Last night I had the privilege to gather at the round table in the conference room with St. Luke’s Knights of the Round Table – the Mission Team. These are members who selflessly give of their time and treasure to lead St. Luke’s Mission out into the world. Listed are those who were in attendance along with the organizations they connect with on behalf of St. Luke’s. There is lots of crossover and mutual support for organizations and fellow Knights, but I’m identifying one member for each.
Bev Brosam – Raise Right, Oasis for Homeless Youth, Lift Garage
Britt Halaas – Council Representative
Craig Brandt – Feed My Starving Children
Janet Lyson – VEAP and Quilting
Larry Nelson – American Red Cross Blood Drive.
Pat Cavanaugh – Loaves and Fishes
Roger Lyson – Bridging
In addition to the Knights gathered, there are many others…
Gina Griffith – Meals on Wheels and Ebenezer Glenn Orphanage
Community Life, Faith Formation, and the Mission Team – The Sandwich Project
And as a congregation we join others of the ELCA to support the following organizations:
Lutheran Disaster Response
Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service
Lutheran Social Services MN
Last night another member attended seeking a seat at the Round Table, nominating another organization.
That is how the Mission Team works at St. Luke’s. Each organization has a member representative.
