What is this Summer Stretch: Special Edition about?
This whole summer for the past 3 years our Jr. High and Sr. High youth have been participating in this amazing opportunity. We think its time to share in the fun and have a SPECIAL EDITION for all of you adults to get a taste.

Summer Stretch is designed to be service oriented and fellowship centered. We spend time with God, one another and our community. Hence, the lunch planned for Midtown Global market- an opportunity to fellowship and be in a different part of your community, experience an array of foods (suggest trying something new!). We then will shift over about 10 min away to Open Arm MN to join in their meal prep. There is a role for everyone of any age (18+) or ability need.

Open Arms MN is a nonprofit that cooks and delivers free, nutritious meals to people living with life-threatening illnesses in the Twin Cities.

Educated:  A Memoir by Tara Westover

An unforgettable memoir about a young girl who, kept out of school, leaves her survivalist family and goes on to earn a PhD from Cambridge University.

The story begins:  Tara Westover was 17 the first time she set foot in a classroom. Born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho, she prepared for the end of the world by stockpiling home-canned peaches and sleeping with her "head-for-the-hills bag". In the summer she stewed herbs for her mother, a midwife and healer, and in the winter she salvaged in her father's junkyard.

Discussion Date:  Tuesday, September 25 at 7pm at Kelly Monson’s home.

Contact Kelsey in the church office for the address and directions.
