Patio Sale a Great Success

An enormous shout out to all of the people that contributed stuff, time, muscle, humor, and money to the most recent "Patio Sale" fundraiser. We made $369.77, yes we had people digging in the bottom of their bags for loose change to make it happen! Thanks so much and the students will benefit from the generosity of all of you to put toward their mission project this year. 

We had a lot of curiousity about the church and the LCM this time. We had brochures about the Church and people took them, hopefully we'll see them soon. There was a tremendous "spirit" of goodwill and helpfulness. We offered pick up and delivery service this time, too! We're really learning a lot about event planning, timing, and advertising."

Memorial service will be December 1 at ULC, 11am.

Hunger Emphasis During Month of November

FoodAnnually we receive gifts of non-perishable food items. In November there is a special emphasis on hunger. We will have envelopes in the chair racks for Lutheran World Hunger.

Offerings may be made online We will receive gifts on nonperishable food items as well as bottled water and toilet paper. During each Sunday worship in November we will invite you to bring your gifts of non-perishable food items forward to place before the altar ( or you can hand yours to someone else to bring forward).

This hunger emphasis is year long .... we always collect gifts of food and will always receive money offerings to World Hunger, ..... but this emphasis is for the month of November.

Gifts of money go to Lutheran World Hunger, one of the world's best hunger efforts (93% of gifts go to food or production of food). Thank you!

Young Adults at ULC

HikingHi everyone! We have been busy in our Young Adult Group! Young Adult Group is for anyone age 22-39ish that is looking for some community, faith-building, fun, and service. 

In October we had a Reformation celebration party where we wrote down what we would reform in the church, ate delicious potluck goods and raised $58 for Lutheran World Relief. 

So far in November we hiked the First Water Trail in the Superstition Mountains with our other Young Adult friends, the Young Catholic singles, woo woo! ;) 

We are also packing food for Refugees at Lutheran Social Services on Thursday, the 16th of November. 

On December 3rd we will be packing food for Feed My Starving Children’s “Hope Filled Holiday” packing event from 3-5pm at the Phoenix Convention Center.
