Adult Education Sundays at 9:30 am
January 20: Briarpatch. In Madison, over 300 youth are homeless at any one time. Briarpatch is an agency that serves over 3000 of them annually. On January 20th, Tyler Schueffner, program coordinator for Briarpatch's street outreach program, will join us to talk about the transitional living program (Briarpatch TLP) that provides housing for 18-22 year olds experiencing homelessness or housing instability.
January 27: Racial Justice Team present the film “Healing Trauma: Beyond Gangs and Prisons" documenting the amazing work of Homeboy Industries in Los Angeles, an organization that trains and places returning prisoners for good jobs, and provides other helps with transition to normal life, such as therapy and tattoo removal. Whether you missed the originally LELC showing in December, or you will be viewing it for the 2nd time, you will find this film moving and powerful!
February 3: “One-to-One Conversations" Join Jerry Buss in learning about one-to-one conversations and how we might use them at Lake Edge Lutheran. A one-to-one is a type of intentional conversation that has roots in community organizing. It is an opportunity to establish a deeper relationship with another person through hearing the person's story, passions, hopes and interests.

Recycle the Warmth Blanket Drive
St. Vincent de Paul annually provides hundreds of needy people in Madison and its surrounding communities with good-quality recycled and new bedding. Lake Edge is one of dozens of area churches that participate in this drive annually. All the bedding we collect or purchase during this drive will then be given away during the next twelve months to needy individuals and families who come to the Center for Vincentian Charity (2033 Fish Hatchery Road in Madison) seeking assistance from the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. Shopko is a huge sponsor of this drive. It is a good place to get a blanket for a good value. Please bring your donations of new or gently used blankets and bedding during the month of January to church. There will be a RECYCLE THE WARMTH barrel located just outside of the nursery door.
