SEPA Women of the ELCA Gathering

June 1 @ 8:45 am - 5:00 pm

The Southeastern Pennsylvania Women of the ELCA 2019 gathering will be held Saturday June 1, 2019 at Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church, Lansdale. Registration will begin at 8:45.

Our theme is Water of Life. We will give thanks for God’s gift of water and learn ways to care for our water. Our synod’s sister synod is Southeastern Michigan – the home of Flint, MI.  We want to learn more about their problems. Our own neighborhoods, the Willow Grove Naval Station for example, also have water problems. Therefore, we want to look at what is happening locally as well as around the world.

We cannot live without water; so, it is important not to take it for granted.  We are going to do something different for our In-Kind gifts. We would like to collect ‘bottles of water’ for the people in Flint. We have been told that the churches there are giving bottles of water to those who attend church. Obviously, shipping physical bottles of water to the Flint, Mi churches does not make sense. What we suggest is to collect money in each of our congregations during Lent to give to the churches in Flint to buy water. We envision putting an empty gallon water bottle out and asking everyone to donate the cost of a bottle of water (or a six pack) each Sunday in Lent. Bring your collection bottle, June 1, to the gathering.

If you cannot make it to the gathering, mail a check for the amount collected to our treasurer, Cindy Ryan, (1045 Nash Ave Lansdale Pa. 19446.). Our offering at the gathering will also support this endeavor.
