Mission to the Children Drive
February through May
WELS Mission to the Children is a Christian, non-profit, volunteer organization dedicated to sharing the Gospel and feeding hungry children in Sonora, Mexico. Mission to the Children donations provide the Gospel and food to more than a thousand poor Mexican children and their families every month. In addition to food and humanitarian aid, Mission to the Children donations help support two Mexican pastors and their families called to serve Iglesia Evangelica Lutherano Confessional (IELC) congregations in Altar, El Sasabe, and several other towns and outlying villages in Sonora, Mexico.
Zion's Dorcas Society would like to collect items to be sent to Mission to the Children. The drive will run from February through May. Items you can donate include: school supplies, blankets, quilts, mittens, scarfs, winter hats, dental supplies (toothpaste, toothbrushes, etc.), and baby and infant necessities (bibs, diapers, blankets, etc.). Please bring your donations to the box outside of the church office, and thank you for your generosity.

WELS Marriage Enrichment
WELS Marriage Enrichment Weekend
March 9-11, 2018
Radisson Hotel in LaCrosse, WI Public health leaders have identified "social determinants of health" -- things that affect a wide range of health, functioning, and quality of life. Jesus has identified "deteminants of a healthy marriage" -- things that affect the health of your marriage. As it turns out, the same factors that contribute to a healthy life with Jesus contribute to a healthy marriage. The Healthy Marriage seminar will help you learn those determinants of a healthy marriage. More than that, Healthy Marriage will equip you to practice them and maintain the health of your marriage long after this memorable weekend get-away. WELS Marriage Enrichment Weekends are fresh every year. Invest in your marriage; it's worth it.
