For the month of DECEMBER we are collecting:
Canned fruit, chunky soups, pastas, canned meats such as Spam, chili, tuna, chicken
Soon you’ll be making a list and checking it twice — and there’s usually someone who “has everything”. Consider a gift given in that person’s name for someone, somewhere who really is in need. The ELCA Good Gifts website has an astonishing variety to chose from:
- A high-efficiency wood stove for places that have no other fuel.
- Make it possible for a girl to go to school in a place that only educates boys
- A flock of chickens (plus a rooster) to provide an ongoing source of eggs, meat and income for a farmer.
Easy to do , and very little of your cost goes to administrative expense.
For faith is a free work, to which no one can be forced. Nay, it is a divine work, done in the Spirit, certainly not a matter which outward authority should compel or create.
We are sending our college students some Christmas joy to encourage and support them throughout their exams and Christmas season. Please consider contributing a $5 gift card or two from popular college establishments such as: Subway, Starbucks, Walgreens, Walmart, Panera, Target, etc.
We will have a collection box in the Mission Room through Sunday, December 6th. The cards will be mailed on Monday, December 7th.
