LITURGY PLANNING MEETING

The meeting to plan November liturgies will be held on Thursday, October 17, 9:30, at the Riverwalk Community Room. Please join us! It's our combined ideas that create such meaningful liturgies! And it's fun!

And let Joanne or anyone on the liturgy committee know if you’d like to present a homily.  All in CLS would love to hear your stories, your ideas, or your insights on favorite topics.  Let us know, too, if you have an idea for an guest homilist.

SOPHIA: DAVE HELLING SCHOLARSHIP FUNDRAISER

 

Kayla Larson, who will speak at CLS on Sunday, September 22, is SOPHIA’s Organizer for Development and Communication.  She will talk about what the David Helling Scholarship Fund aims to accomplish through training of community leaders. She will also talk about the training she participated in this past spring and how it inspired her as a social justice activist.
