WOMEN OF THE ELCA SPRING BANQUET
Date and Time: Wednesday, May 16, 2018, at 6:00 p.m. Place: Parish Hall, First Lutheran Church, 1234 SW Fairlawn Road, Topeka. Come travel with Alice Bertels as she retraces the steps of Irena Sendler. Now the subject of an award-winning book titled “Life in a Jar”, Sendler was “discovered” through a National History Project which culminated in a play about her life. Irena Sendler, a Polish Catholic social worker, organized a rescue network of fellow social workers to save 2,500 Jewish children who were living in the Warsaw ghetto during the Holocaust. Her story was suppressed by communist Poland for more than 60 years until three students from southeast Kansas brought it to life. For more details visit www.irenasendler.org. Tickets are $11.00 per person and will be available following worship services on May 5th & 6th and May 12th & 13th. Get an extra ticket and bring along your family and friends. EVERYONE IS WELCOME. Join us for a time of fellowship and learning!
