Lent 2018

Through March 25, we ask you to use your special Lenten envelopes to provide an offering for the work of the The James Project of Latin America (JPLA). This ministry began in 1999 with the purpose of distributing food, clothing and other items from the United States to widows and orphans in Guatemala. JPLA has grown since then and is still growing as it continues to serve this most vulnerable population through Shadow of His Wings Children’s Home, Evangelical Freedom School, and their Redeemed Women’s Empowerment Program. JPLA’s goal is to provide the women and children they serve with the support they need to overcome their past, have successful futures, and walk with the Lord Jesus Christ. 

Help Feed Your Neighbors

Throughout the weeks of Lent, Feb. 14-March 25,  the blue bin will once again be placed in the narthex to receive non-perishable food items to support the pantry at St. Paul in Eggertsville. Of particular need: toilet paper, paper towels, cooking oils, juice/juice boxes, healthy snacks salad dressings (blue cheese, ranch, french, etc), coffee/tea, cereal

Blanket Project

Blankets are being made for children in foster care.  The local foster care system distributes 100 blankets a month. Our group will create no-sew blankets that can be made in one night and delivered to the Child Advocate Center on Franklin St. with tags that say "This blanket belongs to: _________" and the child will be able to write there name on it.  This way they will always be able to have at least one thing that is their own. We meet the third Thursday of each month from 6-8 at the church - If people can't come to the church at that time but want to donate a blanket each month, or just once, or as many as they like, they can bring them to the church.  Lisa Martin will bring them to the Center which is located on Franklin Street. Contact LISA MARTIN lam@surfam.com for more details.

Please Help! 

Lutheran Disaster Response’s affiliate is actively present, collaborating with community leaders and officials to initiate the proper responses, particularly the long-term recovery efforts. Together, we have a strong history of working with disasters in the United States. Recovery efforts are expected to take years, and Lutheran Disaster Response will be there to accompany those affected through every phase of this disaster.  Click here for details.

Dash's food receipts continue to be collected and deposited in the box located in the coat room 
received are used to help the local needs of the hungry.
