AUGUSTANA QUILT RAFFLE

In the midst of this pandemic, we miss sharing fellowship with God’s people and gathering together to serve God with hugs and handshakes.  This time of year we also miss enjoying all the goodies at all of the church festivals and fall bazaars. 

 

We have cancelled our Fall Bazaar, but will be holding the quilt raffle.   The raffle includes a queen size quilt, fleece tied blanket and other various items.  Tickets will be on sale for $1 each.  A letter and tickets will be mailed to each family with the drawing to be held on Sunday, December 20th after the children’s Christmas program.
