Care Packages for Military or College Members Who Are Away From Home
The Ladies Guild coordinates the collection of donations for our College and Military members who are away from home!
There is a collection box in the Narthex for anyone who wishes to donate school supplies, laundry/cleaning supplies, personal hygiene items, snacks, or anything else that would benefit our college and military members. The collection will continue throughout February and the packages will be sent out in March. If you have questions or would like to make a monetary donation, please see Jodi Derby, Rhonda Roth or Carrie Kolb.
Reverse Advent Calendar
The congregation supported the 8th Grade Confirmation Class in their effort to donate boxes of food to needy families before Christmas. Each day from Thanksgiving through December 17th, an item was added to a box at home and on Sunday, December 18th, filled boxes were brought to church. The boxes filled 2 vehicles and were shared with the local Southeast Nebraska Community Action (SENCA) program, filling their open pantry.
Operation Christmas Child
Sunday School Children collected small items to fill Operation Christmas Child boxes through the month of October! These items were packed in plastic shoe boxes in November and sent to children in other countries who may not receive anything else at Christmas. We love to share the love of Jesus with those children. The congregation donated items like Playdough, Crayons, watercolors, stickers, glue sticks, coloring books, tape, dolls, balls, stuffed animals and other toys. They also included personal care items, clothing, and school supplies.
