As Pastor Mary Beth said in her Ash Wednesday message, our faith calls us not only to love God, but also to love neighbor.
This Lent, as we reflect on who we are in Christ through worship and guided journaling opportunities, we also have the opportunity to accept the challenge to serve. Below is our Reflect & Serve calendar with various activities through the season of Lent.
We know how busy families are so here are some adaptions to consider if a daily calendar is just too overwhelming for you:
- Set out a jar. Each day of Lent, add $1 (or more). When Easter comes, donate to a charity or local helping agency, such as All Community Outreach.
- Set out a box. Each day of Lent add a can of soup, a box of macaroni and cheese, peanut butter, or tuna fish. When Easter comes, deliver it to All Community Outreach to feed our hungry neighbors.
- Pick out your TOP TEN challenges. Place them in a jar and before Easter Day, as you have time, pull them out, one at a time, and use them as a way to love God and love neighbor all throughout Lent!
