Glory Baptist Church of Aitkin held its annual Hunters’ Supper on the opening Saturday of firearms deer season 2019.
The church has hosted this meal for over 40 years. Over 400 people were served meals and more than 75 people worked the event. After event costs are covered, Glory Baptist Church donates the remaining funds from the free-will offering to local projects. Sowing Seeds for God and Aitkin County Habitat for Humanity were selected to be the recipients of the proceeds. Pastor Chris Meirose was able to deliver a check for $1,700 to both organizations.
Sowing Seeds for God Ministries operates recovery houses for men and women coming out of rehab and who are learning how to live sober and clean. Glory Baptist has supported this ministry for a number of years. “Addiction of various kinds is a significant problem in Aitkin County and we want to do all we can to help change that. Sowing Seeds provides a safe, sober and supportive environment to help people find new ways to live,” said Mary Dinger.

Aitkin County Habitat for Humanity partners with families with limited income to build and rehabilitate houses. Homeowners invest hundreds of hours of labor, and are able to finance their new home at no profit to Habitat with affordable loan terms. Glory has previously supported Habitat for Humanity financially, and will also contribute work hours on upcoming projects.
