MISSION PROJECT – “Love Packages” — Love Packages ships 1,000 tons of new and used Christian literature overseas every year to people who are hungry for God’s word. We will be collecting bibles and other Christian literature during the month of March. All used Christian literature is welcome (except fiction). It can be written in and in any condition. Needed materials includes: Bibles, Christian magazines and devotionals, Bible study materials, used and leftover Sunday School materials, and non-fiction Christian books (adult and children). Share the love and bring your new and used materials to church so that the power of God’s word can touch the hearts of others. For more information and encouragement you can go to https:/lovepackages.org. Donations may be left in the church narthex. The collection period will be extended into April (or later if needed).

THRIVENT MEMBERS – Remember to designate your Choice dollars. The deadline is March 31st. If you need help you may contact Susan Piper or Becky Rippe.

POP TAB COLLECTION – We’re still collecting tabs from aluminum cans for the Ronald McDonald House. A container is available on the table in the hallway between the Council room and restroom.
