Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
It was a great day on Sunday for the Fifth Annual CROP Walk. We met at St. John Lutheran in Lakeville and joined with walkers from other churches in the area to raise awareness for hunger-related issues within ourselves and the community. We also gathered funds to support the critical work of Church World Service - an ecumenical association that works around the globe in the fight against hunger.
Thanks to all who participated and supported the effort and to our Ministry Host, Marge Larsen. As this was the first year that CROP Walk was a part of the Confirmation Ministry, I am glad for all the faith learners and small group leaders who took part. Through our service to others, we learn what it means to follow Jesus.
As always, I look forward to seeing you in worship.
