MIFFLINBURG — Members of the congregations of the Upper Susquehanna Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America will celebrate outdoor ministries this month.

Congregations will celebrate the annual “Mount Luther Sunday” Feb. 23. The Upper Susquehanna Synod Council of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America has designated that day be “Mount Luther Sunday” to help promote outdoor ministries in the synod.

Mount Luther is an extension of the ministry that is done in local Lutheran congregations. The camp is asking that congregations promote the camp on that Sunday or designate another Sunday this spring to do so.

Ways to promote the camp include bulletin inserts to share with congregation members, Temple Talks, camper testimonials, bulletin board displays, special camp music during Sunday school and church services as well as collecting special offerings. All are expected to be done during this event.
