Day of Service
More than 80 people volunteered their time last weekend for Faith Lutheran Church’s Day of Service in celebration of its 50th year in town.
Church Council President Kathy Faulk of Andover said the volunteers cleaned the kitchen at Emmaus House in Haverhill, cooked and served the evening meal at Bread and Roses in Lawrence, made brown bag meals for My Brother’s Table, planted 700 bulbs on the church’s South Main Street property, cleared invasive species from Stanley Reservation, cleaned Andover walking trails, delivered and organized food for Andover’s Neighbors in Need, picked apples at Smolak Farms with members of Creative Living in Andover, and washed windows at Ironstone Farm in Andover. They also helped at Lazarus House in Lawrence with painting and the thrift store,
After they finished their work, they returned to the church to share lunch and fellowship.
Last Sunday, 20 church members also participated in the Hike for Hope, raising more than $1,200 for Lazarus House.
