Christmas In August Dinner-August 10

Our not-so-secret Santa leads the dinner blessing

We had our annual Christmas in August dinner Wednesday, August 10, 2016 at 6PM. We enjoyed a great supper and brought lots school supplies to donate. Many years ago as part of our commitment to minister to the downtown area, we began collecting school supplies at this annual event for children of Craig-Houghton Elementary School. Craig-Houghton is located in an area where many of the students’ families are not able to furnish all the school supplies needed and that’s where we come in. We are blessed to be able to help the children in this small way. After dinner those who didn’t go to council meeting sang Christmas carols and played Christmas songs on their kazoos.

 

Also, don’t forget, we are still gathering school kits for Lutheran World Relief (you have until August 14 to hand those in).
