ADVENT BY CANDLELIGHT - PLANNING

It’s time to start thinking about planning for Advent by Candlelight, an uplifting and evangelical event for women of the church to prepare their hearts for Christmas.   We’re looking for volunteers to join the committee to organize the event.  What is     involved:  meeting 4 to 5 times for organization and crafting decorations.  There are    several opportunities to use your talent, including taking care of food and drinks, decorating, preparing program content, hymn selection, and music.  The preparations are as much a time of fellowship as they are for preparing for the event.   Please contact Julie Krause at jkkrause65@gmail.com or call/text 608-225-0372 if you would like to participate on the committee.  The first meeting will be held September 11 at 6:30pm in Verona.

SUNRISE LIGHT HOUSE PAINTING NIGHT

Wednesday, August 21 at 6:30pm in Verona “You, Lord, are my lamp; the Lord turns my darkness into light.” 2 Samuel 22:29.  Does this verse remind you of the image of sail boats and lighthouses?  We are like the sail boats, the lighthouse of the Lord beckons to all as we sail the seas of life.  

Come join us and paint a lighthouse & sailboat at sunrise on August 21st at the Verona site this time!   All are welcome. Simple drinks and snacks will be served. No fee is involved, but donations to help cover the cost are accepted. If you have brushes and rulers, bring them along.  If not, Ivy will have extras on hand. 

Contact Ivy Ewings with any questions.

THURSDAY BIBLE STUDY

Sure, you’ve sung some Psalms here and there… you might recognize the book of Psalms as the longest book in the Bible… but do you know about the hidden gems??  There are plenty of Psalms that point directly to Jesus!  In fact, Psalm references appear OVER 400 TIMES in the New Testament!  Luther called the Psalms a “miniature Bible”.   Join us each Thursday to skip the surface and dive deep!  Even if you miss a session or two you can hop back in and not be behind.  Please join us when you can to see our Savior in the Psalms!

RLC BOOK CLUB SUMMER SCHEDULE

During the summer months, the book club reads books that have been made into movies.
We will watch the movie and have a discussion following. We meet at 6:00 pm in

We have many different denominations of Kwik Trip cards on hand for all your travel needs.  Plus, if you make a purchase inside a Kwik Trip store, we get an additional 10% back for our youth group.  The money is used to send teens to the youth rally.  The youth group has also used profits to purchase food for the Verona Area Needs Network food pantry.   Please see Denise  Reimer (608) 225-0902 or Katrina Meinel (920) 382-6696 for Kwik Trip cards.
