In an addition to a number of regular opportunities -- Adult Forum, Men's Bowlling, Women of Spirit, Quilters, and more -- we also feature occasional groups.
Quilters is an opportunity to provide service by putting together quilts for Lutheran World Relief and Lutheran Family Services. A regular meeting date is the third Tuesday of the month at 9 AM, August through May. Midmorning we stop for coffee and treats and a prayer service for strength and healing. Members also regularly sew, tie quilts, cut squares, and press fabric pieces between sessions. If you would like to visit to check us out feel free to do so. The assembling and pinning are not difficult and we “tie” rather than “quilt” so it’s not complicated. Please think of us when you are cleaning out your linen closets as we use sheets and lightweight blankets - even the stained and the thinner ones as they can go in the middle. We also welcome donations of washable fabric and thread.
Katie's Circle of Friends
Meets at 1 PM on the second Tuesday of the month from September through June, usually in the letter library but occasionally at the home of a member for a Bible study. We use the study from the Women of the ELCA’s Gather magazine the first three sessions this year (September, October, and November 2017) are on the apostles Creed – I believe in God, I believe in Jesus Christ, and I believe in the Holy Spirit.
The Men's Bowling Team is a small group of men comprised of both Augustana members and non-members. We use this time each week for some good old-fashioned competition with other men and women in the community and fellowship. My plan for the next bowling season is to open this up to men and women. You do not have to be a great bowler. I am looking to change the bowling night to a not so competitive league. Let me, Richard Blocker, know if you are interested and what night (s) would work for you. I look forward to hearing from you.
Women's Breakfast Group
This informal group meets on the second Wednesday of each month at 9 AM at the Village Inn at 7837 Dodge Street. Of course it's no problem to stay until 10 AM when the "free piece of pie every Wednesday" begins!
