ELCA Jamestown cluster gathering set
In-kind donations of feminine hygiene products will be accepted to distribute locally to women in need.
Multiple situations will be presented for applying the admonition in Micah 6:8, the theme verse, to “do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with your God.”
The Rev. Susan Haukaas will open with devotions at 9:30 a.m. After a short business meeting, Pastor Mytch Dorvilier will report on the Eastern North Dakota Synod’s multi-ethnic mission which she leads, followed by Elissa Rosin giving a brief introduction to the Orphan Grain Train, headquartered in Jamestown. Haukaas will lead a Bible study, “Social Justice, A Christian Imperative.”
Three activity choices will follow the noon lunch: stretching exercises with Nici Flann, bandage wrapping for Global Health Ministries with Dianne Billey, chair of Synod Global Mission Committee, and silent reading.
Beginning at 1 p.m., Joan Halvorson, FBI victim specialist, will speak on human trafficking, and Adie Hobert, Anne Carlsen Center assistant director of education, will present the center’s current work and vision. A closing communion service will be led by Haukaas. The offering at this service will be divided between the synod women’s organization and the new Eastern North Dakota Synod’s multi-ethnic mission.
