What is BOLD WOMEN’S Sunday?
The mission statement of the Women of the ELCA is: “To mobilize women to act boldly on their
faith in Jesus Christ”. Every year our Churchwide Women of the ELCA suggest that we
celebrate being bold women the last Sunday in February.
This year, our Northeast Minnesota Synodical Women’s Organization has requested that we
make personal care kits as our inkind gift for Lutheran World Relief. We are asking you to step
forward boldly and consider contributing to this project. A sample of what needs to be
included in the kits is displayed on the table in the narthex along with a sample of the
“packaged” kit all set to go. You may choose to complete an entire kit, may buy certain items
requested for the kits or give a money donation towards this project if shopping doesn’t work
for you. Please know that you do not have to be a member of a circle to help with this project.
All women at Hope are part of the Women of the ELCA.
We will be collecting items and/or kits until June 1st. There is a bin on the back table in the
Fellowship Hall for these items.
MAKE A FLEECE BLANKET for our next Christmas Food Box project. Kits are in the Music Room.
HELP MAKE GREETING CARDS as a fundraiser for the Women of Hope. Meet on Tuesday mornings in the Fellowship Hall, beginning at 9:00 a.m. Greeting cards for all occasions are available for $2 each near the church office.
HOPE QUILTERS meet on Thursday mornings in the Fellowship Hall. If you can cut, tie or sew, we have a job for you! Stop by the Fellowship Hall any Thursday morning and check it out.
