ELCA Lutheran Disaster Response
Council approved the collection of a free will offering to be given to Lutheran Disaster Response for "Hurricane Response - United States". The offering collection started on September 10th and will continue for three weeks ending September 24th. Your gifts ensure that our church will be able to provide help and hope for those whose homes have been devastated or who have been otherwise affected by Hurricane Harvey and Irma for years to come. We wish to thank all who have contributed to Lutheran Hurricane Disaster Relief in our September fund drive. We raised $981 and were able to match those funds from our Share the Gift program. A check for $1,962 was sent to the ELCA Synod relief fund. 100% of the funds received will be used to help those in need as a result of the damage caused by Hurricanes.
ELCA World Hunger Challenge
Council approved to participate in Synod's $1 million challenge for ELCA World Hunger. A free will offering will be collected starting Sunday October 1st, for three weeks ending October 15th. Gifts received by the ELCA through June of this year total $749,342. Their goal of $1 million by Reformation Day is within reach.
Jesus said to Simon Peter, "Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?" He said to him, "Yes, Lord; you know that I love you." Jesus said to him, "Feed my lambs" (John 21:15).
If you have already given to feed his lambs, please pray and consider making another gift before October 15th. All donations received during the collection period will be matched up to $1,000 through the Share the Gift program. Donations will be accepted at church services beginning October 1st and by the church office during the three week period.
