Life and Legacy Endowment Celebration
On Sunday, November 5th, members and former members of Community Lutheran, Rev. Paul and Geri Opsahl, who helped build CLC over the past 45yrs, were honored at a festive banquet in the church fellowship hall. A written history of CLC and many memories were shared. The CLC Endowment Committee was proud to award Grants from the Endowment Fund totaling $1,500.00 to: Rev. Edward Makara (Lutheran Pastor in Rwanda), Loudoun Veterans Support Group, LINK, and Crossroads Jobs. At the luncheon, Barb and Dale Blish, former members from CLC, blessed the fund with a $5000.00 Gift. On this 500th Year of the Reformation, we give thanks for All the Saints who built Christ’s Church, served God and let their lights shine and passed the faith and these ministries on to us!
Lord, help us to be faithful disciples in our time, to let our lights shine and to give good gifts to your Church, to those in need for the life and healing of the world you came to love and save. Amen.
