Following the guidance of our Lord, numerous Christian Growth opportunities exist at Christ Lutheran Church. Please join us -- it's never too late!
March Update from Jackie Watkins and Candy Schoppa, Christian Growth Co-Directors
Our attendance has been holding fairly steady at 12 - 15 per week. Our Sunday School rotation program and opening is going well. A big thank you to Phillip Guengerich and Chris Weiss for helping with the opening. Also, thank you to Pam Kennedy who fills in when Chris is unable to attend.
Our mission for this month is Eco Palm: The North American Commission for Environmental Cooperation (NACEC) and the University of Minnesota Center for Integrated Natural Resources and Agricultural Management (CINRAM) worked together with the Rainforest Alliance TREES program and Smartwood to ensure that palms from the forests of Mexico and Guatemala were harvested sustainably.
Partnership with wholesaler Continental Floral Greens and distributor Greenwing have been enabling Eco-Palms to be distributed throughout the US for Palm Sunday. In addition, partnerships with faith-based organizations such as Lutheran World Relief, United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) and the Presbyterian Church of the US (PCUSA) have helped expand awareness of the Eco-Palms program.
Donations will be taken up throughout the month and sent on to the project after Palm Sunday. For further info, see the posters in the hall across from the Office and in the fellowship hall that our youth have made.
