BKB Fall Festival

Saturday, November 13 | 9:00-11:15 a.m.

Christus Victor Lutheran Church, Apple Valley & Online

“Inatosha. It is enough” can mean abundance, satisfaction or, paradoxically, too much to bear, depending upon the circumstance. [Read Rev. Peter Harrits’ reflection on Inatosha from our most recent Companion Synod Update.] This year, we’ll be exploring “enoughness” at the Bega Kwa Bega Fall Festival. Gathered together, we’ll hear reflections from Tanzanians and Americans, join our voices in prayer, and celebrate this companionship that means so much to so many. Plan to join us in person or online!
Welcome Guests from Tanzania!
Pastors Lusungu Msigwa and Nixon Mwitula from the Iringa Diocese and Pastor Nordphrey Mlangali from the Southern Diocese are studying at Luther Seminary this year and intend to join us for this day of celebrating global relationships.
Attend In-Person:
In-person participants must register so we may monitor numbers, prepare the space adequately and communicate changes, should the need arise. We will follow the safe gathering protocols of our host: Masks are required indoors, physical distancing is encouraged and no food/drink will be served.
