Journey Through the Wilderness of
Wednesday, October 9 - December 4; 3:30 pm
I’ve had the opportunity to lead several grief support groups in the last several years, and I have been asked to facilitate a similar group ministry here at Lake Edge. My years of working as a nurse and as a pastor have helped me to develop an understanding of the power that grief has on us. If we don’t do the work of grief, if we don’t walk through the grief rather than around it, we deprive ourselves of having a full and loving life. Unresolved grief has a way of sneaking up on us and causing havoc in our lives. If someone significant in your life died, and you think you are still grieving, this is the place for you.Our first session will be Wednesday, October 9th, beginning at 3:30 PM. The group will meet for 7 sessions, ending on December 4th. Please call the church office if you want to sign up. Pastor Martha Butzier
Sign Up on the bulletin board! Sessions Fridays & Saturdays, October 18 & 19; and November 1 & 2! Fridays at 8:30 am: peel potatoes and make loaves. Saturdays at 9:00 am: pat, roll & bake the lefse Hope to see you there!
Time & Talent Survey: What Are
You’ll Find the Survey Here
As a Team Ministry church, Lake Edge Lutheran has a role, small or large, for everyone - ministering to one another and to our community. Whether we have an occasional hour available or many hours a month, each of us is blessed with gifts to share. We’re taking an inventory of our members’ gifts, skills, and interests to help connect you with areas of service fitting your gifts and interests. All LELC members – long-term and newly-arrived, youth through seniors – are invited to fill out the updated Time & Talent form. Forms are available in the literarature rack next to the Jumbotron and in the office. The survey is also available online as a fillable form. Click here. Please take time to prayerfully reflect on your God-given gifts and how you might share them with the Lake Edge family and community. Our goal is to have Time & Talent forms from all LELC members by the end of September. Thank you. Ron Siggelkow, Ministry Support Liaison
