The Lord be with you
Lamb of God Lutheran has initiated a community drive to collect school supplies for Jesse Boyd Elementary school. School supplies can be anything elementary school children might need, pencils, paper, notebooks, Kleenex, glue sticks, and the like.
On Tuesday, August 5, members of Lamb of God and their friends will gather at church at 6:30 PM and receive their assigned areas. Then we will disperse, placing flyers at the neighborhood homes. God willing, people will acquire some school supplies to donate. Then, on Tuesday, August 12, our neighbors will leave the school supplies out for us to pick up. We will again meet at church at 6:30 PM and each person will retrace their steps, picking up the supplies that have been left out.
The gathered supplies will be delivered to Jesse Boyd on Wednesday for the school to distribute as needed.
There is still time to sign up as a neighborhood runner. If you want to contribute something but you are not in our neighborhood, just contact the church and we will see what we can work out.
Our denomination has had a three-fold emphasis for the last couple of years: Witness, Mercy and Life Together. This little project fits right in.
Blessings in Christ,
Pastor John Rickert
