Give to the Max Day 2019
Give to the Max is just around the corner. Join us Thursday, November 14th and support Voyageurs Lutheran Ministry. Moving our canoe forward is hard work. VLM is blessed to have so many paddles working
together. THANK YOU!
This year marks the tenth year of Give to the Max Day for VLM. Due to some anonymous generosity, there is a $20,000 match available on November 14th which doubles your gift. As many of you who have paddled with us know, each paddle counts. Please consider a gift to VLM and be one of the paddles that continues to move our mission forward.
Scheduled giving is now open as well. Plan your gift so you don’t have to worry about forgetting on the big day. Follow us online all day using the hashtag: #VLMmanypaddles
How to Give? You can give to Camp Hiawatha and Camp Vermilion by going to GiveMN.org and searching for Voyageurs Lutheran Ministry.
When to Give? All Day Long! Select a time (or two) that fits your schedule, logon, and help us reach our goal of $40,000.
Is there an “off-line” option? YES! simply mail your donation by November14 to VLM (see address below). Be sure to write Give to the Max day in the memo line of your check.

Calling All Kids!
Ages Pre-K - 6th grade. Come and continue to join us every Sunday except for Sunday's when school is on break. We start our time of worship in the sanctuary at 9 am and leave right after the children's sermon. The last Sunday of the month we make treats and serve them during coffee an after church. We will be saving the $ taken in during this time to either give gifts to a family off the angel tree or a gift to one of the missions we support. Our theme this year is God's gifts all around us. The Christmas program will take place Dec 15 during regular worship with a brunch to follow.
We will be asking for a commitment from the kids who regularly attend soon so we can assign parts for the program.
Please invite families with kids to join us on Sunday the more the merrier.
In Christ ; Gods Gifts our hands
