This past year, despite the challenges, dozens and dozens of events, ministries, and programs brought encouragement and hope. There is so much that wants to tear us down and pull us apart. Yet, through the strength, love, and powerful truth of Jesus Christ, we continue to come together in person and online, care for each other, and share Jesus’ love with others. We know it’s making a difference because others have expressed gratitude for things like the quality of our online worship, Trunk or Treat, God’s Grub, funeral services and luncheons, and so much more.
By God’s grace, you make this possible! At last year’s Give to the Max you gave $16,383. Thank you! We were able to add many tools to aid in live streaming. This year our goal is to raise $20,000 to: improve the look and acoustics of Founders Hall, make more improvements to the sanctuary, and offer more mental wellness training. To start us off, four generous donors have given $5,000 to match. The first $5,000 will instantly become $10,000, and we’ll be halfway there!
Thank you for giving and working together to bring hope!
Give to keep:
Saron Lutheran church is located near the heart of Big Lake, MN. Our lives have been stirred by the love of Jesus to live out our faith -- by nurturing hope and inspiration through relationships and community. Bringing God's light and love into the world is an exciting privilege. The hearts of the people we meet are so valuable in God's eyes and God surprises us over and over again in beautiful ways. You will find the people of Saron out on the streets and in the community volunteering. You’ll find them inviting the community into the Saron building on a regular basis for good food and beautiful friendship, monthly serving, on average, 130 people a fabulous, free meal at God's Grub. You'll find them donating time and resources to be with kids. Over 300 people from the Big Lake community participate in Trunk or Treat. And the children, youth and adults of Saron learn and grow, worship, serve and support each other on an ongoing basis.
We do it because we have been loved and accepted and rescued, through Jesus Christ, by the God of love. God is so good! We are so thank-full. And we want the whole world to know! As God works in and through us, others find a comforting presence, words of hope, a helping hand and renewed courage. We hope you will consider donating to Saron Lutheran Church on this Give to the Max Day so our mission can continue to thrive and inspire. Our ministries and people would be most appreciative. God bless you!
