Peggy will inspire, share ideas and provide resources that will expand your thinking and deepen your spiritual life. This is an event for everyone in your congregation, including your entire evangelism team or council
Saturday, March 8
First Lutheran Church, Cedar Rapids
Join Lutheran Services in Iowa (LSI) and members of the Southeastern Iowa Synod on Monday, March 10, 2014 for Lutheran Day on the Hill in Des Moines. This day is essential in giving a voice to those who are not heard, for seeking social justice and for empowering people to exercise their right and responsibility to be part of the legislative process. Participants will learn more about advocacy, hear from special guest speakers and have the opportunity to talk to their legislators about critical issues facing children, families and adults.
Transportation will be provided once again for this year’s event. Charter buses will be leaving Iowa City at 7 a.m. with a stop in Newton at 8:15 a.m. This is a great way to be part of the day without the hassle of driving. It’s also a time of fellowship with a great group of people!
The 2014 Southeastern Iowa Synod Assembly will be held on Friday, May 30 to Sunday, June 1 at the Marriott Hotel and Convention Center in Coralville, IA. The assembly will gather under the theme “Led by the Spirit.”
