In case you didn’t know:  Æbleskiver (Danish -meaning apple slices) are traditional Danish pancakes in a distinctive shape of a sphere. Somewhat similar in texture to American pancakes crossed with a popover, æbleskiver are solid like a pancake but light and fluffy like a popover. 

 

Women’s retreat: 9/30 to 10/2

To ALL Women (men please pass on info):  The Fall Women’s Retreat is a long standing tradition that offers women of all ages a chance to experience spiritual renewal and fellowship in the beauty of God’s creation. This year we will take a deeper look at the life and ministry of Mary, the Mother of Jesus. This weekend event will also include morning and evening worship, campfires and devotions, a variety of recreational activities, a special fall menu, and plenty of time for fellowship.

Speaker: Pastor Sarah Sumner ­Eisenbraun serves as associate and campus pastor at Salem Lutheran Church and School in Glendale CA. Originally from South Dakota, Sarah attended St. Olaf College in Northfield, MN and then both Luther Seminary in St. Paul and Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary in Berkeley. After being ordained in 2007, Sarah has specialized in ministry with children, youth, and families. In her spare time, Sarah enjoys time with her husband and two children and also plays roller derby with the North Hollywood Rolling Ravens. She is excited to be returning to Mt. Cross for the Fall Women’s Retreat!

“God’s Work. Our Hands.” Sunday, September 11

Service Project at Mt. Cross 12:00 — Bring your own lunch

Celebrate who we are as the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America – one church, freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbor. This year’s dedicated day of service will mark the 15-year anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the U.S. As you continue to share God’s love with your neighbors, consider thanking and holding in prayer the emergency responders in your area as part of your service.

“The world can be a dangerous place. But there are some who, when disaster strikes, run toward the danger. These are the first responders, firefighters, police and EMTs, who live out their baptismal vocation in service to their communities in times of intense need. They do God’s work with their hands.” – ELCA Presiding Bishop Elizabeth A. Eaton

 

Service activities offer an opportunity for us to explore one of our most basic convictions as Lutherans: that all of life in Jesus Christ – every act of service, in every daily calling, in every corner of life – flows freely from a living, daring confidence in God’s grace. You work every day to make your community a better place. Let us continue doing this work together in 2016!
