The Medary Conference Women of the ELCA Spring Gathering will be held Saturday, April 22, at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Madison starting with registration at 9 a.m.
The theme is “I am about to do a new thing” from Isaiah 43:19. There will be a Bible study, a program by Scott Parsley about his mission work in Nicaragua, worship service, special music, wonderful food and a silent auction (proceeds going to the Nicaragua mission project).
All gals are invited and encouraged to attend. If you’ve never attended a Spring Gathering, do a new thing and give it a try. If you need a ride, contact Judy Wormstadt.
