Life Together
You will find many opportunities for involvement in our community of faith.

 

It’s Lefse Time!
Save the Date: November 17 at 9am
This year we would especially encourage you bring your children and/or grandchildren to share in this fun activity. We need a new generation of lefse makers and this is a great opportunity to enjoy the fese making and the wonderful fellowship too. Please bring your supplies (irons, rolling pins, pastry cloths, turning sticks and a batch or two of made-up dough) to Friendship Hall on Saturday, November 17th. We will begin at 9:00 a.m. and bake until we run out of dough. Lefse will be sold at church on Sunday, November 18th.  

While Pastor Lovick is Away
While Pastor Brenda Lovick is out of the office and out of town from November 10-24, Pastor David Berggren will be leading Sunday worship.  
Pastor Jennifer Jelinek, from Grace Lutheran Church, is available for pastoral emergencies. Her phone number is 608-285-7120.

End-Of Year Contributions
The end of the 2018 year falls on Monday, December 31, 2018. In order to get your year-end contributions submitted to be a part of the 2018 fiscal year, please have them to the office by Friday, January 4, 2019 or post-marked no later than January 2, 2019. A gentle reminder to use your offering envelopes whenever possible. More importantly, please remember to write your name on the envelope especially if giving cash (unless you wish to remain anonymous).

Weekend Meal Program
Bluejay Backpacks is a Cambridge school district program that sends easy to prepare foods home with kids in need over long weekends because many of these families do not have adults home to help cook meals. There are approximately 75 kids in the program today. Each month 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches/
dinners, 2 snacks and 2 cups of fruit/pudding are sent home with each child. Several congregations in the area will help supply food. EKLC will supply 75 pudding cups each month through May. Place pudding donations in the church food pantry box. Mark monetary donations with ‘backpacks’ and put in the offering plate or sent to the church office.

Area Senior Dining
Join others from our community at the Amundson Center on Tuesdays and Fridays at noon and enjoy a delicious healthy meal and conversation. Open to anyone over the age of 60. For questions and to make reservations please call 608-838-7117. (Reservations need to be made at least 24 hours before) Suggested donation of $4.
