Partner in Ministry: Bridge of Peace in Camden

Bridging Sacred Stories

Dear Mission Partners, Prayer Partners and Friends,

Join us to hear how the Delaware Mission District is seeking to partner together to address a $22,000 shortfall in the spending plan of Bridge of Peace Community Church, ELCA.

Bridge of Peace has been receiving funding from the ELCA as a newly organized congregation since 2006 and no longer qualifies for funding under this category. We need everyone’s thoughts and prayers to keep this vital ministry with and among people living in poverty continuing into the future. Come share sacred stories and be the church together.

We are asking pastors, congregational leaders, and social ministry representatives to join us Friday, Nov. 17, 2017, 7:30pm at Temple Lutheran Church in Pennsauken, NJ.

In Christ’s Service,
Delaware Mission District
Bridge of Peace Event Planning Team
