The year will be the eleventh Annual Baskets of Love to celebrate our connections with our brothers and sisters in the Dominican Republic and Tanzania.  Both worship services will focus on Missions and at 9:45 am in the Fellowship Hall the silent auction will be held.  Proceeds from the silent auction will support the travelers of Christus Victor who will be traveling to Tanzania in the summer of 2019!

The generous members and ministry teams of Christus Victor are asked to fill a basket with special stuff for auction.  Please bring donated baskets to the church by Sunday, February 19.  EVERYONE is invited to come and bid on these wonderfully creative baskets on Sunday, February 26.

Thank you for your help!  If you have any questions, ask a member of the CV Missions Committee or contact KC Claussen Gubrud at 612-749-9195 or email kc@claussen-gubrud.net.
