Thanksgiving is coming in October this year! Well, at least it is in the Western Iowa Synod as we give thanks to God in our annual Thankfulness event.
But shouldn't Thanksgiving be more than just one day? Last year, the Synod sponsored the first ever "Thankfulness event" where people throughout the Synod came to hear stories of how God is doing wonderful things through the church. We gave Thanks for all that God has done and continues to do because of the generosity of members. This year, the Synod is offering 8 opportunities for you to come and learn about the ministries that are being done in the Synod and throughout the church because of your generosity. Join us in giving thanks for all that God is doing through the church!
Mark your calendars, invite others to join you, and please sign up as soon as possible to assist in the planning!!
*Please bring a potluck dish to share with others! Select the location closest to you or that best fits your schedule!
