Sunday, June 4, wear walking shoes to worship on Pentecost!
Following 10:30 a.m. worship, Sunday, June 4, we will be kicking off “500 Years on the Move for Hunger” by walking together south to Leetsdale, west to Vitamin Cottage and returning by way of Alameda (~1.2 miles). In honor of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation and Martin Luther’s commitment to daily bread for all people, the Rocky Mountain Synod’s Hunger Network is encouraging all of our congregations to “Move for Hunger” while raising money for ELCA World Hunger. Augustana’s goal is $15,170 over 150 days—Pentecost Sunday, June 4, to Reformation Sunday, October 29.
Move, pray, volunteer
Augustana’s Global Mission Team and Health Ministry Committee are encouraging individuals and teams to “Move” physically by walking, biking, running or other forms of exercise, or to “Move” spiritually through commitments of time spent in volunteer work, intercessory prayer, and meditation. (Time will be converted to miles.) Participating individuals or teams will keep track of their “miles” and either donate or solicit monies, based on their miles, toward the ELCA World Hunger program (money gifts to Augustana Lutheran Church, designated for ELCA World Hunger).
Log books are available! For more information, please contact Augustana’s office (303-388-4678 or by email).
ELCA World Hunger is uniquely positioned to partner with communities in the United States and around the world. From health clinics to microloans, water wells to animal husbandry, community meals to advocacy, gifts to ELCA World Hunger move people from poverty to self-sufficiency.
