Our Doors are Open to Everyone, especially for prayer...

"This [CommUNITY Health Fair] outreach event was an introduction to helping families within our community understand that we care about them in every area of health; social, spiritual, physical, mental and emotional," said 2012 $1,000 LCEF MNS District Grant Winner, Trinity First Lutheran School of Minneapolis. "We also wanted to let them know that our doors are open to everyone, especially for prayer."

Trinity First School held their CommUNITY Health Fair on Saturday, March 9th 2013. This was an outreach opportunity to help the people of our neighborhood by putting their health first. Vendors, raffles, and healthy snacks were all part of the event.

"We are planning on making this an annual event to be held each spring here at Trinity First," Carrie Butcher of Trinity First commented. "Our goal is to gain more attendees and to make this a community known event."
