Food Barrel

The blue food barrel that is located in the church Narthex was emptied on January 5th and benefitted the Flannery-Keal Home.  We are currently collecting non-perishable items for the Grant County Rescue Mission.  Please consider picking up a few extra items to donate the next time you are at the grocery. It would be very much appreciated!

Kids Hope USA

There is a huge need at Kendall for more mentors. It takes very little of your time, and the blessings you receive are far greater than the time put in. Training takes about 3 hours and you meet with your student for 1 hour a week for about 25 weeks. That's just a little more than 1 DAY out of 365 days. Please prayerfully consider joining our KIDS HOPE program as a mentor. Contact Joyce Rosel for more information.

Lutherans for Life

The mission of the Lutherans for Life is "Equipping Lutherans to be Gospel-motivated voices for life". We want Lutherans to be educated about Life Issues and how God wants us to respond when our modern culture decreases the value of Life. Lutherans for Life supports a culture of Life; all human life is precious. June is membership renewal month. For individuals who are members, we hope you sent your renewal letter. For those who wish to become members, please pick up a membership brochure at the Welcome Station.
