An invitation from Lord of the Mountains Lutheran Church...
On November 22, 2016 the north walls of the Lord of the Mountains Lutheran Church in Dillon, CO were spray painted with graffiti messages offensive to Christians, Jews, and humanity in general.
On Saturday, June 17, we will transform the negative and hateful messages into a message of love, peace, hope and reconciliation! Join us as we paint a mural starting at 9:00 a.m. It will be a "paint by number" project so that everyone can contribute. (The mural art is donated by artist Bonnie Norling Wakeman; the base paint is donated by Sherwin Williams.)
Summit County community members from all walks of life and faiths are invited to take part in this project of transformation of hate into love, of despair into hope, of violence into peace, and of discord into reconciliation.

Do you know people in town who might enjoy a hearty meal and some fellowship? Invite them to join us as well! If you’re interested in volunteering, see below!
Serving at the Tuesday Night Community Meal
The Tuesday Night Community Dinner at St. John's needs team members to help out once a month. It's a fun way to meet and serve new people. Our volunteers say it's a profoundly rewarding experience!
Volunteers do a variety of tasks, from cooking pans of food to serving dinner and running errands (e.g. picking up loaves of bread donated by the French bakery or by getting the weekly lettuce supply from Hearthstone Restaurant). The Tuesday evening volunteer session runs from 5:30 to 7:30 or so. Dinner is served from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m.
Food ranges from Italian or Mexican casseroles to chili, soup, or the occasional ham or BBQ dinner. We have hotel-sized pans to send home with our cooks, and reimbursement is available. If needed, we have recipes for you. In addition, we often have meat or other leftovers in the freezer at St. John's that is available to our cooks. It takes about two hours to prepare a pan of food, and most of our cooks bring in hot pans right before we serve.
