Celebration supports projects for the needy

-A A +A

A Celebration of God’s Abundance took place on Sept. 23 at Saint Luke Lutheran Church in Ocean Isle Beach.
The morning started when the Rev. Roy A Maack, a guest preacher from the Food for the Poor ministry, a gospel-based ministry that serves the poorest of the poor in 16 Latin American countries by raising orphans in Christian homes, digging wells, building homes, feeding the hungry and helping the elderly.
His sermon was followed by a light lunch, giving everyone the opportunity to support a free-will offering that will be given to his ministry.
The second annual pie judging contest was won by Carol Lindquist, who made a pumpkin pie.
A small country store with a variety of homemade items such as peanut brittle, dried herbs, baked goods, canned preserves, salsa and a variety of “Recipes in a Jar” were available for purchase. All proceeds go toward supporting Stewardship’s 100 Wells Project.
