A limited edition Christmas ornament celebrating the 25th anniversary of Women of the ELCA is available for pre-order; shipment will occur mid-November. The ornament costs $12, with $6 of that cost going to the 25th Anniversary Appeal of Women of the ELCA (shipping and handling is additional). The 25th Anniversary Appeal supports the churchwide ministries of Women of the ELCA and the life-saving work of the ELCA Malaria Campaign.
The ornament features the much loved water, cross and lily from the Women of the ELCA logo. This logo identifies women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America as children of God; baptized, forgiven, adopted into God’s family, full of grace and hope in eternal life. It is a reminder of the growth, beauty, and vitality that rises out of that life-giving baptismal water. It is also a reminder of the mission of the church to “Go, therefore, make disciples of all nations; baptize them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (Matthew 28:19).
The pewter ornament, with a 2 3/8ths diameter, comes in a black velour drawstring pouch. The ornament is $12, plus shipping and handling.
