“Flavorful Fall Fair” benefits ELCA Malaria Campaign


​Here’s a wonderful story of creative fundraising that comes from the community of Jewell, IA.

Colored turkeys await the results of the coloring contest voting at Bethesda Lutheran Church in Jewell, IA!

Members of Bethesda Lutheran Church in Jewell, IA hosted a Flavorful Fall Fair on November 6 for the community of Jewell.  All proceeds from the evening benefited the ELCA Malaria Campaign, through the efforts of the Northeastern Iowa Synod.

During the evening, baked and craft items donated by congregation members were sold.

A coloring contest was held for all.  Winners of the coloring contest were determined by the amount of money (votes) given and prizes were awarded in each of 6 age groups.

Bethesda Lutheran Church members and friends enjoy the abundance of the Flavorful Fall Fair, a fundraiser for the ELCA Malaria Campaign.

Beautiful tables were set and hosted by members of the congregation with approximately 110 in attendance.  In total, $2,562.71 was raised. This money will be  matched by church funds for a total contribution of $5,125.42.

Thank you, Bethesda Lutheran Church in Jewell, IA and the Northeastern Iowa Synod!
