Special Guest Presenters: Music by Allison Crowson and Friends
About Thankoffering Sunday:
As we collect the Thankoffering at worship on November 13, we share in a tradition dating back to the 1800s, when Christian women formed “mite” or “cent” societies to fund mission. When others in the church said there was not enough money to carry out these projects, the women believed otherwise. In cent societies, each woman collected offerings at home. They would gather as we do on Thankoffering Sunday to worship and combine their offerings and offer them up with thanks and praise, dedicating the funds to mission. When Women of the ELCA was formed more than 25 years ago, we committed to continue this tradition of giving in gratitude for blessings. Each year, in thousands of congregations, Thankofferings are collected and sent to support the life-changing ministries of Women of the ELCA. Together, we do more than we could ever do apart. In gratitude for all God has given to us, and with hope for all that is to come, we will collect our Thankoffering on Sunday, November 13, 2016.
The Women of MLLC are invited to bring their annual Thankofferings to worship on Sunday, November 13, as we celebrate our mission together.
