This month we will collect feminine hygiene products and diapers/wipes (all sizes) for area pantries which assist moms and women in need. Also! Feb. 14 (yes, Valentine’s Day, and also Ash Wednesday!) is the beginning of Lent, when we traditionally do our “Sweet Deal for CAR” project. Take a tube of mini-M&Ms, enjoy the sweet treat, and then fill the plastic tube with your donation of change (note of interest: it will hold $14 in quarters perfectly!) bills, or a check, and bring it back to the offering plate. We will continue this project, which supports our sister Lutheran church in the Central African Republic, until Easter.
