Lutheran Swag Day with Potluck

Sunday, October 15, 2017 - 8:00am - 10:30am

"Swag" isn't a term used on a regular basis in Lutheran settings because we focus on humility. The term is associated with an attitude of pride. The term is also used to indicate promotional items received. In this sense we are having a day to gather those items that are Lutheran Swag - shirts, hats, coffee cups with a Luther Rose. Bowling shirts, quilts or socks with Lutheran sayings. October 15 we bring our Lutheran Swag to show our pride during this 500th Anniversary year. Bring a lunch dish to share after the 10:30a worship service so that we can share stories of our Lutheran Pride.
