Share Your Soles Shoe Drive

Our Confirmation students are sponsoring a shoe drive for Share Your Soles, a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization that is dedicated to sharing gently worn or new shoes to those in greatest need. Currently, they are responding to the emergency in Malawi caused by severe flooding.

Shoes will be collected March 8 through April 12. Shoes of any type or size can be donated, although the greatest need is for children’s shoes. Share Your Soles does not repair or wash shoes and those receiving them often live in adverse conditions; donate wisely. Look for our donation boxes in the narthex.

Splash! Faith Formation from birth to age 3

Traditionally called "Cradle Roll," this ministry is aimed at our youngest members – our children from birth to the age of three.   At baptism, we as a congregation make a promise to support the baptized and their families in their spiritual journey.   Through resources offered by our congregation and Augsburg Fortress we can help parents in their role of bringing up children of God.  Splash! materials are sent out on a regular basis which offer ideas for faith-filled play, worship, meals and prayer together.  It is one way as a congregation we stay connected with young children and their families.   Read more »
