A special Thanksgiving service will take place on Sunday, Nov 22, at 10:30 a.m. at Our Saviour's Lutheran Church in Norge. Sponsored by the Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), the worship service will highlight Thank Offerings collected for ministries at home and around the globe; the church will also honor Thanksgiving by inviting the community to bring food items for the FISH Food Pantry and place on and around the altar. The worship service will recognize and give thanks for the 45th anniversary of the ordination of women in the ELCA. In 1970, the Lutheran Church in America and the American Lutheran Church voted in their conventions to allow for the ordination of women to the ministry of Word and Sacrament. Rev. Carol Schweitzer, professor of Pastoral Care at Union Theological Seminary, will preside. All are welcome!
