One of the things of which I love to remind people is that God is for us…not against us. And because God is for us, I want to the world around us to know the we, Jesus followers, are for them too. And I also want to St. Croix Valley to know the Midcurrent is for our community!
That’s why I am excited about an upcoming event that we have an opportunity to host at Midcurrent. Operation HELP and Hudson Area Backpack and Food Programs, along with Grace Place (New Richmond) and Our Neighbor’s Place (River Falls), are teaming up under the banner of River Valley Charities to bring “Coldest Night of the Year” to St. Croix County. This winter walk is all about raising funds and awareness for local programs that offer support to those experiencing hunger, homelessness, and hurt.
On February 24, 2024, the streets of downtown Hudson and Lakefront Park will come alive for this event which will be the first ever in northwestern Wisconsin! Those who participate will be walking in solidarity alongside more than 150 communities across North America, all with the same goal in mind: to help provide shelter, food, and emergency financial assistance to our neighbors in need.
As this event will be happening right out our front door, we have been asked to help provide a gathering space before and after the walk. And because we want to be the best neighbor we can be to the city of Hudson and surrounding communities, we knew we had to say YES!

And if you are at all interested in teaming up with us to be the best host possible, reply to this email to let me know.
One last thing–I hope to see you for Week 2 of our new series, Back to the Basics. We’ll talk about how something so simple can be the key to an effective spiritual life.
