At 11 :30 a.m. a very special “chalk talk” will be presented by Elva Hurst of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Chalk is the medium she uses to express her ministry through art. Her program, entitled “Then Comes Spring” will be a time for reflection on the· glorious resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ at Easter as well as the joyful arrival of the Spring season in all its splendor with buds, blooms and renewal of new life!

Because this program is so special, friends and families are invited to view the program beginning at 11:30. Everyone will appreciate Elva’s witness through this art medium. We will experience her calling as she draws with music and narration accompanying her hand strokes.

The finished drawing will be gifted to St. Paul in thanks for hosting this event.


Please contact Joan Slocum or Robin Kaelin, SOS Women of the ELCA Leaders.

The event is finished.
