In that meal, Jesus announced that God had made a New Covenant in his blood. The Apostles understood that Jesus was the true Passover Lamb who died to redeem humankind. We will eat the following food: Meat, a symbol of the Passover sacrifice, eggs, Bitter herbs like horseradish and romaine lettuce, vegetables dipped in saltwater, unleavened bread, and wine. Registration will help us to determine how much food to buy. Please call the church office if you are interested or check the sign-up sheet in the narthex. The service will take place in the Fellowship Hall.
2022 Synod Assembly Service Project
Building Twin-Sized Bunk Beds for Children
This year’s Synod Assembly service project will be partnering with Sleep in Heavenly Peace, a non-profit committed to making sure no child has to sleep on the floor by building twin-sized bunk beds. Each bed costs approximately $250 to build, including building materials, tools, storage and delivery, and training volunteers. These are solidly built bunk beds meant to last for years.
Our Church Council graciously voted to raise $250 to fund building twin-sized bunk beds. ILC will send the donation to our synod. Please, send your donation to ILC and write in the memo “bunk beds.”
A bed isn’t really fit for sleep without bedding! We’re hoping to collect twin-sized sheets and comforters, as well as pillows, to make these beds comfy and cozy for the children who will receive them. Items will then be gathered for the assembly and given to SHP for beds across the synod.
