S.A.G.E.S. 55+ (Social and Service Ministry)
SAGES are a group of 55+ years of age people who join in faith and fellowship. Events occur several times a year to provide service and social opportunities. Fall 2019 includes:
SAGES 55+ will once again sponsor the Christmas Box Project for Deployed Military Personnel. The congregation is invited to join to this project by contributing any amount from $5 to $50 to $500!!! The goal is for Faith to contribute 50 Christmas boxes to the community campaign. Thrivent Financial has provided $250 in seed money to jump start this project. The gift box contents are valued at $50.
YOU CAN HELP!  Make a tax-deductible donation to Faith Lutheran Church with “SAGES Christmas Project” in the memo line of your check – or contribute items for the boxes. 
(Your contribution is private as any of your offerings are.) 
If you have a loved one serving overseas give us their APO/FPO address and we will send them a Christmas gift box. The Waconia Lions Club will pay to ship packages to APO/FPO addresses in November.
Our packing date is November 13 @ 9:00AM. Teresa Schmidt and I will shop for box contents prior to the event.
