On January 27th, members of the church council and pastor of Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Lansing presented a check for $1,000 to Angie Coltsch for “The Giving Tree” ministry. This local outreach is administered by the Lansing United Methodist Church under Coltsch’s leadership.
They money was raised primarily through a jazz concert called "Jazzed about Christmas,"on December 20th. Tom Bourcier, our musician, performed the concert on the new baby grand piano for a large crowd. It was professionally recorded live by Brett Huus of Soundstrations studio in LaCrosse, Wisconsin.
