The spirit at Faith Lutheran Church in Shreveport, LA, is shown in many ways. One of those ways is the blessing of a nutritious continental breakfast after Sunday school, made by Jackie Dawson. We salute her for taking on this mission even with health issues. We call Jackie “Betty Crocker” because she sometimes brings food she just got out of the oven. Faith thanks Jackie for her service!
