will take place at Camp Kinard, April 28-30, 2018. First payment is due to Isma Boland by November 15. This is just a short drive away and Cameron Circle is planning a fun and meaningful weekend for all. Please plan to join in this beautiful place where we can enjoy the great outdoors and the arrival of Spring! All ladies of the church are invited, as well as any guests you would like to bring.

Sunday, December 10 – Christmas Celebration Spaghetti Lunch
             Please plan to join together for a Christmas Celebration Spaghetti Lunch on Sunday, December 10, in the Fellowship Hall immediately following the Worship Service.  Donations will be accepted to support OSLC youth expenses to attend the 2018 ELCA Youth Gathering in Houston, TX in June 2018.  The Fellowship Committee will provide the meal.
Dessert will be provided by those of you who are willing to bake and enter your favorite holiday cookies or confections in a friendly ‘cookie competition’.   The winner, chosen by secret ballot, will enjoy many “oohs and ahhs” and a remembrance gift that you can treasure for years to come!
Please watch for a signup sheet in the Narthex so that adequate food can be prepared.  Any questions can be directed to Pam Hanfland or Kelly Heid.

God’s Helping Hands needs are for cream soups, juice, saltines, and jelly. Items may be brought to the church and placed in the boxes which are located in the Cameron Hallway.

SRAA Healthy Snacks
We continue to collect healthy snacks for students at SRAA. Students in need are given a bag with healthy snacks each Friday to put in their book bag to have over the weekend. We will collect snacks the first two Sundays of each month during the school year. The box for collection of these snacks will be in the Narthex. Thank you again for your continued support.
