          Our New Outreach: Journey with us. Welcoming, Growing, Serving.

          Welcome BagsNothing will ever replace a solid personal welcome from our congregation to a neighbor, co-worker or friend, but our Outreach Committee is initiating a new program with the phrase: "Journey with us. Welcoming, Growing, Serving."

          We hope you will keep these words in mind as you invite others to join with us in worship and especially when you see new folks and guest within the congregation.

          As you see or bring new visitors to University Lutheran Church, be sure to ask the Ushers for a Welcome Bag.  Lynn and Art Becker are making custom Welcome Bags to be given to each new visitor.  The bag will contain several items including a book called "Baptized We Live".

          ULC Young Adults

          FarmGrace, Grub, and Grog is a fellowship group for young adults and graduate students. On Saturday, November 19, they volunteered at the Maricopa Agricultural Center Family Farm day! MAC Farm is an extension of the University of Arizona that has free programs to teach kids in the valley about desert agriculture and where their food comes from. They helped out at their Family Farm Day with set up, face painting, booths, etc. There was a corn maze and other fall fun!

Eric was a graduate of the University of Advancing Technology in Tempe five years ago. Wife Ashley was a U of A student active in LCM there. They met during a Lutheran Student Movement gathering in Chicago their senior year. Pastor Gary presided at their Knots Berry Farm wedding in Buena Vista, CA.  Eric had been diagnosed with Lupus a few months ago and the disease spread rapidly.
