ST. PAUL YOUTH UPDATE FROM STACEY ALTIERE

Purse Project

Now – April 4

Ladies, the Masked Disciples need your old purses!  You know, the ones that are buried in the back of your closet but still in good condition?  Those purses!  The Masked Disciples will be filling your gently used purses (please no small clutches or oversized bags/totes) with toiletries and hygiene products for distribution at local shelters, outreach programs, and ministries for women.  Please place your donations on the table in the hallway marked “Purse Project”.

Noisy Change

Now – April 4

The children have already kicked off the “Noisy Change” collection for the ELCA World Hunger Project.  Glass mason jars and coffee tins have been placed in the hallway to collect your loose change to donate to underdeveloped countries to purchase livestock, medicine, etc.  This campaign will run during Lent, so please dump out those purses and look in the couch cushions to help those in need.

Lenten Offering Boxes

Now – April 4

The youth of all ages have also received their Lenten Offering Boxes to collect on their own to donate to our Helping Hands Ministry at St. Paul.  They have been instructed to look around the house and fill them up before Easter as their gift to the church.  Please take one from the table located in the narthex if your child did not receive one.
