August is Malaria Month!
Did you know it takes only $3 to test for and treat malaria?
A donation of just $10 provides a family with an insecticide-treated mosquito net.
Help us make malaria history! Take up a special offering for the ELCA Malaria Campaign, and share the link ntnl.org/malaria with friends and family. Help the mission area reach our goal of $160,000!

2015 Table Talks
Tuesday, Sept. 29 • Streng Center
You may think you know… but how much do you really know?
The ELCA statement The Use of the Means of Grace describes the theological principles and practical applications of the sacraments in the ELCA, but the reality is that there are a wide variety of practices across the church. What does this mean for us? Why is this important?
Join us Tuesday, Sept. 29 from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Streng Center of the Christ Evangelical Lutheran Mission Center at Briarwood or online on our YouTube channel for a conversation about sacramental practice and ways to provide pastoral care that is theologically grounded.
The cost to attend is $12 for those who pay now with a credit card, or you can pay $15 at the door (cash or check).
Already have the day planned? Register your activities here!
