Special Services
 

   

Rally Day is an intergenerational Sunday School program that kicks off the new Sunday School year. All students will register for Sunday School, receive helpful information, meet their teachers, and visit their classrooms.  Rally Day is held on the second Sunday in September from 9:45 am to 10:45 am in Fellowship Hall.

Highlights of the day include ...

  • Third and Seventh graders receiving age-appropriate Bibles.
     
  • Parents of seventh grade students choosing a Fall Confirmation retreat date.
     
  • Children and youth signing up for service at worship: Choir, Acolyte, and Crucifer.
     
  • Teachers of adult classes presenting an overview of educational opportunities for the coming year.

 


The Christmas Gift Faire provides folks with an opportunity to make a donation to any of
several selected charities during the holiday season. These charities were chosen by each of Advent’s Sunday school classes who sponsor their organization by offering a holiday card and a handcrafted ornament to be given to donors. Charitable gifts may be given in honor or in memory of a friend or a loved one.

Along with the opportunity to support these organizations, Fair Trade coffees, teas, cocoas, chocolates and assorted treats will be available. These products are sold at cost and provide equitable remuneration to the farmers.

Handmade gifts from around the world are also available through Lutheran World Relief. These gifts are crafted by women striving to move beyond poverty. All proceeds benefit these women in their efforts to support themselves and their families.

The Christmas Gift Faire is offered on Sundays between Thanksgiving and Christmas during coffee socials after worship in Fellowship Hall at 9:30 a.m. and noon. This event is a fun way to bypass the annual stress of holiday shopping and “stuff” accumulation while honoring friends and relatives with donations to causes that fit their individuality.
The community is welcome to participate.

 


At the Year End Program, students will present highlights of what they have learned throughout the year. This intergenerational Sunday school event is held in Fellowship Hall on the first Sunday in June.

 


These are Sundays when all classes gather together for a special purpose, project, or program. Previous events have included service opportunities like making cards for soldiers, informational topics like Camping Sunday, and inspirational events like celebrating Christmas. Intergenerational Sundays occur 3 or 4 times a year.
