Onalaska, WI – First Lutheran Church located in the heart of Onalaska, Wisconsin, kicked off it’s “Our Church ☩ Our Time” Capital Stewardship Campaign with a morning brunch celebration filled with food, speakers, and warm fellowship. Pastor Jason Stanton and Campaign Chair Todd Lofald shared First Lutheran’s vision for the future to over 160 members and regular attendees. John McHugh gave a heartwarming keynote address inspiring and encouraging the church to live a faithful, love-filled life, while Pastor Stanton noted campaign pledging is very strong to date having raised almost $433,000 from about 24 advance gift donors but will still take equal sacrifice from all members to reach and surpass our goal of $2.1 million. The campaign is being fast tracked and is to run for approximately eight more weeks hoping to contact and visit each of the 575 First Lutheran Church households.
Equally enthusiastic for the progress of the campaign to date is Vision & Leadership team president Larry Schreiner. James D. Klote and Associates Consultant, John Morrison added, “This event was filled with joy and love and a hope for a bright future at First Lutheran. It is truly an honor to be working with so many wonderful people. I am confident the best is yet to come.”
