Forty Days-Forty Items! Last Wednesday, was the first day of Lent. Your Mission Committee has a challenge for you: A Forty Day Closet Purge! Each day until Easter, we want you to remove one item from your closet or jewelry box and place it in the clear trash bag provided by your Mission Committee (table in Narthex). At the end of Lent, bring the bag to church. We will donate women’s items to the Working Women’s Closet at the Women’s Resource Center and Men’s items to the North Kent Community Services. They will be shared with someone who can really use them, and you will have more room in your closets!
One Great Hour of Sharing Offering. Presbyterians have joined with millions of other Christians through One Great Hour of Sharing to share God’s love with people experiencing need. Our gifts support ministries of disaster response, refugee assistance and resettlement, and community development that help people find safe refuge, start new lives and work together to strengthen their families and communities. The Presbyterian Hunger Program receives 36 percent of undesignated gifts, while Self Development of People and Presbyterian Disaster Assistance each receive 32 percent.
