~~     As part of our celebration of the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation, the Saskatoon Circuit is hosting a Lego building event at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church. We have arranged to borrow a kit to build Luther’s Rose and there are over 7,000 pieces of Lego, so we’ll need your help!  The fun begins at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday September 9th, 2017.  All are welcome, whether you are a Lego building whiz or your usual interaction with Lego is stepping on the pieces your kids leave on the floor!  We hope to see you there!
