Good Samaritan Fund
As people in our congregation and community continue to suffer the impact of
our recent recession, our congregation has a unique opportunity to care for
its neighbors. If you are in need of assistance because of a recent job loss
or other financial struggles, please know that you can apply to the EKLC
Good Samaritan Fund for financial assistance. If you are a family who would
like to help out people who are struggling, but you haven't quite figured
out how, consider making a gift to the Good Samaritan Fund. You will know
that the money is being used to help people buy food and gas, cover housing
expenses, or bring relief from high medical bills and other expenses.
Good Samaritan Fund is currently very low on funds. We invite regular and
substantial gifts to the fund in order to continue to care for our neighbors

Mexico Mission Trip 2013
Is God calling YOU to be Jesus for the
people of Matamoros, Mexico? Pastor Dave is leading the seventeenth
annual mission trip to Matamoros, Mexico the week of February 23,
2014 through March 1, 2014. We will have the opportunity to do a
variety of different ministries while there including VBS, prayer
walks, building or repairing a house, and the list goes on. The cost
estimate of the trip is between $700.00 and $800.00 per person. This
is all dependent upon the cost of airfare.
February seems so far away, but planning
for the 2014 Mexico Mission Trip needs to begin soon. Travel rules
have changed over the past few years and now travel to Mexico
requires an official United States Passport (which takes about 4-6
weeks to get if you don’t have one). Is God calling you to
experience God’s power in mission firsthand? If you go, your life
will be changed – you will never be the same again. Do you have
questions? Do you want to go? Contact Pastor Dave Nelsestuen if you
are at all interested in going on this trip. You can call him at the
church office or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dios le bendiga!
