September 10 was the official kick-off of St. John Lutheran Church's Mission Project for the next year. Each year the church votes on an organization or project to support. After choosing an organization, the church begins raising money to donate and also volunteers their time and effort throughout the year by completing hands-on projects for the chosen organization.
This year's organization is Crossroads Rescue Mission based out of Kearney and Hastings, Nebraska. This organization provides shelter, meals, and God's word to homeless families in the area. It is a faith based group so it doesn't receive any government funding. It relies solely on gifts and donations to keep their doors open.
