Christ Our Savior will celebrate 500 years since the Lutheran Reformation with fun, food and fellowship. Join us at church on Saturday October 21, 2017 at 4:00 pm for games and activities. Adults and children are welcome - we will have something for everyone! Prizes will be awarded!
We would like to know if you will attend the Celebration so that we can have plenty of food and prizes for all ages. Please email me at email@example.com with your family name, number of adults, and number & age of the children who will attend. Or, you may fill out a gold colored card found at the entry to the sanctuary and drop it in the collection plate during a service.
We have some other fun things planned for the Celebration - door prizes, a special gift from the You'th, a possible visit from Luther himself, and more.............
Dinner will be buffet style in the Community Center building beginning at 5:00 pm. We appreciate all of the volunteers that have agreed to make German-style food. Christine Fauss is heading up the food and beverage activities. Below is a list of German dishes and recipes that she has researched for volunteers to make or buy and bring. (Some items can be store-bought - we do not expect you to make your own sauerkraut or jelly stuffed donuts!) Some have already been claimed and the names are listed beside the item.
Call Christine directly at 913-645-4003 if you want to prepare or buy and bring a German-style dish from the list, or if you have a German dish that you would like to make and provide. Leave a message if she is unavailable and she will get back to you.
