Serve through Sharing

ShirtsYou may see a lot of teal bags during the season of Lent at church… We are distributing them to anyone who wants to participate in the challenge Pastor made at the beginning of Lent to give away one article of clothing for each of the 40 days of Lent. You’ve heard the scripture from Ecclesiastes, “A time to keep, and a time to cast away.” This is a good time to pare down and give new life to items you no longer wear.

Beginning on Ash Wednesday teal bags were given to take home and use as a reminder and as a collection receptacle. When your bag is full, bring it to church, remove your items from the bag and pack them into a box in the gathering space. Then take the bag home again and begin filling it again.

Shirts.2.At the end of Lent we will donate all these items to our mission partners. The teal bags will also be donated so those who receive items at a clothing donation center can take them home in a bag that holds some dignity.

Purchase of the bags was made possible through a grant by

Thrivent Financial.

Lots of donations are coming in.  Thank You!!  Keep them coming!
