Happy Halloween and fall to you fiercely flourishing moms! The kiddos had a wonderful time trick or treating with the nursing home day residents last week. Samantha led the group in songs and read a story, and the older folks really got a kick out of the kids in their costumes. Lots of candy was had by all!
Are you and your kids looking to serve others this weekend? Inter-Faith is collecting school supplies until Monday, July 29 at various locations. The girls and I chose to go to Target, but I bet a dollar store has a lot of what you need! Both kids enjoyed picking out backpacks, pencils, notebooks, etc. for somebody else as much as they enjoy picking them out for themselves (almost). Plus, they are learning the importance of helping people. Here is a list of drop off locations and a supply list. Have fun!
Wild Wacky Wonderful Women’s Banquet
Ladies of Our Father 2013 Womenʹs Banquet will be held on Friday, January 25. Save the date and plan on coming to enjoy the “Wild Wacky Wonderful Women.” The speaker this year is Our Father Lutheran’s very own Cheryl Traff. Watch for details on the Our Father Lutheran Church website and plan to join us for a great meal and a wonderful, wacky evening.
What is Tickets for Treasure and what does it have to do with the Women’s Banquet?
Members, friends and guests of Our Father Lutheran Church will have the wonderful opportunity to support our MOPS group. Tickets for Treasure can be purchased at the banquet and used to bid on several prizes offered from our community. It’s kind of like a silent auction except you bid with your tickets. Instead of writing down your name, you have a chance to have your number drawn to win the items donated by MOPS. Last year $920 was raised to support OFLC MOPS!
Hello marvelous moms!
_ Then we did some pilates with OFLC member Sarah Bjornebo, focusing on low-impact and stress-relieving exercises.
It seems we have been short during our meetings. So many moms call in sick last minute. We were sad to have missed you! It is the time for colds and flu. We are praying for you who are dealing with the sickness at home. Remember we are here for you and we’ve all been through it. Need to talk? Call a mom from our group. 🙂
NEXT MEETING: DECEMBER 21
We will be doing a cookie exchange. Please bring 2 dozen cookies of a single variety to trade. Bring a box to collect and take home cookies. Please email a document of your recipe from word or excel or something digital to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you can include a picture of your cookies with the recipe that would be great! To make it even easier if you already have your recipe handwritten on a recipe card you can just take a picture of the recipe and send it!
