New Conversation & Cuisine Groups 

After two years of a pandemic that made it difficult to get together in person, we are now resuming Conversation & Cuisine groups.

Conversation & Cuisine is a casual evening of getting better acquainted, while enjoying a meal in each other’s homes or a restaurant of choice. Groups made up of 6-8 members and friends of Lake of the Isles Lutheran Church gather for three meals during the course of the year. If you would like to participate in the 2022-23 groups, please reply by September 30th. to Janna Haug or speak with her during Coffee Hour.

A Season of Reflection

September 18
November 6
February 5
May 14

Welcome to the Isles Ensemble’s 2022-23 Season!
We look forward to being together, in person again, in the beautiful sanctuary of Lake of the Isles Lutheran Church.
As we emerge from the isolation and uncertainty of the pandemic, we, like all of you, are trying to make sense of its impact on us as a community and as individuals.
Our four programs this season center on themes of despair, loneliness, and grief – but also of hope, triumph, and jubilation. 
All concerts are on Sundays at 4:00 pm.
We look forward to visiting with you at our post-concert receptions! 
Admission is $25, or pay as you are able. Children and students are admitted free of charge.
Tickets may be purchased at the door, or online

The Bible stories we are exploring this summer are ones that involve water. It’s a splashing good time!
