Warm Wishes is a group of fun people who want to keep their community warm! No skill is needed to participate- we all work together to make hats, gloves, and mittens for the cold in our community. Join us in Fellowship Hall for a fun way to serve our neighbors. Contact Nedral Dalton at email@example.com if you have any questions.
Join us in Fellowship Hall every Tuesday as we piece together and sew homemade quilts for Hospice Veterans. All skill levels are welcome- we will teach you what you need to know! This is a wonderful opportunity to get to know some incredibly talented, generous, patient, and fun people in our church while you offer a gift of comfort and peace to those who have served our country. Questions? Please reach out to Debbie McCoy at firstname.lastname@example.org
On Saturday, February 11 from 9 a.m. to Noon, Lesotho Nutrition Initiative (LNI) will be in Fellowship Hall providing an opportunity for David’s Church Family and Friends to pack several thousand meals which will be sent to Lesotho to combat childhood malnutrition.
LNI provides meals containing nutritional supplements to children in Lesotho who have been diagnosed as suffering from severe/chronic malnutrition and stunting, also known as wasting. The meals LNI provides are proven not only to halt malnutrition, but to also reverse the long-term effect.
All David’s Church needs to do is show up on Saturday, February 11 with a heart for service. LNI provides everything else and easy instructions for packing these vital meals.
Other ways David’s Family and Friends can help is make a contribution (check payable to David’s Church – Lesotho Nutrition Initiative on Memo Line OR online)
For every dollar contributed by the congregation, David’s Rummage Sale will match it up to $5,000. In past years, we have packed approximately 25,000 meals in one morning! Any amount is greatly appreciated knowing for as little as $5, 20 meals are provided. So to package 25,000 meals, it costs about $6,250! Pretty amazing what can be done if we all work together to feed the children of Lesotho!
David’s Mission Board hopes you’ll be generous in sharing your time on February 11 as well as making a monetary gift!
