Hearth & Table Thursday nights 6:00 – 8:00pm April 19th – June 7th A new ministry of Central Lutheran Church & Christus House in support of UO and other students facing food insecurity. Led by Chef Ryan Josef-Maier, dinner prep begins at 4pm with the meal served at 6:00pm. All are welcome.

 Women & Justice Draft Social Statement  Join us at Together Tuesday on May 29, and June 5 for a meal at 5:30 and class at 6:10pm to engage the latest draft social statement from the ELCA. The topic is women and justice, and it is our time as a broader church to speak into what the task force has produced in draft form! Our feedback supports the task force in composing a proposed social statement at the 2019 Churchwide Assembly for our vote. We have a unique opportunity to have this three-week series with Sister Clare, a representative of this social statement task force, to discern together how our church can speak about gender dynamics in our church, society, and world. This series will prepare you to best compose your feedback, to be lifted up with many others, before the September 30 deadline.

 New Members will be received next Sunday, June 3.  Join us in the parish hall between services for a light brunch in their honor.  Interested in membership?  See Pastor Laurie on Sunday.

 Mark your calendars: The Semi-Annual Congregational Meeting is scheduled for June 24, 2018. The meeting will take place in-between services (9:45am -10:45am), and there will be light refreshments and coffee. We will elect new council members, get an update on the Capital Campaign, and much more.
