Our Kindred Lutheran Parish Sent 97 Boxes of Kits, Quilts, and God's Love for Lutheran World Relief!
Members from Calvary and St. John'steamed up this year again to generously help donate their resources and skills to make quilts and provide school kits, baby care kits, personal care kits, and sewing kits for Lutheran World Relief Effort and for our local community. St. John's Lutheran provided 10 baby care kits, 29 personal care kits, 12 quilts, and 36 school kits. Calvary provided 18 sewing kits, 135 personal care kits, 131 quilts, and 141 school kits. Calvary was able to give 10 quilts to AVAIL in Antigo. A BIG THANK YOU to everyone in our Kindred Lutheran Parish churches that helped to make this happen! On Sunday, September 25th Jim Hartleben blessed all of the quilts and kits.
Our Giving Cupboard Will Touch Lives
Vicar Jennifer is such an inspiration to all of her members at Calvary and St. John's and to the community! Her idea to create a Giving Cupboard came to life at Calvary. She created this beautiful spot at Calvary where we can all be inspired to give from our hearts.
I have seen the need for God’s care to be felt in practical ways. A gas card for families traveling to medical procedures, self care items for weary young mothers, a small birthday gift for someone confined at home. The giving cupboard is now available if your heart is moved to extend the reach of God’s kindness during Vicar’s pastoral care visits thank you to all who gave during our noisy offering collection last month toward this effort. May God bless the givers and those who will receive in times of need. In God’s love, Vicar Jennifer

Crop Hunger Walk
CROPHunger Walks are community-based walk events held in cities and towns across the United States, raising funds to support the global mission of Church World Service (CWS), a faith-based organization transforming communities around the globe through just and sustainable responses to hunger, poverty, displacement and disaster. It was a beautiful day for the Crop Walk! These wonderful walkers were part of the 10,823 people who committed to being part of this great cause. Walkers raised money to benefit local food pantries. They also walked to help provide life-saving support like emergency food along with the seeds, tools and programs that will help families feed themselves in the future. Way to go walkers! Thank you also to those who sponsored them. - Vicar Jennifer
Foster Families Are Such A Blessing!
What a blessing to give so generously to families who open their homes to children in need of care. Mike Jewell from Foster Care Connect gratefully received the donated gift cards to local restaurants from Calvary Church. This will allow those providing foster care a chance to go out for a family meal with the children while patronizing our local eating spots. Thank you, Calvary for helping to show God’s love in our community! - Vicar Jennifer

Holy and Faithful God, Be attentive to all who wait expectantly for your mercy in times of crisis, illness, fear, and grief. Answer them when they cry out to you.
You have clothed the saints in the light of Christ. Teach us to live in his ways until the great day when he comes to make all things new.
