The Trinity Lutheran Church Unit of Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America sponsored its Stone Soup Supper on Feb. 4 from 5 to 6:30 p.m. in the church's Fellowship Hall.
The supper, an annual event for many years, had its origin in the children's story, Stone Soup, by Marcia Brown. Like the peasants in the story, members of Trinity's congregation provided ingredients for the soup supper and then offered the meal to the community as a gift.
Mary Berglin and Bill Huber were co-chairs of the committee for the event, which required an evening of preparation on Feb. 13. Including committee members and volunteers, 32 people peeled and pared vegetables, cut meat or set tables.
The mission of Women of the ELCA is "to mobilize women to act boldly on their faith in Jesus Christ." On Sunday, Feb. 25, Trinity's unit will join with women across the ELCA to observe "Bold Women's Day." The special day will be a kick-off event to the yearlong celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Women of the ELCA.
