COS asks for 47-cent offering
This weekend at Christ Our Shepherd Lutheran Church, Peachtree City, each worshiper will be invited to contribute 47 cents for Hurricane Katrina relief. Many devastated areas are in the Southeastern Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, of which Christ Our Shepherd is a part, and local funds are being exhausted. Dividing the needs by the number of members in the synod produced the 47¢ figure. Crews from Christ Our Shepherd have been among the 18,546 ELCA volunteers helping to repair homes. For more information, call the church, 770-487-8717.
