Join us on February 24, 2019 for a celebration of our outreach.
Location: Pilgrim Lutheran Church
10420 SE 11th St.
Bellevue, WA 98004
(North Lot Entrance)
We will gather at 1:30pm to hear updates on our outreach ministry. Cake and refreshments will be served. If you have a favorite dessert to share, please do!
Also, we will reach out in service to the homeless by assembling “care packs.” The packs will include:
· Scarves, mittens (or gloves), socks, hand warmers, caps (warm hats), energy bars (granola, protein, snack packs), bottled water, Chapstick®, Kleenex®, & “A Simple Explanation of Christianity” (supplied by LMSN).
The “care packs” are tried and tested outreach items. Don Sundene reports, “I gave a care pack to a homeless person the other day. She received it with tears in her eyes and said ‘Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!’”
We hope that we can assemble 100+ care packs. We will have some material pre-purchased, but we also hope that you can help by bringing the items noted above which can be purchased through Good Will, Costco, or the discount store of your choice.
Once the kits are assembled, keep one or more in your car with you. When you meet someone at the corner with a cardboard sign, you can give them a care pack to let them know of Jesus’ love.
