Food Pantry Ham Easter Baskets
The Cambridge Food Pantry will be providing HAM EASTER BASKETS for Families in need this April.

The total collection of 184 boxes were collected and delivered to the Food Pantry! Thank you for being Jesus hands and feet to those in need this Easter Season in our community. Also, thank you Kurt Klemp for making the delivery. God Bless You!

The Correctional System and the Prison Population in WI
Adult Forum Sunday April 27 in Friendship Hall Following Worship
Led by John Mix, Dane County Jail Chaplain
Why does WI imprison so many people? Should they all be there? Are their other alternatives? Wisconsin is ranked 29th in imprisonment rates while Minn. is 49th. Why the disparity? As Christians how does our faith shape our response?

World Malaria Sunday: April 27
Every year, millions of people around the globe observe World Malaria Day on April 25, The ELCA Malaria Campaign is turning this day into a special week, and doing our part by observing World Malaria Sunday on April 27. This is an opportunity for all of us to come together and do something big. With nearly 10,000 congregations and over 3.9 million baptized members, we are a church that rolls up its sleeves and gets to work. The goal is to raise $250,000 in one week, which is enough to kick-start malaria programming in Namibia. We can do more together than we ever could alone. Already, we have joined hands with our brothers and sisters in 12 African countries, and have seen great progress. Together, let’s help make it 13.

May you be blessed as God speaks to you through the words that are God inspired. Click here to download Bible readings.
