Project Linus
Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone that participated in making blankets for Project Linus this year. We delivered 21 blankets on December 22nd. Although 2020 has been challenging, this process worked very well. Maybe we will continue to offer this option each year when we make blankets. It’s such a blessing to offer a child warmth and comfort when they need it most. Have a blessed New Year.

January Anniversaries

NSWO Virtual Winter Retreat
Saturday, January 23, 9 a.m.-12:15 p.m.
As the saying goes this year, “2020 has been a year like no other.” Knowing the last two years we have had to cancel the Winter Retreat due to winter weather, and that COVID-19 will still be prevalent in January 2021, your NSWO board has decided to hold a virtual Winter Retreat for 2021: Encourage, Build, and Celebrate.

Join us for a morning of Bible study, updates from your Nebraska Synodical Women’s Organization, special guests, and more all from the comfort of your local location. There will be no cost and a Zoom link will be shared via the website in mid-January. We are still working on details; however, we do have one special guest confirmed. So mark your calendars and we will “see” you in January.
