Thank you to everyone who saved and contributed their change for the 40 Days of Giving. Due to your overwhelming generosity, we were able to donate $732 to the ELCA for their World Hunger campaign. Your efforts to help those in need are greatly appreciated.
The ELCA has a program for Lent to assist with their World Hunger program. We would like to participate as a congregation. We are asking everyone to please save your change at the end of each day. On Easter Sunday, bring all of your coins to the church and place in the Easter Basket for World Hunger. It’s amazing how fast the spare change can add up, and it can make such a difference in the fight against world hunger. So please consider helping with this collection and have your kids participate too!
Note: Please DO NOT put your coins in the collection plates on Sundays during Lent- save them up and bring them all on Easter Sunday.

BUCK A CHICK IS BACK FOR LENT! During Lent, Sunday school children and other members can purchase and decorate this paper chick for themselves or in honor of friends and loved ones. Each chick costs only $1.00.The funds raised will benefit ELCA World Hunger and help provide families in need with chickens, other animals and the resources they need to escape hunger and poverty for good. When they are just months old chickens begin laying eggs, which make nutritious meals for families who are hungry. The many extra eggs are often enough to allow a family to start a small business by selling them for additional income. The purchased chicks will hang in a prominent spot in the windows of the narthex – let’s give up to give back!
Thanks to everyone who braved the cold, windy weather to help pack lunches for Micah Ministries. We look forward to warmer weather that will bring more opportunities to reach out to our community through service.
