LENTEN OFFERINGS

Using part of this year's Lenten offerings for the 2020 Faith Build with Habitat for Humanity and Compassionate Care Partners allows us to continue, God's Work. Our Hands., for families right here in our community! Habitat's mission is to build safe, affordable housing with people in the United States and around the world, and that comes from a desire to put God’s love into action. We are God’s hands and feet, here to serve others and show them His love. The tangible experiences that Habitat provides allow you to engage those around you, live your faith and offer a unique opportunity to love your neighbor.
The Compassionate Care Partners (CCP) was started in 2006 and has trained over 60 retired RNs for this program, which is staffed & utilized by several members of our own congregation. There is about 40% attrition due to age of the nurses and sickness in their own families, which is why our offering will greatly benefit this organization.

KINDNESS ROCKS

The Outreach Committee would like to participate in cultivating connections within our community, and lift others up through simple acts of kindness. Every Wednesday during the Lenten season, there will be an area where you can help decorate or write a simple message on one side of a rock. Different messages on what the recipients can do with the rocks will also be available. The point of the KINDESS ROCK is simple. Take one when you need one. Share one with a friend who needs some inspiration. Or leave one for another to find. One message at just the right moment can change a person’s whole day.
