The picnic will be following the 11:00 Youth service and held in the upper narthex.

Rain or shine we will picnic together!

This is a good old fashioned Lutheran Potluck - so grab your cookbooks and bring your family's favorite dish! We will provide the grilled hot dogs and drink, if you will bring any type of picnic food, side dish or dessert. You may just place the food on the tables that will be set up in the fellowship area before or after the church service.

Everyone is invited to eat, play games, and enjoy the Gloria Dei fellowship. Please make sure to bring or wear casual clothing for the activities. We need a lot of help - A Volunteer Sign Up-sheet is in the narthex!
