Deacon Vicki Hanrahan will be co-leading worship there on Wednesday, August 21. If you are in the area of the synod office and would be able to sacrifice one of your copies of the ELW for this important cause, please do drop it off at the synod office by August 20. Deacon Vicki will hand-deliver them to CCI on August 21. Thank you so much for your prayerful consideration!
