Calvary’s Social Ministries Committee has determined that for the year 2018, we can do the best in our world by giving our Noisy Offering collections to the ELCA Good Gifts Program. By supporting the program, we put our money towards Disaster Response, World Hunger, and the ELCA Fund for Leaders, to name a few. We’ll highlight a specific way this program works each month.
Collecting $269.23 at the April Noisy Offering, the Good Gifts Program will be able to purchase more than half a cow that will help an impoverished family earn a better income.
The ELCA Good Gifts program is introducing some new gift options! Let’s choose one for May! $20.00 will purchase Communion Supplies for an ELCA Missionary! ELCA missionaries serve in more than 40 countries around the world. Many of these pastors, doctors and teachers serve in rural communities – often traveling daily to serve and visit remote villages. This gift ensures that as pastors share the good news, they’re also able to share the sacrament of Holy Communion.
Bring your pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters and make a Joyful Noise! Hush money (bills) are also gratefully accepted. Know also that we are now able to text, or use Calvary’s Faithful Giving app to give to this project! To give via text, just text as little as $3.00 to (817) 760‐2980; just add the word Noisy to your amount. For example: $10 Noisy.
The Second Sunday of the month, May 13th, is our Noisy Offering! You’ll hear us coming!
