Dressing in Grace

Hello Minnesota River ELCA women! We are excited about our Spring Event & Gathering planned for April 25, 2015 at Grace Lutheran Church. We have put together an interesting & exciting day of fellowship. You do not have to have an active WELCA organization to attend!
Sonja Parr, Fair Trade Clothing Educator will present the program which will include a short style show and information on the Environmental friendly fabrics, cottons and knits of the clothing.
The theme is “Dressing in Grace” and the Bible verse is from Colossians 3:12, “Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.”
