It was another busy weekend at Nativity. One of the highlights – The Sixteenth Annual Dragonfly Project Celebration and Remembrance Event.
The event included a business update from Pete Bonde, music by Rainfall (Duane Johnson, Lee Gilbertson, and Mike Forsberg), a memorial montage with music by Luke Bonde, a candle lighting ceremony, and some beautiful dragonfly stories told by Heidi Leppala and Shara Hanley. A reception followed with good food and more stories shared among friends.
Challenge Donation Match
An anonymous couple have graciously offered to match donations given to The Dragonfly Project today (and through March 25th) up to $2,500. We challenge you to donate today, as your donation can go even further in continuing the mission of sharing a message of hope with those who are grieving.
Donations for this Challenge Match will be counted if donated by March 25, 2018 with a note of “Challenge Match”.
As of 3/22/2018 donations are at $1,700 – just a little more to max out our match donation.

The Dragonfly Project is a mission partner of Nativity Lutheran Church and a nonprofit organization that sends condolence cards carrying a message of hope to people who are grieving. The organization consists of volunteers who look up names in obituaries and help pull together and mail packets out to people who are grieving usually 3-6 months after the death has occurred. Each packet contains a condolence card, a copy of the dragonfly story printed on the inside of the cover and a dragonfly key chain.
