News & Events
Join us for a day all about YOU, the Women of the ELCA.
Pastor Emily Carson from Zion Lutheran in Stewartville, MN will be the featured speaker.
Emily will be presenting on the upcoming Gather magazine’s Bible study, “In Good Company.” Since the curriculum focuses on stories of women in the Bible, Pastor Emily will also plan to bring in some of her own material to hopefully encourage and equip attendees as modern women of faith. The Bible study will be published in the magazine beginning in Sept 2013 through May 2014. The schedule for the day will be much the same as in the past, with a noon meal and afternoon entertainment.
