The special giving envelope in May is designated for Lutheran World Relief (LWR). The goal for St. John’s is to raise a minimum of $4,000 for LWR. Last year St. John’s members donated $8,703! The total amount is sent to LWR. LWR coordinates projects in the areas of agriculture, emergency response aid, water access and quality, the environment, and health care including malaria eradication. The development projects focus on the root causes of poverty – in an effort to follow Christ’s call to love our neighbor and to care for the least of these. Thank you for your generosity!
