NISSWA — Lutheran Church of the Cross in Nisswa will have an introduction to the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America's Declaration to American Indian/Alaska Native people at 10:40 a.m. July 17.

"This is an opportunity for us to grow together as a synod and become more familiar with the Declaration so that we can all be walking together in the bridge building work before us," church officials said in a news release.

This event is open to anyone who would like to attend.

Deacon Colleen Bernu - Fond Du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa community member, synod minister to Northeastern Minnesota Synod, and team member on Presiding Bishop Eaton's Repudiation of the Doctrine of Discovery Task Force - will facilitate conversation.

The church will provide an opportunity to worship at 9 a.m. for those who are traveling in from other areas. Deacon Colleen will be the guest preacher during worship.
