Outdoor Art Jam: Saturday, July 24th, 1-3 pm
Come to the beautiful church yard on Saturday, July 24th from 1-3 pm and bring your portable art supplies! Grab a piece of ground or a picnic bench for a couple of peaceful hours to work on your art. Some have painted, taken photos, written poems, or beaded jewelry while at an art jam! Bring your own water bottle and other supplies. At the end the group will circle up and share what they have been working on (if you want to do that). For more information, go to the Art Page of the website.
In this month of July we are beginning to see aspects of life begin again that were once put on pause. Although we see state mandates lifted by our local government we as a community control our destiny. As I would love to begin meeting again in person as soon as possible, a spirit of caution is in order and many aspects have to be evaluated. With that being said we still have some exciting things coming up this month. First, we will begin the planning of the 2022 ELCA Youth Gathering trip. This is guaranteed to be an amazing experience for our youth and I am very excited to begin the planning!
WLLC Youth Faith Lens videos posted on our YouTube channel.
There was a two week break due to Father’s Day and the heat wave but this will resume this Sunday the 4th. In addition, we will begin a virtual Mad Lib with the youth via text message. For this I will be sending out what types of words are needed and those who respond will be entered into a drawing for cool prizes at the end of each mad lib. Once the words have been gathered I will read it and post it on our YouTube channel, so if you have not already done so, subscribe and click the bell for all notifications so you don’t miss it!
