Thanks for supporting Faith In Action

Thank you for supporting Faith In Action

Thank you to all who attended the sixth annual P.T.L. (Praise the Lord) Concerts at Calvary Church on Aug. 16. 

Both the afternoon and evening performances were well attended, and all donations received will directly support the work of Faith In Action for Cass County, whose volunteers provide rides, homemaking, yard work, friendly visiting, respite care, delivery of Meals On Wheels and ramp building to help people remain in their homes and communities. 

Many thanks are needed for all who helped with the promotion, set up and performance in this event. Special thanks go out to Calvary Four Plus One, which includes Jeff Corn, Chet Kelm, Jim Olander and Doug Pitt; as well as the other concert performers, Carol Gustafson, P.J. Matthews, Pamela Burnett, Marilyn Bonk, Ryan Pels, Ron Brauer, Russ and Loralee Torkelson, and Pastor Judy Gustafson. 

It is a blessing to see these people using their talents to God’s glory. A hearty thank you also goes out to Mona Bean, who did a fantastic job of emceeing the event.

We would also like to thank Calvary Church for providing the use of its facilities and for supporting this fundraiser, as well as all the businesses who donated door prizes.

The success of this event belongs to everyone who participated, gave a “helping hand,” attended or supported Faith In Action with prayer, service or financial donations. 

With your help we are able to continue serving our neighbors in need throughout Cass County.
