Notes from the Board – Reflecting on Growth & Stewardship Weekend
Thanks to all the individuals who contributed to our consultation on growth and stewardship over the recent months. In addition to Mark Ewert’s verbal words over his weekend visit he has provided a written report addressed to the Board. As a Board, we are are currently reviewing it in order to develop an executive summary and next steps to further engage members and supporters of the Fellowship like you. It will take time. Feel free to take a look at the document linked here (physical copies are also available upon request) and offer any feedback to the Board at your leisure: CLICK HERE.

Fellowship Collection Box Needs
Our fellowship regularly collects items for local homeless centers and shelters, including New Horizons women and children’s shelter and the Franciscan Hospitality House. For the past month, in response to an emergency need, we have concentrated on personal care items for teens at Longfellow Middle School in La Crosse. Sunday, April 29, marks the last day of the Longfellow collections, and we’ll return to collecting things for New Horizons and the hospitality house.
Current needs for New Horizons and the hospitality house: Women’s and men’s underwear (new, please!) * men’s and women’s socks, especially crew socks * deodorant, razors, shaving cream in cans, feminine hygiene products * washcloths (gently used OK), bug repellent, sunscreen * full-size containers of shampoo, conditioner, body wash, lotion * snacks, easy-to-heat food. Questions? Contact Ellen Severson at EllenQofSheba@gmail.com.
The RE Team Needs You!
The Religious Education (RE) team needs more members! We have big ideas and would love to see them come to life. Curious about what we do and what it takes to be involved? Contact Tiffany Brubaker at email@example.com.
Caregiver is Here to Help!
The caregiver can offer support to those in need by sending a card, making an announcement during Joys and Concerns, and/or publicizing your status and needs via the weekly emails. Let us know the level of care you desire.
You may reach this summer’s caregiver Barb at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Keep Calm- Join the Choir!
Fact: Singing in a choir improves breathing, posture, mood, blood pressure,
brain power, immune system and energy. Rehearsals are twice per month, on the first and third Wednesdays Sept.-May, and at 8:45a on Sundays the choir sings.
Email email@example.com for more information.
If you have an item to add to the weekly e-news or to Sunday bulletins, please email Emmy Carlson, Office Administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org by 8 a.m. Monday mornings unless otherwise noted.
