Lent is a time for particular focus on Jesus life and death. A tradition at First Saint Paul’s is rather than “give up something,” we "take up something” in the way of showing the love of Christ to the needy through acts of giving. Throughout the season of Lent each year, our congregation supports several social ministries.
During the 9:30 a.m. service on Sunday, March 26, we will learn about Lutheran World Relief Project Promise: Baby Care Kits. Lutheran World Relief distributes Baby Care Kits as part of emergency relief efforts and to encourage expectant women to seek prenatal care. The kits include new t-shirts, sleepers, receiving blankets, socks, and other items.
First Saint Paul’s is seeking donations of items as well as money to complete and ship the kits. Then, following the Sunday service on Mother’s Day (May 14th), we invite you to join an all-group Faith Nurturing activity where friends and family of FSP will assemble and prepare the kits for distribution to people in need. Find more information and guidelines on the LWR Project Promise: Baby Care Kits web page.
