Heritage Day: July 29, 2018

Heritage Day
Sunday, July 29, 2018
Program at 3:00 p.m., followed by potluck supper
Theme: Inspiration through the Lens

This year we will be celebrating the churches of Lac qui Parle County and history of the
75th Anniversary of the Madison Lutheran Home. You will also have a chance to meet Kelly Lund, the photographer who took the church pictures. The program will start at 3:00 followed by an old-fashioned church potluck supper.

Pastor Elan Hacker will speak on “It’s All Good; Perspectives from the Pulpit” Serving in
small rural churches is incredible, beautiful, and heart-wrenchingly holy. Sometimes it is also
laugh out loud funny. Elan has served the churches in this area in one capacity or another since 1997, as a Youth Director, Lay Minister, Synodically Authorized Minister, Vicar, and now as an ordained Pastor.

Sally Fernholz will share some of the information she has collected about the early history
of the Madison Lutheran Home. It was organized in 1943 when eighty-three Lutheran congregations, mostly in western Minnesota, banded together to form the Lutheran Old People’s Home. It was founded to fulfill the Norwegian Lutheran Churches’ mission to minister to the elderly. Sally will share many more details about the home on Heritage Day.
