Go forth and multiply

Iowa church asks members to multiply their talent

Redeemer Lutheran Church, Waverly, Iowa, from May to September asked members to multiply their talent — $5 to be precise.

Redeemer Lutheran Church, Waverly, Each was given the money with the instruction to "go forth and multiply," returning their profits from $1,500 by Sept. 30.

They raised $4,000, giving half to Turning Point Transitional Housing to help victims of domestic violence and half to Redeemer youth attending the 2012 ELCA Youth Gathering.

A matching gift from a member went to ELCA International Disaster Response.
