The 49'ers

A Fellowship Ministry

Once upon a Sunday after church, a group of members went to lunch following the service. During this quality time together, the group decided that the time spent together was enjoyable and they needed to do it more often. That was when the group decided to start having a pitch-in meal at the fellowship hall once a month. So the third Friday of every month was the date set to have this gathering. They decided to name the meeting 49'ers and have been meeting once a month since oh, so long ago.

The once a month meeting is open to anyone age 49 and over. Dues are $2 per person to attend the meeting. Guests are welcome (no charge for first-time visitors). The only request is to bring a food dish to put on the buffet table. And, we all know what good cooks us devout Lutherans can be! Plus, we all love to eat.

Following dinner is the entertainment. There is usually a guest speaker, or music. Games are played during the summer months (June, July, August). A brief meeting is held to discuss any other events the group may want to host or participate in within the church. For example, the 49'ers host a Shrove Tuesday pancake dinner once a year.

The evening always opens with the pledge to the flag and common table prayer before eating. The meeting is always closed with the Lord's Prayer. In between it is all fun and fellowship. So please feel free to come and join in on the companionship with fellow church members. No committments....just food and fellowship. Join us any third Friday of the month at 6:00 p.m. in the Social Hall.
