The purpose of the Old Town Cross Star Ministry is, initially to connect with active duty military personnel through their own request or by the request of a family member or a friend to let them know they are being thought of and remembered while on active duty. Old Town Elder Norm Zeilinger and his wife Christel will contact the military personnel either through the United States Postal Service or by electronic mail (e-mail). The messages will be short and meaningful with an emphasis on Biblical Scripture intended to encourage and support them while on active duty. Special messages will also be sent for Birthdays, Holidays, anniversaries, etc.
It should be noted that Norm has first-hand knowledge on how uplifting and meaningful cards and letters can be as he always looked forward to them while he served in the USAF. God has given Norm a passion for military personnel and the commitment they each make to themselves and to their country. Norm also understands the pride family and friends have and prays that the "Old Town Church" would share this pride by supporting this ministry with prayers, for those currently serving our nation.
