Memories of Mine
A tribute to our area's mining history is going to be built near United's parking lot retaining wall. As many of you know, the boulders in the retaining wall are from the Old Bristol Mine area. Therefore we are offering the opportunity for folks to make a donation to have a plaque attached to one of the boulders in memory of loved ones who once worked or were affected by the mining industry. We are asking for donations of $100 - $400, depending on the size of the boulder you would like. Print the following form and mail it along with a check made out to United Lutheran Church: Memories of Mine form
We are a church that rolls up its sleeves. Lutheran Disaster Response is there helping those in need.
What you can do:
1. Pray for the communities as they work to recover.
2. Give. Know that 100 percent of your donation will be used to help families affected by this disaster. Click on the following link if you would like more info or would like to contribute. http://www.elca.org/Our-Work/Relief-and-Development/Lutheran-Disaster-Response
