Disciple Women’s Project
March, 2017 - Kansas Food Bank
Have you ever had to decide between buying food or buying medicine? Let your children eat – and you didn’t? Have your stomach growl so loud everyone around could hear? Not on one day, but on many days because you were so hungry? Or fried bread for
“meat” when someone gave you bacon grease?
Many face these situations. You’ve lost your job, gotten sick and couldn’t work or pay the rent or house payment; or a spouse left you and your children and there was no income – and many, many more reasons. With the government situation now and in the future, many programs are being cut off or changed. Who knows what tomorrow will bring? Who knows? Someday this could be someone you know – maybe, even yourself. Let’s help Kansas Food Bank provide nutritious food for our neighbors here in our town through Labette Assistance. Let’s bless them with our monetary donations, because God has blessed us so abundantly.
Kansas Food Bank will provide if we provide. God is watching – waiting.
We invite the congregation to join us if they wish. Mark your envelope “DW Ks Food Bank”. We thank you, again. Read the bulletin here.
Lenten Devotional Prayer Books
Now Available - Jesus’ journey to the cross shows us the boldness of humility. From his ministry that taught us to view every person with love, hope, and value, to the criticisms of the imperial and societal powers that oppressed his people, to the sacrifice on Golgotha – every lesson from Christ teaches us humility and service to others.
Join Dr. Sharon E. Watkins and Rick Lowery on a Lenten journey that will remind you of the role God calls us to play in the world. Remember the sacrifices Christ made and consider where your own sacrifices may lead you. Look at Lent, Holy Week, the Crucifixion, and the Resurrection through the lens of loving others and serving our God together. Books are available on the table by the church office.
Join together at 8:30 am each day starting Ash Wednesday to read and study together. Gather in the church library. See you there.
