Second in a Series
Mike Lloyd, Executive Director of Community Emergency Service (CES) is the next speaker in the Serving Outside the Church series.
CES is a non-profit crisis relief and empowerment community outreach that extends God’s love to those in the inner city of South and North Minneapolis. Inspired by the philanthropy of Russel Lund, Sr (of Lund’s Foods) and the vision of Pastor William Berg, CES was organized in 1971 as an outreach of Augustana Lutheran Church of Minneapolis. It began with the purpose of offering a one-stop, personal approach for crisis aid for the inner city’s poorest residents. CES staff and its 1,000 volunteers are on the frontlines of providing hope and compassion to multi-generational, multi-cultural, low-income residents of Minneapolis.
After a brief time of fellowship, you can bring your coffee and snack with you to Mike’s presentation.
