Feed My Starving Children Promotion Sunday is October 8th
St. Ansgar’s is joining the Cannon Falls community in its fight against hunger across the world and in our town. The annual Mobile Packing Event for Feed My Starving Children is scheduled for November 18 at the Cannon Falls High School. Our community hopes to raise $24,000 to purchase the needed rice, soy and other ingredients needed in the packing event. 10% of funds raised will be donated to the local food shelf. Help St. Ansgar’s do their part in funding this event with your financial contribution on October 8. We hope you will sign up for a work shift. Those sign-up sheets will be available later in October or early November.
PERSONAL MISSION SUPPORT
Dear St Ansgar’s Lutheran Church,
Thank you! Curtis and I just received notification from the ELCA-GM that your congregation has started a covenant relationship with us, including sponsoring us and our ministry in Colombia, thank you!
I would like to take a moment to introduce ourselves to you: Curtis and I are missionaries serving for the ELCA, with the companion Lutheran Church of Colombia (IELCO). We will be completing our third year in Colombia in July. Curtis works with the Human Rights program. He had been doing a lot of work to get ready for the signing on the peace agreement (which, after a long process was signed Nov 30). Now his work revolves primarily around planning with the different churches and their involvement in the implementation of the agreement. I work with the Education Ministry, primarily working in leadership development and strengthening Lutheran identity among the members.
Curtis and I are here for you all too! If you have questions about the ministries happening in Colombia, our work, Global Missions, or anything else, please don't hesitate to ask We think the Church here is doing incredible things and love to share our excitement :)
We look forward to getting to know your congregation better as we begin this partnership. Blessings to you on your ministries, and again, thank you for your support!
Curtis & Katie
