“A Time to Bloom”, a women’s retreat, was held on Saturday, April 8th, at Green Lakes State Park. Almost 30 women attended from Good Shepherd in Fayetteville, St. Mark’s in Baldwinsville, St. Peter’s in Verona, and King of Kings in Liverpool, all ELCA Lutheran congregations. We learned so much about ourselves and each other, as well as had fun, another is planned for the autumn!

This year’s Advent Workshop was a little different than in years’ past. Not only did the children get to make ornaments for our sanctuary Christmas tree, but the adults helped them to color murals. What fun for all!
