Sept 8th Monthly Program

On Monday, September 8th, the Pioneer Club will resume monthly programs and noon carry-in luncheons
We will once again have Pastor Amy Nyman share an interesting portrayal. This time she will be Suzanne Wesley, the mother of Charles and John Wesley. If that name sounds familiar to you, it may be from singing one of their many songs in our Lutheran hymnals.

Guests are always welcome. Perhaps you could invite one of your Methodist friends to hear about a person who left a big impression on that tradition. 

Please bring your table setting and a salad, meat dish, jello, dessert or other item. Beverage is provided.
