EKL Twin Cities Mission Trip
Planning Meeting
Wednesday, May 1, 2019 at 7:00pm

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. 

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.
