Faith Ministry Stories

Pray, Educate, Connect, Act

Posted on

In September, 2016, St Paul Area Synod Bishop Patricia Lull spoke to Faith Lutheran about the seriousness of human trafficking in our area. Our area is designated in the top four in our nation for human trafficking.  A Faith task force responded:

  • Presented to our Faith Council and several committees
  • Wrote informational articles and prayers for church communications
  • Sponsored Deacon Amy Hartman, Director Emeritus of Cherish All Children to speak at Faith on Sunday, June 11 where she introduced the ELCA approach to end human trafficking: Pray, Education, Connect and Act
  • Attended an informational session at Maranatha Church in Wyoming by Pete Orput, Washington County Attorney
  • Attended a presentation about Human Trafficking at the Forest Lake YMCA given by Imran Ali from the Washington County Attorney office and Paul Kroshus from the Woodbury Police

You are invited to the following education opportunities:

  1. Deacon Amy Hartman will speak at Faith on September 24 at both services
  2. Attend the Women of Faith North Cluster Meeting on October 7
    • Pete Orput, Washington County Attorney, will speak at 9:30 am 
    • Joy McElroy, Cherish All Children St. Paul Prevention Outreach Coordinator, will be available to answer questions from 10:30 am-11:30 am
