November 2018


November already!  That means that Julefest is just around the corner.  Please watch the bulletin for announcements on how you can help WELCA make this another successful Julefest. This year Julefest will be December 1. We had many women and men of Our Savior’s gather to make the lefse during the month of October. This year we had 56 people make 1686 rounds and 22 who help fold and package the lefse. We had a great age group from seniors in high school to 90 plus helping us with this project. A special thanks again to Lanna Christensen who faithfully mixes the Lefse dough to roll out each year. Every person who comes adds their special touch to these works of wonder and make the days full of fun and fellowship. Thanks to everyone who participated.  We will be selling lefse the Sunday before Thanksgiving if you would like to pick up some for your Thanksgiving dinner. 


If you missed the opportunity to make lefse and would like to participate or learn more about Scandinavian baking there are other dates to put on your calendar.  On November 16 will be making Rosettes at 8:30 in the morning and then making Fattigman at 4:00 pm. There will be sign-up sheets in the narthex so please sign up for this fun day. We will be making meatballs on November 2 at 9 am if you would like to help with that. Also there will be an afternoon put aside for Scandinavian baking of Kringle, krumkake, and other fun items on November 25.  Julefest is huge project and we need your help as we have gotten each year.  Thanks in advance for saying yes when you get called and please feel free if you want to help in certain way to contact myself or other WELCA officers. 


Every year we have so much help from all you at Our Savior’s to make Julefest a huge success.  Thanks in advance for all of the time, talent, craft items, and baked goodies that are donated each year.  We have some beautiful items already donated for the silent auction.  We appreciate it very much.  We look forward to seeing you all there on December 1. 


Thankoffering and Quilt Sunday is November 18. I love to sit among the quilts and enjoy the beauty of them all.  I know there is so much love and care that has been put into each quilt by women of Our Savior’s. There is a special fellowship that takes place during the quilting time. We take a special offering on Thankoffering Sunday that is sent to support various projects worldwide.


I love this time of year even with all of its craziness.  The year as I think of all I am thankful for along with my God, my family and my health I want to say how thankful I am for the Women of our WELCA group.  A special thanks also to Lisa and Julie in the office who do so many things to make sure our organization runs smoothly.   A special thanks to Pastor Stephan and Deacon Laura for their spiritual guidance for our group.  I am truly blessed!


God’s work, our hands
