Love INC

Note added Oct. 6 - since this was posted we've moved ahead with the preliminary steps toward discerning whether it makes sense to move toward developing a Love INC affiliate in the Dassel-Cokato area. I encourage you to take a look at a little webpage dedicated to the discernment process.

Written August 20:

The following email was sent out a few moments ago to our Crossroads email list.  One of the links below is for a video that explains what "LOVE INC" is all about.  In our Dassel-Cokato area we are blessed blessed with food shelves and thrift stores. Let's pray about a next step and a DC area "Love INC" affiliate!  Let me know if you're interested in looking into this alongside others in our community.

Crossroads Friends -

Who would like to join me in looking into this?  (See below.)  I believe that our area would greatly benefit by having a Love Inc. affiliate in our community.  (I'm sending the same message out to the other churches in the DC area.)

Please reply or otherwise let me know.

Thank you.

Pastor Steve

My goal is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love,

I am interested in helping start a new Love Inc affiliate in my community. I serve as pastor of Crossroads Community Church in Cokato, MN. There are two Love Inc affiliates nearby, one based out of Delano, the other in Buffalo, MN. Neither of them serve our "Dassel-Cokato" community, roughly determined by the boundaries of the DC school district -

I'd love to share more about this dream so please contact me by email or by phone - 763-291-3499 (cell).
