And the results are in!! The Confirmation Class’s Church World Service Mission Blanket Drive is a HUGE success! They raised $1500, that’s enough for 50 – yes, FIFTY! – blankets through Church World Service. These blankets are distributed throughout the world by Church World Service for disaster-stricken areas and the homeless.
Of the three students, Eliza Seifert, Samarra Quick and Mason Swanson, the top fundraiser is Eliza, so Pastor Pam gets to bake her some homemade bread. Stay tuned for more details on this bread baking experience, it will be a first!
Thank you for all of your support for these great mission-focused students as they learn about the outreach work that they are called to do as Christians and members of our church’s community. To find out more about Church World Service, please visit cwsglobal.org.
“…for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, 36 I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.’ 37 Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink? 38 And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing? 39 And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?’ 40 And the king will answer them, ‘Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.’” (From Matthew 25: 35-40)
The Confirmation Class, all of whom are entering the 7th grade in the fall, has begun their mission work! They are raising funds for blankets through Church World Service. These blankets are distributed throughout the world by Church World Service for disaster-stricken areas and the homeless. Each student will be trying to raise the MOST funds...and the one who succeeds gets to have their own success shared with Pastor Pam. If Eliza comes out on top, Pastor Pam has to bake her bread. If Samarra is the top fund raiser, Pastor Pam has to make her Rice Krispie Treats. And Mason...well...Mason has challenged Pastor Pam to cracking raw eggs on her head...in public!! So support these great mission-focused students by going to the "Giving Page" and selecting which student you would like to support. The blankets are $30.00 each and the mission campaign will run until August 15, 2020. Good luck, Confirmation Students!! To find out more about Church World Service, please visit www. wsglobal.org.
