FCEMF – Feed My Starving Children Event


Faith Lutheran and First English Lutheran in Appleton, together with ministry partners from all over the Fox River Valley (from Green Bay to Neenah) are pulling together 2,500 volunteers for 15 two-hour shifts to pack 500,000 meals for Feed My Starving Children! That’s half a million meals in 6 days, July 16-21. Three packing sites, dozens of partners, and the help of the Appleton School District.

We could use your help in filling the volunteer spots; about 700 of them remain. You and your family, your staff, friends, neighbors … anyone over 5 years old can participate. And I promise, it really is fun and rewarding; and the time will go by very quickly. You can make a huge impact in the two hours you pack. With the other volunteers in your shift, you can feed dozens and dozens of kids for an entire year.

Visit the Fox Cities MobilePack website to register: Simply click on “Donate & Volunteer.”

1 Community. 3 Sites. 6 Days. 2,500 Volunteers. Half a Million Meals. Feeding Starving Children. Making a Lasting Impact.

Thanks and God bless!

FCEMF – Opportunities

I’m wondering if you might help me get the word out on two opportunities?

· “Second Half Ministry: Reaching the 50+ Generation” Saturday, August 11, 9:00am – 3:00pm here at Green Lake Conference Center. The seminar will help lead pastors, church staff, leadership teams, small group leaders and lay people respond to the 50+ growing population. Seminar and lunch: $40.50 (plus tax on lunch). Overnight package: $139.50 (plus tax on meals) includes seminar, lodging Friday night and breakfast & lunch on Saturday. To register call 920-294-3323. The three topics are: 1) Passing the Leadership Baton, 2) Inter-generational Ministry and 3) Challenges and Treasures of the 50+ Generation. A detailed description is on our website: Click on “conferences” then “Pastors and Ministry Leaders” and then scroll down to “Second Half Ministry.” You could make a pdf and attach it or I could have a pdf sent to you or even have a quantity of flyers sent to you to hand out.

· “Second Half Ministry Conferences” that I lead for denominations, regions/districts, churches and conferences around the country. A list of seminars is on my website: Last month I was privileged to be the key presenter at the aging conference at Johns Hopkins University and again for the ninth year led three sessions at the Moody Pastors’ Conference. I’m now lining up dates for 2013. My latest book, Aging Successfully has just been released and is endorsed by Dr. Paul Nyquist, Dr. Gary McIntosh and Dr. Gene Getz.

I will deeply appreciate it if you pass this information on to pastoral leadership.
