Low Country Boil Fundraiser Coming Soon!
It’s a Low Country Boil, or “Frogmore Stew”…which is the southeastern coast’s equivalent to a New England clambake. But it’s more than that; it’s also a silent auction with some really interesting items up for bid. But it’s even more than that. This annual event is the major fundraiser for Lutheran Campus Ministry Atlanta, and we need your support. This fall we have added 3 new staff members we want you to meet and our new Passion Collective Missioners, who will spend a year with Pastor Devin Strong’s guidance in an intentional Christian community at Grace House as they discern how their gifts might be used in ministry. These missioners will provide additional leadership for LCM Atlanta as we expand our ministry beyond Georgia Tech to three additional campuses, Georgia State University, Emory University, and Agnes Scott College, and we will be introducing these participants of the Passion Collective at the Low Country Boil.
Yes, we are growing, but unlike a congregation where members contribute to the program, campus ministry is for students, who generally have no income and they are only around for 4 years. Yet we are bringing the good news of Christ to that 18 – 30 year old age group that we don’t see in our churches. This is an important ministry, and you can support it by enjoying a scrumptious meal and a fun evening of fellowship with students and fellow Lutherans from many congregations in the Atlanta area. So on Saturday, August 27nd come on out to Living Grace Lutheran Church in Tucker (1812 Cooledge Rd) at 4:00 pm for this event. Tickets are $50 per person, and anyone under 21 is admitted free! Tickets are $50 and available HERE.Or, you can call/e-mail Derek Peterson (770-971-5868) or Jeff Elkins (404-522-0789, ) so we know how many folks to plan for. As always, folks under 21 are free!
Can you donate an auction item? How about a weekend at your vacation getaway? How about sharing your concert or theater tickets as a donation? Do you have a valuable antique that would attract a lot of attention? Can you provide a service that could be in the auction; i.e., hours of IT assistance? If so, please e-mail Evelyn Cannon.
