Welcome Back Sunday

From 9:45—10:45, we gather for a light breakfast, fellowship, learn how to get involved in Augustana ministries at the Opportunity Fair, and to participate in the God’s Work Our Hands service projects. It’s a great time to reconnect with church friends and serve others.
Dinners are offered every Wednesday night that there are Confirmation and Choir Rehearsals. Augustana members are the community are welcome.
