- Down to the Wire on Service Projects
- Two KickOff Sunday projects to serve others in our area:
Food Drive for the Great Valley Food Cupboard
Now through Kickoff Sunday, Sept. 7, St. Luke will collect paper goods and cleaning supplies for the The Great Valley Food Cupboard (GVFC) in Devon. The GVFC supports 65 local families each month who need help with food and basic supplies. There’s a box in the lobby outside Schlack Hall for:
liquid dish soap
We also need donations of fresh fruit - apples and oranges - on Kickoff Sunday. Bring them with you that day so we can supply some much needed and greatly appreciated fresh food to the Food Cupboard.
God’s Work, Our Hands on Kickoff Sunday
Once again the social ministry team is sponsoring “God’s Work, Our Hands” projects on Kick Off Sunday in September. We join the nearly 10,000 congregations of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America in an annual day of service to our communities. Our project is to assemble “Love Socks” bundles which will benefit the Welcome Church in Philadelphia.
To complete the bundles, we need by September 7 lots of donations of:
Packages of men’s white and grey crew socks (6 to a package)
Trial size items: toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, baby powder
Kellogg’s Nutri Grain (soft) fruit bars.
There will be a box marked to receive these items in the Narthex next to the Welcome Center.
The Welcome Church is a church without walls, worshipping with and serving people experiencing homelessness in Philadelphia.
