This year, during the season of Lent, we seek to support international health and environment through financial contributions towards two good gifts:
Environmentally friendly cookstoves, $105 each and Filter to support clean drinking water, $30 each.
The Congregation Council has committed to funding five cookstoves and five water filters through Opportunity Funds and the Social Ministry Teams challenges the congregation to fund at least five cookstoves and 5 water filters. Whether we reach this goal or not, we are already committed to the 5 stoves and 5 water filters! Throughout the challenges period, we will keep track of gifts made to this project and give periodic reports. You are invited into this project by making a gift online or by check and designating it “ELCA Good Gifts”.
