University Lutheran Church Young Adults

Thank you to the young adults that came to the "Come and See Tour" of the Lutheran Social Services of the Southwest downtown Phoenix office. We learned more about the services offered to Refugees, the Elderly, and Foster Families by LSS-SW. Sorry to those who would have liked to go but got sick! Nasty cold of doom. Hope all are recovering. 

Some of us will be attending the WELCA Bible Study on February 10th that will be led by Mark Allen Powell. It is about interpreting Bible stories in different ways. Email me if you are interested in attending. Some of us will also be volunteering at Esperanza Lutheran Church's carnival on January 27th to raise funds for their summer mission trip to Mazahua, Mexico. Let me know if you are interested in volunteering or attending with family! The carnival goes from 12-2 and will have a variety of inflatables, games and food. 

If you like art, come to Esperanza's Art in the Garden show on February 24th from 2-4pm, hosted by the Garden of Eatin'. Submit art to be judged by attendees on "Best of Theme" and "Best Overall". Art submissions are due by Wednesday, February 21st and the theme of the show is "Peace and Harmony." You can turn in art submissions to the link on Garden of Eatin's News and Events page, or in the description of the Facebook page for this event, titled, "Art in the Garden". Artists of ALL AGES are welcomed and encouraged to come.

For it is in giving that we receive

Our community continues to be generous in so many ways. This past Christmas season, we thought not only of family and food but also of those in need. In the months of November and December our ULC/LCM Community gave $1,691 to ELCA Good Gifts through our purchase of the Christmas ornaments. Our gifts supported children going to school with desks and books, gave loans to women to start businesses, provided families with pigs, goats, chickens and bees, fed people at a soup kitchen and supplied mosquito nets, bibles, water filters and a latrine to people in need!

We purchased $667 worth of products directly  from artisans in countries where they are struggling to feed their families and sustain themselves. Through SERRV, this money goes directly back to the communities and families to provide health, education and the means for people to support themselves through personal businesses.

Many people gave to Lutheran World Relief for world hunger and although this is a year long need, In November and December alone, we sent $206 to LWR.

May we be continue to be inspired by In the Prayer of Saint Francis and continue our generosity into 2018 and beyond. Thank you all!
