Redeemer Lutheran Church Ministries
This school year, our Sunday School mission work will again support the Elmhurst Food Pantry! Every month we will have a special collection theme so we donate the items which are most needed. For JANUARY, the collection theme is dried goods -- pastas, noodles, crackers, cookies, etc. 🧡 Mandarin oranges are always requested. 🧡 Don’t forget that you can use the special bags we distributed in January to collect your items at home and bring them each Sunday! If your family didn’t get a bag, please see Mrs. Ford in the Sunday School office to get one. The children can bring their items or cash each week, which will be collected during the Sunday School opening in the church. Any food items are welcomed. Congregation members can make additional donations at any time by bringing goods to the Sunday School office or putting cash donations in an envelope marked “for Elmhurst Food Pantry” in the collection basket during the services. THANK YOU in advance for your support of this much needed charity!
“I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat. . . .” Matthew 25:35
The Sunday School says “thank you” to the congregation for your generous donations on the mitten tree! We collected 3 coats, 2 scarves, 6 hats, 11 pairs of gloves and some boot cuffs. The items will be donated to Lutheran Child and Family Services to keep the less fortunate warm this winter.
