Volunteers Needed!
> Pastor Prada needs volunteers for Sunday school!


Help! Pastor Alfonso Prada has the wonderful problem of needing more help and volunteers for the children of his Sunday school at St. Martini, Milwaukee. His wife, Rosmy, has been doing it all ... but there are too many children! Though many of these children are Hispanic, they know English, so volunteers don't need to know Spanish. We're looking to find enough volunteers so that each volunteer would be needed only once per month. Time frame is 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. on Sundays. Please call Peg Raabe or Rev. Peter Kelm if you'd like to volunteer (414-464-8101). Thank you!

As an LCEF Advocate, you can help move your ministry forward with Lutheran Church Extension Fund (LCEF), by continuing to promote investment partnerships and ministry services to the members of your congregation.
