Lutheran World Relief
Faith completed collection and distribution for Lutheran World Relief. But it’s already time to start up again! We can be aware of the need for specific items and watch for clearance sales as the seasons change:
- Health kits—soap, towels, toothbrushes, comb, etc.
- Sewing Kits-material, sewing needles, buttons, thread, etc.
- School kits-paper, crayons, scissors, etc.
The "kits" need specific items only, which are on printed lists available in the Fellowship Hall. When collection takes place throughout the year, we increase our LWR shipment for next year! If each family brings just one of each type kit we could easily beat last year’s totals! Join us in this ministry, you will feel wonderful about sharing.
We also make & assemble quilts for LWR. Please join us at our 'Why Knot?' sessions. We meet on the first Monday of the month at 9:30 am, in Rm. 212, for quilt tying & fellowship. All are welcome! Please contact Janet Petersen, or call the church office if you are interested in sewing the quilt tops.
Fair Trade Coffees - Located in the Fellowship Hall!
Through Fair Trade, farmers earn a fair price for their products, have access to affordable credit and gain a long-term trading partner they can trust – all elements missing in the conventional coffee market. With your support, farming communities are able to invest in education, health care and environmentally sustainable farming techniques.
New item!!! Coffee Pillow Packs are on a trial offering at $1 each. They are great for keeping your coffee fresh and for travel too!
We are collecting used clothing for men, women & children. Your donations are given to Friendship Baptist Church, which offers the clothing for free. Clothing must be freshly laundered & in good repair. Bins can be found in the donation rm. next to the outside door. Please contact Karla Howell, or the church office if you have any questions.
