Look for the Lighthouse! 2018 Synod-Wide World Hunger Mission to Send Kids to School
This year, Bethlehem is participating in the call to give underprivileged children the opportunity to go to school. UNESCO/UIS reports that 263 million children are not able to attend school. You can give children a brighter future! A donation of $50 pays for school fees, a uniform, and school supplies for one child. Each ELCA congregation is challenged to send at least 8 children to school with a gift of $400 – or more. BLC is challenging our congregation to raise $4,000 for this mission. Can we do it? Yes we can! Last year, BLC donated almost $7,000 to the World Hunger drive to benefit immigrants.
Donate in the lighthouses set up in both the narthex and in Fellowship Hall, or use the designated envelopes in the pews. Donations will be collected at the Synod Assembly June 3-5 and forwarded to ELCA World Hunger to send kids to school.
