EKL Twin Cities Mission Trip Reminders

Library
EKLC has a lot of historical video’s in the library. They are, however, all on VHS tapes.  Marilyn Gunderson and Barb Klemp have explored ways to get them covered to DVD’s and have found someone to do that. The cost is $85 for converting (6) VHS tapes and EKLC has around 125 tapes to convert. Barb and Kurt Klemp have applied and received a Thrivent Grant of $250 to go towards this project. We are raising additional funds to get all the tapes converted so that we can continue to share our great history with future generations. The total cost would come in around $1700. If anyone is interested in donating towards this cause please let anyone on the Library Committee know (e.g. Bonnie Ehrke, Gloria Fruit or Marilyn Gunderson). You can also make a note on your check “Library Tapes” and put it in the Sunday offering. 

Flamin-Go with Stewardship!
We are continuing our focus on the Go part of our mission statement with a flock of Flamin-GOs!
In an effort to get excited about EKLC this winter, there will be flamingos flying around the community. Each flamingo will have an EKLC sticker and instructions around his neck. Should one perch in your yard, just enjoy it a few days, read the instructions, and help him or her off to another member’s yard. If for some reason you can’t get them to another member, just bring them back to church and we can re-direct them for you. Hopefully having these flamingos around town this winter will create a “flap” in the community! Thanks for your help in making EKLC fly high!

New Sanctuary Microphones Needed
We have a bid from IBS in Madison for 3 wireless microphones and 2 devices that will allow Pastor Brenda to play music or video without static. The total for these items will be about $2,200. Donations are needed to help defray the cost.

Weekend Meal Program
Bluejay Backpacks is a Cambridge school district program that sends easy to prepare foods home with kids in need over long weekends because many of these families do not have adults home to help cook meals. There are approximately 75 kids in the program today. Each month 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches/
dinners, 2 snacks and 2 cups of fruit/pudding are sent home with each child. Several congregations in the area will help supply food. EKLC will supply 75 pudding cups each month through May. Place pudding donations in the church food pantry box. Mark monetary donations with ‘backpacks’ and put in the offering plate or sent to the church office.

Cambridge Area Resource Team
Cambridge Area Resource Team (CART) provides confidential assistance bringing together resources for our neighbors (Individuals/Families/Elderly/ Homeless) in our local community to help meet their basic human needs. Click here for more information.
