During Advent, the weeks leading up to the Christmas, the members of Christ Lutheran Church of Ladysmith, a mission plant from Redeemer Lutheran Church, Fredericksburg, VA collected canned goods and dedicated the offering from their Wednesday night services to be set aside for the Caroline CountyFoodbank. On Wednesday nights the church members came together for a light dinner and to grow in fellowship and worship together. They will be doing this again on Wednesday Evenings for the 7 weeks of Lent, the church season before Easter. On Christmas Eve at the Children’s service the children each brought canned goods to be donated to the Food Bank.
On January 9, Pastor Carter, Dorothy & Julius Dabelstein and Gary Shaw took the donated food to the Caroline County Food Bank. They also presented them a check for $373.79 topurchase additional food.
