Women's Ministry First
Save the Date - November 22-23
The First Lutheran Church Women’s Retreat will be at Benet House in Rock Island. This 24-hour retreat is
designed for young women, working women, busy moms, and those in the “sandwich” generation (simultaneously caring for young adult children and aging parents) who are looking for a community of support and a place to experience joy as the busy holiday season kicks off. Registration forms are available at the Resource Center.
See Pastor Laura, Betsy Brudos, Jill Laingen, or Janet Larson if you have questions!

Lutheran World Relief—Soap
Clean and Beautiful...No one likes to look dirty. A brand new bar of soap lets someone present themselves with dignity, keep hands clean and stay healthy. Those simple things are some of the very building blocks to success. That is why bar soap is needed for LWR. Any brand and any size in its original wrapping is accepted; however, bath-size bars (4 to 5 oz.) are highly preferred. Bar soap will be collected through October and can be placed in the basket by the church office.
