We are looking for more volunteers to help with the backpack program. Choose the Thursday at 12:30 you would like to help packing the backpacks for students. It takes about an hour with two volunteers doing the packing. Contact Karen Scheuermann with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please join us to hear Nate Zimbars speak during the services on February 18th.
Nate Zimdars hails from Ripon. He studied History and Political Science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Nate returned from a year of service this past July as a volunteer with the ELCA’s Young Adults in Global Mission Program in the West African nation of Senegal. There, he worked at a dairy cooperative, taught English at a local school, and grew accustomed to the hour’s long process of hand washing clothes. His year of service inspired him to deepen his involvement in the ELCA which led him to his current position as a Campaign Interpreter. Nate is excited to travel across the country and share experiences from his year in Senegal while discussing the work of the Global Church. In his free time he enjoys running, finding a back road, watching beautiful sunsets, and spending time with family and friends.
