On the way to Threads we are planning to travel by bus from Edmonton to Thunder Bay and back. We will depart from St. Paul Lutheran Church, Ellerslie, on August 12 and drive through the Prairies to Thunder Bay arriving August 15, 2018 in time for CLAY registration.  There will be plenty of fun all along the way, with games and worship and some time for exploration along the prairies with stops in Moose Jaw, Winnipeg (Canadian Mint, Prohibition Tunnels, anyone??).

All attendees are invited (encouraged!) to sleep over at St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church Ellerslie on August 11 as we will depart at 7:59 am sharp on August 12.

The cost is $695.00 per person.

Registration will be open March 1, 2018, online through the synod website.

So tell one, and tell all, and let’s fill the bus!!
