Sunday, August 27 wear walking shoes to worship!
Following 10:30 a.m. worship, Sunday, August 27, we will be continuing “500 Years on the Move for Hunger” by walking a mile together. Bring a snack and water bottle, and wear comfortable clothes.
The congregation’s goal is $15,170 for ELCA World Hunger over 150 days, Pentecost, June 4– Reformation Day, October 31. Mid-July totals equaled $2,410.15 and 5,080 miles (Wittenberg, Germany, to Denver, Colorado)!
You are always on time to start “moving.”
Join the 65 people who have accepted Augustana’s Global Mission Team and Health Ministry Committee’s challenge to move either physically (walking, biking, running or other forms of exercise) or spiritually with time spent in volunteering, prayer, and advocacy. (Time is converted to miles.) Individuals or teams keep track of their “miles” and either donate or solicit monies, based on their miles, toward ELCA World Hunger. (Make gifts payable to Augustana Lutheran Church, designated for ELCA World Hunger.) Activity Logs are available from Augustana’s entrance tables or, download an Activity Log here. Still need a team? Or you’d like more information? Please contact Julie in Augustana’s office at 303-388-4678 or by email.
Bite-Sized Idea for August:
Give a percentage of the money you spend during the month on groceries to ELCA World Hunger through Augustana.
ELCA World Hunger is a unique glocal partner with communities in the United States (including Denver) 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.
Where in Augustana is Flat Luther?
Flat Luther, in sanctuary stained-glass-coordinating finery, is “On the Move” between Augustana’s sanctuary entrances this month. See if you can find his new spot each week.
Remember to take a Flat Luther to go “on the Move” with you too. They are on Augustana’s entrance tables with directions for use on the back. Or, download Flat Luther here. Post pictures on the “Augustana Lutheran Church, Denver” Facebook page, and/or drop-off or e-mail them to Lyn in the office.
