Faster Pastors Running for Refugees!
Posted on August 4, 2016 | Posted by Pastor Daniel
Help Pastors Dan and Daniel raise funds for Refugees!
This year two teams of Faster Pastors are each running the 165 mile “Flaming Foliage” relay race. The race goes from Idaho Springs to Buena Vista, over three mountain passes. Whew!
But the pastors have it easy. Refugees from all over the world are arriving in Colorado after a much more strenuous journey that takes them thousands of miles and many years. They travel through war zones, refugee camps, and bureaucracy beyond imagination. Once here, Lutheran Family Services helps get them settled in their new home. Learn more about Lutheran Family Services work with refugees.
Our goal is to raise $1650 – $10 for every mile run by our Faster Pastor team. All of this money will go to support Lutheran Family Services in their ministry for refugees.
You can donate in two ways:
- Write a check to “Ascension Lutheran” and put “Faster Pastors” in the memo line. Drop the check off in the offering plate on Sunday.
- Give online! We’re joining with fellow faster pastor Dirk Stadtlander from King of Kings in Pueblo. Giving online is easy – just click here.
