Lutheran World Relief
Kit Assembling Day
Saturday, September 29, 9:00-10:30am
All are welcome to join Barb and friends in the Fellowship Hall to help assemble school, baby care, and personal care kits, and tie quilts for LWR. This cross-generational activity, including devotions, snack, and fellowship is a favorite for many BLC memebers!
