An ELCA Church serving the Augusta, Georgia area

WELCA News for May

Resurrection Women of the ELCA
On April 18, 2015, a rainy Saturday morning, 6 ladies left the Resurrection parking lot bound for a cluster meeting at the Jerusalem Lutheran Church in Rincon, GA. It poured down rain the entire 2 hour ride. Soon after arriving at the Ebenezer Center, the sun came out. The meeting was informative, the fellowship was good, and the food was great, but we missed YOU!

On April 25, 2015, was another rainy Saturday morning, but 25 Resurrection women showed up for the Annual Spring Luncheon. We enjoyed all of the wonderful food and desserts, fellowship, and lots of door prizes. Rebecca Fox, Dietetic Intern from Augusta State gave an interesting program on Protein and Calcium. She gave us lots of information on when it is best to get your protein and what foods to get it from and which ones you shouldn’t get it from. Everyone was able to take home a recipe that Rebecca made up with oats that was to sit overnight, along with the recipe itself. Thank you to all who attended, we had a wonderful time. The only thing that was missing was YOU!
