Have a great time while supporting your neighbors!
The vision for Lutheran Charities’ Community Day and 24th Bike Steeplechase is to actively love our neighbor as ourselves.
- We believe that together as donors and charities we can do more.
- We can do more to serve as Christ’s hands and feet in the world.
- We can do more to share the message of available resources with the community.
The inaugural Community Day & 24th Bike Steeplechase on October 14 will be a wonderful celebration at Green Lane Park, similar to a festival in the Bible – sharing our blessings, giving thanks, spending time with our neighbors, having fun, and supporting those who serve.
