Bethesda hosts event to raise hunger awareness

Bethesda Lutheran Church will host a "Jesus' jailbirds" event to raise hunger awareness and collect money and food for the local food shelf.

This event will take place beginning at noon Saturday, November 20, concluding after the morning service on Sunday, November 21. This is a lock-in style event for all junior and senior high school teens. Children from the community are welcome to participate, and all others are welcome to visit and donate.

The participants will be "jailed," armed only with cell phones and address books. The goal is to have enough friends and family bring in food and monetary donations to set them "free."

Many fun activities and learning events are planned throughout the night. For information or to sign up, contact Jim or Kristal Odden at (320) 763-3681 or e-mail
