Pie announcement

Calling all bakers! Heart to Heart Pregnancy Resource Center is seeking homemade pies for our annual Thanksgiving Pie Pickup charitable event Nov 22. If you're feeling insPIEred to whip up some pies, check out these award categories! We will give prizes for Prettiest Pie, Worth the Weight (most tempting), Far Out Flavor (most unique), and Punniest Pie Maker (cleverest flavor title).

Visit the center Nov. 22 to donate and/or buy pies, enjoy Jitters coffee or hot mulled cider, and see how Heart to Heart is growing and serving families in our community. Donated pies can be delivered to the center Tuesday morning starting at 8, or anytime during the event.

The Pie Pickup will run 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. at Heart to Heart, next to Subway in downtown Eagle River.

Midweek Advent Series

Over the four weeks of Advent, we'll rediscover how Christ is born in us spiritually today and every day. He enters into us daily to strengthen and support us, save and renew us. We're changed by His presence within us as we become more and more like Him in the living of our lives. Join us each Wednesday, 6pm for dinner, 7pm for worship.

Jingle & Mingle

It's back! Every single one of you is invited to the open-house Christmas party at the parsonage. The festive merriment comes your way Friday, Dec. 2nd, 6-8pm!

River of Life

You're invited to River of Life's Open House on Saturday, December 3rd from 12-2pm. They're at 21301 Voyles Blvd. God bless them richly in their new worship space!

Lutheran Women's Advent Brunch

There will be a Lutheran Women's Advent Brunch on Saturday December 3rd at 9:00am located at Central Lutheran Church. Tickets will be available through church representatives at select Lutheran Churches in the Anchorage area, October 23rd to November 20ths ( or call Adrienne King at 907-227-4174). $20 tickets include a boxed breakfast, program, worship, and fellowship time.

Digital Directory

We've updated the church management software at ORLC to stay better connected! Along with that comes a digital directory for you to easily update and share your information with us, learn some new faces, find contact info, and more. It's an "opt-in" setting, so nothing will be shared without your approval. Then, you can download the "Church Center" app on your phone to always have access to the directory, calendar, and group info at ORLC!
