Gather October 2016

November 2017


You can feel it in the air Julefest is coming quickly!  Much of the planning for the Julefest to be held on December 2, 2017 is already done.  As always there were many women and men of Our Savior's who gathered to make Lefse during the month of October.  This year we had 64 people who created 1,570 rounds of lefse which will go for sale during the Julefest.  We also had 38 people who came in the evening to help fold and package it.  Thanks to Lanna Christensen who every year faithfully mixes the batches together so we have the lefse dough to roll.   Every person adds something special to this fun work day. Thanks to everyone who helped in many different ways. We will be selling Lefse the Sunday before Thanksgiving if you want to pick some up for your Thanksgiving dinner.


We are also having sessions at the church to make other Scandinavian goodies for Julefest during the month of November.  Rosettes will be done Thursday, November 17 at 8:30 followed by Fattigman making in the afternoon at 1:00.  Please join us for these fun work activities.  We are also having a Scandinavian Baking date which is set up for Sunday, November 26 at 1:00 pm.  There are sign-up sheets for each activity posted in the narthex of the church.  You don’t have to know how to make any of these things as matter of fact it is a good chance to learn how to make many of these delicious goodies.  Please see the article about Julefest in the newsletter as there are so many ways you can help us prepare for this special day.  Julefest is huge project and we need your help as we have gotten every 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.


Thankoffering and Quilt Sunday is Sunday, November 19.  I love to sit among the quilts and enjoy the beauty of them because I know there is so much love and care that has been put into each quilt by the women of Our Savior's.  The special fellowship which takes place during the quilting time is tribute to our Lord and Savior.   There is a special offering taken that day which is sent to support various projects world wide.  


I love this time of year in spite of all the craziness that comes with it.  This year as I think of all that 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.  Thanks also to Lisa and Julie in the church office for all their help.  I am truly blessed.
