    (ST. GEORGE, Utah) - (+Video) Two local service groups joined together to raise funds for a donation to Solomon's Porch Foursquare Fellowship to help in their efforts to feed the hungry. Representatives from the St. George Exchange Club and the Thrivent Financial for Lutherans Canyonlands Chapter presented two checks for a gift of $1,500 to Pastor Jimi and Rickine Kestin on Sunday, Aug. 25 for the weekly Sunday Feast sponsored by the Foursquare Church.

    Exchange Club president Brett Labrum said that on Aug. 3, members held a yard sale at the Hurst Stores' parking lot and raised $1050.

    Labrum said, "I was pleased with the turnout, and its nice to be able to participate in functions like this. Having a yard sale in the heat, it helped to know that our efforts were going to a good cause."

    Neal Smith, chairman of the fundraiser and a member of the Thrivent Financial for Lutherans donated a check from Thrivent for $450. This is one of the group's many projects in an ongoing goal to help the community.

    According to Thrivent's website, it said, "As a fraternal benefit society, Thrivent Financial for Lutherans operates more than 1,300 local groups of members called chapters. The chapter system is a way for members to help their greater community through volunteering activities, educational events and social activities."

    All present at the Foursquare Church and those attending the gifting ceremony joined in the Sunday Feast, prepared by Rickine Kestin and her volunteers. The Sunday Feast is served every Sunday at noon for anyone in need of a home-cooked meal.

    "A day like today reminds us of the groups of diversity which are following their callings and missions statements--to work together to support the Sunday Feast," Pastor Jimi Kestin said. "With today's community of unity, the underpinning message is more powerful than the money. The unity builds and transcends."
