Lenten Offering

posted Feb 23, 2015, 3:33 PM by Shannon Vietmeier
During the season of Lent we are invited to the 40-day struggle against sin, death, and the devil. As we struggle, we are called to self-examination, repentance, prayer, fasting, sacrificial giving, and works of love. Some of you have noticed that in your box of envelopes, there are special envelopes for Lenten Offerings (these are the purple bordered envelopes). This year, the council, in good faith, has designated $1000 of money received in these special envelopes to be given for mission support outside of our general operating budget and it will go to local and global ministries we support.
