Meet-up for Young Families
Saturday, March 30; 3:00-6:00 pm
Interested in getting to know other parents at Lake Edge? If you keep meaning to say more than “hello” to other parents while you dash off after your own kids, here’s your chance! Meet us in the church basement from 3-6 pm on Saturday, March 30. We’ll have pizza & space for the kids to play. Let’s share what drew us to Lake Edge & how we can connect & support each other during the longest-shortest years. Contact Karen Odegaard (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Kaelin Fontaine (email@example.com) to RSVP or with any questions.

Toothbrush (adult size only)
Soap (Bath-size- 4oz to 5oz size - 2 bars per kit)
Brat Fest 2019
Work at the Bratfest on Memorial Day weekend and raise money for LELC. Some people add to the budget or property fund. Some designate their earnings for Bible School or Outlaw Ranch trips. Some give to the Pastor’s Emergency fund. Typical jobs include: wrapping, selling, brat runner, cashier runner, griller, clean up, Green Team (recycling) or speciality (condiment, gear, corn, Pepsi) tents. Sign up on the bulletin board if you are interested in working this year.
