Great River Family Host Week Feb. 25 – March 4

Four times a year – for one week at a time – Central Lutheran is a Host Congregation that provides overnight lodging, meals (supper, breakfast, and brown-bag lunch), and hospitality. As a host congregation, we provide lodging for three to four families (up to fourteen individuals) from 5:00 7:30 a.m. the next morning.

Volunteers are the heart of our program and mission; without them, it cannot exist. Volunteers provide a variety of services: cooking and serving meals, playing with children or helping them with homework, and assisting our staff at the Day Center. Beyond providing lodging and meals at the churches, volunteers interact with the guests, treating them with respect and responding with compassion.

Please join us as a volunteer during the week of Feb 25 – March 4.  You can sign up on Sunday mornings or contact Maureen Baty at or 763-441-2363 to learn more.
