The 2012 Annual Gathering of Network Leaders for Project Connect was held April 18-20 at Gettysburg Seminary. Network Leaders from the Eastern Cluster (Regions 7, 8, and 9 of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America) participated in a service component, building upon what they recently learned and discussed in vocational discernment retreats. Working together with Pastor Matthew Martin, Regional Manager of New England for Outreach Inc. - Kid's Care, the group put together meal packages that will provide over 18,000 meals for undernourished children. The meal packs will be donated to the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank. The Network Leaders also brought personal and congregational donations to help pay for the food and supplies.
Project Connect, a project of the Easter Cluster of Lutheran Seminaries, is comprised of seminaries, colleges, camps, campus ministries, pastors, lay leaders, congregations, social ministry organizations, volunteer organizations like Lutheran Volunteer Corps and the Lutheran Student Movement and young adults in the eastern U.S. providing programs of vocational discernment for college-age adults with theological integrity.
