December 23rd marks the end of an era in Janesville as the GM plant officially closes its doors. This closing will affect not only GM workers but the workers of other companies and businesses who will also lose their jobs. Everyone in our community will share in a sense of loss. Our auto industry has been a source of pride and identity for as long as any of us can remember.

The people of First Lutheran Church invite the entire community to a service of scripture, prayer, and song to help us grieve our loss, honor our proud workers, and to look forward in hope. We realize that this is a busy time of year, but we invite you to pause briefly to acknowledge this important moment in our shared history.

People of all faiths are welcome. First Lutheran Church is located on the corner of Randall and East Milwaukee across from the Rock County Fairgrounds. A free will offering will be taken in support of ECHO.

Time & Date: 5:00 PM, December 23rd, 2008
Place: First Lutheran Church
Who’s Invited: Everyone
