Quilt Auction benefitting the ELCA Hunger Appeal
More than 820 million people - that's about 11% of people in our world today - are hungry. As members of the ELCA, we are called to respond. We are a church that rolls up our sleeves and gets to work. Working with and through our congregations, in the United States, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands Lutheran churches overseas and other partners, ELCA World Hunger is uniquely positioned to reach communities in need. You can support this from NE Minnesota by bidding for a quilt made by church members in the area, including our own Pat Johnson who created the quilt in the gathering space! IT IS STUNNING! The ONLINE Auction will take place October 11-14th at 2:oopm. You can go to the site now to see some of the quilts already donated. If you are a quilter or know a quilter that would like to donate let Amy Loken or Pat Johnson know. Please share the site with friends who want to make a difference!
