Work Groups

At the time of this newsletter, new Work Groups have not been completed.  As soon as these are done, the January work group will be emailed out.  Thanks for your patience and for agreeing to be a monthly coordinator.

In 2022 Hope Lutheran Church will celebrate 150 years of ministry and fellowship!

The church council has asked some of the committee members of the 125th Anniversary Celebration to start the process of securing dates and discussing special events to be planned for the celebration.  We will begin the planning, but will certainly welcome congregational input and will also need help in a variety of forms from all members of Hope Lutheran.

God’s blessing to our congregation as we begin this journey of planning and implementing this historic anniversary celebration of our church.

Readers Needed:  If you would be willing to read during a Sunday service, please contact Stan Miller at 829-4794.  Thank you!

Upcoming Walk Arounds

The Walk Around Offerings for January and February will be for the Minneota Drive Thru Food Bags.  This is lead by the Youth of Minneota, National Honor Society, Minneota Elementary and High School Student Council and the Minneota Area Mission Trip.  

Minneota Area Mission Trip Spaghetti Supper, Sunday, February 21st, Drive Thru Style, 5:30-7:00 pm, $9/meal.  Spaghetti, Breadsticks and Angel Food Cake.

We are in need of 49 individuals or families to be a pen pal to a resident at the Minneota Manor.  

With the current situation in our country, the Minneota Manor residents are unable to have visitors.  To help them get through their days and maybe put a smile on their faces, GLOW (with the help of the Minneota Manor Manager, Kathy) is setting up Pen Pals with Residents!

We are hoping to have all 49 residents assigned to a pen pal by 12/9/2020. If your family is willing to adopt more than one pen pal, that is great too!  Please let us know at your earliest convenience so that we can be in communication with Kathy.

Fun ideas to share with pen pals:

-Color a picture
-Write them a letter or story
-Send a picture of your family and share holiday traditions with them 
-Send a card
-Send them a small gift like warm socks, books, coloring pages, etc.
-Use YOUR imagination! 

If you are willing to participate and have yourself, kids, or family write a letter or two (or more!), please contact either Erin Roberts at 507-530-4333 (email erinjosephson@gmail.com) or Jess Gronke 507-828-8682 (e-mail barryandjessgronke@msn.com).

"In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ ”  --Acts 20:35    

In the Christmas Spirit,
