The Wayne Oak Hills Zone Fall Rally will be held Saturday, October 26, at Salem Lutheran Church (32430 Ann Arbor Trail, between Merriman and Farmington). Registration will begin at 9 a.m. with opening devotions starting at 9:30. After devotions and a brief meeting, we will make fleece blankets for the residents of Lutheran Woods, an assisted living and nursing care home in Livonia. The rally will be finished by 12 p.m. All women of SOTC are invited and encouraged to attend. For those who are attending the event at St. John’s, it will be just fine if you leave a little early.
October is designated as Pastor Appreciation Month. The Women’s League will have a special coffee hour for Pastor Dupre to recognize him for his ministry and service. Feel free to send cards or letters to him throughout the month or bring them to the coffee hour on Sunday, October 27.
