Our Savior Lutheran Church (OSLC) in Hanover filled their “Jesus Boat” with 277 lbs. of donated food and clothing! They used the boat during their Easter Vigil service to tell the story of Jonah and the whale; the boat was filled with their confirmation students and the story was reenacted on the stormy sea, with the boat spinning to and fro. After the service the confirmation class challenged the congregation to “fill the Jesus Boat” for the Haven! The boat remained in the church entryway for the congregation and others to fill until the grand finale on Sunday, June 2, when the boat was wheeled back into the sanctuary to give the congregation a great view of what they had done. Thank you to John Erickson of Norwich, VT for building the boat and sending us this story!
