Ramp recipient

Last summer, Jackie White sat on her scooter in the alley behind the building shared by First and Santa Cruz Lutheran churches in Joliet, Ill.

She listened to the Bible school children sing, longing to enter the church that wasn’t accessible.

That changed when White became a primary beneficiary of the “Jackie White Project.”

At a dedication ceremony Nov. 23, White was the first to use a ramp built by five ELCA congregations; the Lutheran Outdoor Ministries Center, Oregon, Ill.; and Lutheran Men in Mission.
