Easter Basket Ministry 2021
As an outreach to those in our community who may be in need of some assistance celebrating the Risen Christ this year, we are planning to provide some financial help in the form of gift certificates for 60-70 families to purchase items for Easter dinner and Easter basket supplies for the kids. If you know of a family within our church or in the community who could use some help, please forward the name and contact information in confidence to Lance Lambert at 414-529-4662 or to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 21. Families must be registered to participate. The Easter Basket Gift Certificate pickup will be on Palm Sunday, March 28, from 11:00 am-1:00 pm at the church.
2021 Sunday School Lenten Mission Project
Helping others is a family activity. Fill the Ark is a four-week Lenten devotional with a focus on gratitude for our blessings and a generous spirit of giving to our neighbors in need. Each week shares a scripture as the focus for reflection. Each day includes information about Heifer’s work, links to videos, stories, fun activities, and discussion questions. Daily giving challenges bring families together to appreciate their abundance and collect change to help struggling families. The calendar teaches stewardship to children and reminds us of our daily blessings and how we can bless families all over the world. Coins of Love for March will also support Fill the Ark. Money collected will be sent to Heifer International to be used where most needed. As you prepare your hearts for the upcoming Easter season, please continue to feed your faith by feeding the hungry. Please contact the church office for a Fill the Ark Calendar. Each Sunday take time to pray as a family for this mission project and for the people who will benefit from your gifts. Please mail your gift to church office.

Lent: Fasting on Food March
We observe Lent to prepare our hearts for the ultimate celebration, Easter. Beginning on Ash Wednesday and lasting through Holy Saturday, Christians have traditionally observed Lent by fasting, repenting, and almsgiving (a term describing generosity toward those who have less than we do). This March please consider LENT: FASTING ON FOOD–Your sacrifice during Lent-Offered as a source of help for the needy. Please follow the Lenten calendar and collect the items listed. Please drop off the items at church during Holy Week.
