Caring & Sharing: Lutheran World Relief Critters Program

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.

On Sunday, April 2, our littlest members are collecting “Change for Change” to support the Lutheran World Relief Critters Program, which provides sheep (and other critters) to families in need. Every $100 donated provides the gift of a sheep, feed, and basic veterinary care—providing nutrition and income—to a farming family in Burkina Faso, a land-locked country in Africa. We encourage everyone to bring their loose change for our little lambs to collect and share in the joy of giving.
