Oakwood UMC Stone Soup Event

New Ulm, MN -- All are invited, Sunday, December 7, 2014 to an Advent Craft & Baked Goods Bazaar plus a Stone Soup Lunch at Oakwood United Methodist, 1630 Oakwood Avenue, New Ulm, from 10:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. or until the soup runs out.
Wonderful handmade Christmas craft items and baked goods are priced individually.
The Stone Soup lunch offers homemade soup, salad, fresh bread and dessert for a freewill donation. Proceeds will go to the Oakwood outreach ministries to needy kids in the area.

Stone Soup is an old folk story in which hungry strangers persuade local people of a town to help them make soup. It is usually told as a lesson in cooperation. The people of Oakwood UMC want to highlight relationships with neighbors and community during this Advent season.
Any questions can be addressed to the church office at 507-354-3731.

Our outreach to school children was recently highlighted on the UMC Minnesota Conference website as an inspiration to other churches.




Join us for worship each Sunday at 9:30 a.m. (nursery provided)
followed by Coffee & Fellowship at 10:30 a.m. Ask us about our Wednesday School schedule for
Elementary Students.
