Saturday, November 5, 10am-12pm
All women are invited to come to the annual Thankoffering Brunch at Elim sponsored by the women of Elizabeth Circle.
As we gather on November 5, we will give thanks to our gracious God who provides for our every need. We'll also enjoy a delectable brunch together and have an opportunity to chat and get to know each other better.
Thankofferings are a tradition dating back to the 1800s, when Christian women formed “mite” or “cent” societies to fund mission. When others in the church said there was not enough money to carry out these projects, the women believed otherwise. In these societies, each woman collected offerings at home. On occasion, they would gather as we do today to worship and combine their offerings and offer them up with thanks and praise.
Each year, in thousands of congregations, Thankofferings are collected and sent to support the life-changing ministries of Women of the ELCA. Together, we do more than we could ever do apart.
