growing in generosity

At Grace in March our focus was on HUNGER and God accomplished some amazing things as our people responded generously (how cool!):

  • 14 people participated in the 30 Hour Famine, breaking their fast at communion during a Saturday night service and collecting over $1700 for World Vision. During the famine, volunteers made 300 sandwiches that are being delivered to those in need through the 363 Days homeless ministry in Minneapolis.

  • Grace volunteers helped to pack over 100,000 meals at Feed My Starving Children during three shifts the last two weekends of the month.

  • $900 was collected from the ELCA World Hunger boxes, and the funds go directly to World Hunger Relief.

  • God’s Global Barnyard collections from Sunday school offerings this month helped to purchase 70 chicks, three ducks, a pig, a goat and a COW!

  • Over 2000 pounds (a TON) of groceries were donated and delivered to local food shelves.
