Update! The collection of coins and other offerings total $750.31 for ELCA World Hunger Relief--thank you!

The ELCA is kicking off a year of emphasis for World Hunger Relief with a special Lenten initiative. We can participate by using a giving calendar as in the past two years. The calendar, available online, increases awareness of the many gifts we receive from God while helping those who are hungry.For the forty days of Lent, count the items listed for each day and add that many coins to a bank. On Easter Sunday, March 27, please bring the coins to church. All proceeds will go for ELCA World Hunger Relief. —Calendar adapted from Rhonda Kindig, The Lutheran, 2013
