Churches, cemetery groups plan events


Lutheran World Relief Awareness Sunday will be March 25 at Christ Lutheran Church of Elm Creek. The many quilts, kits, and soap collected during the past year will be dedicated during the worship services. After the 10:30 a.m. service, a potluck meal of beans, rice, and bread will be served. This simple meal is a reminder of those who survive daily on much less than we do. A representative of the Southwestern Texas Synod Poverty Task Force will speak after lunch to offer information about the synod’s efforts to reduce poverty.
