Incarnation Lutheran Church - Bridge Builders presents:

The Annual Senior Holiday Luncheon


After a one year hiatus, on Saturday, December 11, 2021, The Bridge Builders men’s group is hosting our Annual Luncheon honoring all members who have circled the sun at least 75 times. Beginning with appetizers and gathering at 11:00 AM in the Fellowship Hall, a delightful luncheon lovingly prepared and served by the men of ILC will follow at 12:00 PM.


If you can attend as one of our guests, please fill out a form found as an insert in the worship bulletin and return this form to the church in the offering plate or mail to the church. We look forward to your presence. Couples can simply fill in both your names to let us know your attendance. Because of the uncertainties created by last year’s events, we would really like to get a good head count, but even if you are unable to get this form back to us, your attendance will be welcome!

Disaster Response

The 2021 wildfire and hurricane season continues to be devastating across the United States. Additionally, natural disasters across the globe demand our attention. You may send your gift to support wildfire, flooding and earthquake survivors. When sending a check to ILC please indicate which response you wish to support, and your check will be used in its entirety for that cause, through Lutheran Disaster Response.
