God’s Work Our Hands
We enjoyed some wonderful fellowship on Sunday, September 15th during the “God’s Work Our Hands” Synod-wide event. Our members cooked and baked, so that we were able to prepare 61 meals plus 18 desserts to distribute to those in need. For many people it’s helpful to have healthy meals ready to heat up, without having to cook from scratch. We plan to continue this project in the future. Thank you to all who contributed!
We collect back to school supplies for local foster children. In a joint effort between Youth & Social Ministry, Faith Lutheran has collected donations for backpacks and school supplies for over the past 8 years to provide to Community Partnership for Children (CPC). This agency serves local children in foster care. For the 2019-2020 school year we collected 75 backpacks and supplies to fill them all!
The Angel Tree ministry here at Faith Lutheran has always been very successful! These children have a parent that is incarcerated. Many of them feel that their parent has abandoned them. At Christmas they receive a gift that is “from that parent.” Can you imagine the joy in their little hearts when they realize that their parent was thinking of them and sent them a gift?! It is an amazing feeling for them and a tremendous blessing! We hang angels from a tree with gift requests and our members, friends and family members pick an angel, shop for them and wrap the gifts. We then have a party for them where they fellowship with us and pick up their gifts. In 2018 we also provided Christmas dinner baskets and gift cards for their families. In 2018 we were able to sponsor 26 children. We exceeded our goal!
