Feeding of 5,000, feeding South Dakota!

By Pastor Rhonda Wellsandt-Zell
The followers of Jesus gathered to hear Jesus speak and were fed not only by his word but with the miracle of five loaves and two fish. It is a story that has been told and has nourished us through the generations. Today we are called to  be the hands of Christ and carry the story to fullness with the feeding of our neighbors… the feeding of South Dakota!
The communities of Sanborn County have the opportunity to be the working hands of Christ and feed those who are hungry in our area.
On Sept. 9 at 9 a.m. in the community center everyone is invited to a Community Worship Service coordinated by the Lutheran Methodist Parish.
The service will focus on hunger and the offering received will be for the Sanborn County Food Pantry.
According to the Pantry, the most needed items at this time include: non-perishable items with expiration dates well into the future, paper towels, laundry soap, peanut butter, dry foods and tissues. Offerings of cash to purchase specific needs are welcomed as well.
The challenge is to receive 5,000 items within the offering to meet the multitude of needs. Will we meet the challenge?
Homemade ice cream and pies will be served. Leftover pie and ice cream will be auctioned off as a fundraiser for the Food Pantry.
Make plans now to attend the Community Celebration for Feeding South Dakota!!
