Jesus Justice Jazz Tour Coming to Gustavus

Posted on October 30th, 2009 by

Jesus Justice JazzThe Jesus Justice Jazz tour, a special follow-up event to the 2009 ELCA National Youth Gathering in New Orleans, will make a stop at Gustavus Adolphus College Saturday, Nov. 7.

The 37,000 participants of the National Youth Gathering were left with a charge to change the world in a positive way and to fight world hunger. The Jesus Justice Jazz tour is a chance for youth to come together at a regional gathering to be re-inspired and to tackle the challenge of fighting world hunger.

A service project will be held between 1-2:20 p.m., in which youth will go door-to-door to homes in St. Peter to ask for donations of spare change as part of a “change for change” project. All donations will in turn be donated to ELCA World Hunger. Youth will wear name badges identifying them as part of this project.

Due to the limited time frame, youth may not be able to visit every home in St. Peter. If your home is not visited, and if you would like to donate to this cause to help raise $1 million for world hunger, please bring your donation to Christ Chapel on Saturday, Nov. 7 between 2:30-3:30 p.m.
