‘ANCHOR’ED IN LOVE — Union City’s Faith Lutheran Church’s Lutheran Women’s Missionary League has adopted the local Anchor House the past two years as a local mission project. This year, the Paducah (Ky.) Zone Fall LWML Rally was hosted by the church in Union City and members from Murray, Ky., Hopkinsville, Ky., Bowling Green, Ky., Paducah, Ky., Paris and Clarksville attended and enjoyed a day of Bible study, devotions and mission discussion. A love offering was accepted and Anchor House was chosen as the recipient. LWML president Carolyn Miesner (second from left) and Central West Tennessee Thrivent Records Director Kimberly Elliott (right) presented a check for $650 to Anchor House board chairman Clinton Sleadd (left) and house manager Layne Brasher. The check included $400 from the love offering and matching funds in the amount of $250 from Thrivent, a Lutheran fraternal organization. Sleadd and Brasher provided a program for the rally and described the work of Anchor House as a halfway house for those who have completed a treatment program for addictions and are in need of assistance in finding their productive places in society. Both Sleadd and Brasher shared their own stories of overcoming addictions and the role Anchor House plays in their lives. Over the past two years, the local LWML group has collected needed items such as canned goods, toiletry items, staples and more for Anchor House and has invited spokesmen for the group to take part in several programs.
