So far we have about 10 kids and 12 adults signed up to represent First Lutheran Palo Alto at the Sierra Pacific Synod wide service day on Saturday, November 13 from 1-3. If you are interested and have not yet rsvp’d, please let Carol know or contact Pastor Kate.

We will meet at Grace Lutheran Palo Alto at 12:45 on Saturday, November 13. Grace will be one of five sites in the synod seeking to assemble a total 1000 personal care kits for Lutheran World Relief . For more information about Lutheran World Relief and its work in refugee and disaster relief, see their website at At the event, there will be a program where youth will talk more about the mission of LWR and how these personal packages are helpful.

While optional, we hope that those of you attending can bring the contents for one or more personal care kits. Attached below is a flier about the event, the list of personal care kit items, and a link to Amazon where these items can be purchased. The donations we bring will be added to others and then organized for the kids and other attendees to pack into personal kits.
