Advent Adventure: an afternoon of seasonal food, crafts, and music-making!

On the second Sunday in Advent, families and friends of Augustana gather in Fellowship Hall for seasonal food, merry-making, and fellowship. Participants sip hot cider, enjoy a light dinner, sample made-on-the-spot lefse, make Advent and Christmas crafts, sing Christmas carols, and hear beloved stories of Christmas. Augustana’s Global Mission Team will also have Fair Trade items for you to purchase. They make great gifts!

Folks of all ages enjoy this annual tradition—you will too!

College Care Packages

Augustana sends care packages to college students three times a year for Halloween, Valentine’s Day, and Easter. Parents of these students bring something to put into the boxes such as candy, microwave popcorn, granola bars, Rice Krispy treats, peanuts, trinkets, school supplies—whatever a college student might enjoy.

Parents meet in Fellowship Hall between services on the designated date and drop the treats in the boxes. Parents who can’t come to the gathering are encouraged to leave some treats in Augustana’s office or make a monetary donation to help cover the cost of mailing the boxes.
