Central Freeborn Lutheran Church, 74427 245th St., Albert Lea, will hold a soup and pie supper from 4 to 7 p.m. Monday. Proceeds from the supper will benefit Rob Moszer, son of Barry and Wendy Moszer of Albert Lea and grandson of Earl and Ruth Thompson. Rob Moszer has been diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease.

Moszer’s mobility issues and problems gripping with his hands have made it impossible for him to work in his job as a policeman in Aurora, Colo. He is being treated with intravenous antibiotics at a new clinic in Colorado Springs. He is also working with a physical therapist in the hopes of stopping the progression of the symptoms and disability.

Moszer and his wife, Rachel, life in Castle Rock, Colo.
