Pancake luncheon to benefit ULC Minneapolis on Nov. 6
University Lutheran Chapel needs our help. Their building is being sold out from under them, and soon they will have no church building.
They are a faithful Lutheran (LCMS) congregation at the University of Minnesota. They are a congregation of students and non-students gathering together to hear the Word and receive the Sacraments together. They are suffering. They need financial support from us, their brothers and sisters in Christ. We are called by our Lord to serve them, for we are all one in Christ Jesus. We can stand together in prayer for them, let them know they’re not abandoned, and help them financially at the same time.
Here’s how: On Sunday, November 6th, 2011, Messiah, Marysville and other congregations around the country will host pancake breakfasts (or a luncheon, as in our case). All proceeds (via free-will donation) will go to benefit ULC. Everyone can make pancakes, and everyone loves to eat them!
This will bring awareness of ULC’s plight to so many more people. This can help pool together many resources from throughout the Synod to aid them. Let’s pray for our Christian family at ULC, and let’s join together to make and eat pancakes for their benefit!
