FALL CRAFT FAIR: Saturday November 18, 2017; 9am to 3pm in the Family Center. Over 50 crafters, delicious soups, barbeques, pies and other baked goods! Eat in or take out!
This year’s Chinese Auction proceeds will be donated to Tails of Valor, providing rehabilitation through non-medicinal therapies with service canines to Veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress (PTS), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and physical disabilities.

New Member Classes: Pastor Dody is looking to hold new member classes during the Sunday School hour 9:15  - 10:15 a.m.  beginning November 5th, in her office.  Anyone interested in membership, reinstating an inactive membership or simply wants to know more about the Lutheran faith and Jordan should contact the church office or speak with Pastor Dody in order that enough supplies are available.   

Bible Study Group:  Pastor Dody will begin a Wednesday morning Bible study group starting November 1st, at 10:30 a.m.  - noon.  The group will explore and discuss Scripture texts assigned for the upcoming Sunday. No prior experience is necessary or preparation.  Just come as you are along with a Bible of your choice, an open mind and enthusiasm to learn and share with one another.  If you do not have a Bible one can be provided for you. If you are interested, please contact the church office or speak with Pastor Dody so preparations can be made accordingly.  We will plan on meeting in pastor’s office.  

  YOUTH GATHERING 2018:  In June 2018, Jordan will be sending nine of our youth to the ELCA Youth Gathering in Houston, TX.  We have been working hard to earn our way to this amazing event by doing many fundraisers – Basket Social, Yankee Candles, Spare Change Collection, Clothing Drive, Flamingo Flockings and Chow Chow.   It will cost each of us approximately $1465 to attend this event.  There will also be three chaperones that will attend the event with us.  So in total, our fundraising goal is $18,000.  To date, we have already raised $12,800, so we are two-thirds of the way there!!!  For that, we say THANK YOU!!!  Thank you for your continued support in our fundraising efforts. We could not do this without the generosity of our congregation.

Our next fundraiser will be our Spaghetti Dinner on September 30th from 5:30 – 7:30pm in the Family Center.  Tickets for this event will be sold by the youth after both church services and will also be available from the church office or at the door on the day of the event. Advance ticket purchases are strongly recommended so we can plan quantities accordingly. Costs of the tickets are $8/adult and $5/child (10 & under) and will include Spaghetti, Meatballs, Salad Bar, Garlic Bread, Desserts & Beverages.  Please consider enjoying dinner with us this evening.  In fact, start your Saturday evening by attending our Celebrate & Connect service at 4:30 p.m. in the Fireplace Room, then join us for dinner after the service!!!

Thank you so much from all of us!!!
