WELS Seniors (OWLS)

ROCK RIVER AREA OWLS
The May meeting of our OWLS chapter will be held at 1:30 PM on the third Tuesday, May 15 at St Mark's Lutheran Church in Watertown.  Our guest speaker, Rev. Joel Gaertner, will update us on "The Jesus Cares Ministry." Rev. Gaertner is its Vice President of Ministry and National Director. The Jesus Cares Ministries helps our congregations reach out to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, their families and communities. There will be refreshments. St. Mark's is served by Pastors Jensen (WW District President), Walther, Wells and Bachus, plus some part-time semi-retired pastors. Their Lutheran elementary school operates with a staff of 15. St Mark's Church has been in Watertown for 164 years since 1854 and is located near the downtown at 215 N. 6th Street. OWLS is an acronym for Organization of WELS Lutheran Seniors and ELS, namely, those who are retired and/or 50 years and older. We gather for fun, fellowship, service and spiritual growth. Come and bring a friend!
