Ash Wednesday - Celebrate the start of Lent - Heifer Project Offering
Wednesday, March 06, 2019, 07:30pm - 08:30pm

Imposition of ashes.

The donations received from your Ash Wednesday envelope will go toward the Heifer International to empower families to be able to provide food and allow Heifer International to assist during times of emergencies and provide education in sustainable farming. Please give to this organization. If you are unable to attend worship on March 6th we invite you to bring your donation to church on any Sunday and drop it in the offering plate.
Dan West was a farmer from the American Midwest and member of the Church of the Brethren who went to the front lines of the Spanish Civil War as an aid worker. His mission was to provide relief, but he soon discovered the meager single cup of milk rationed to the weary refugees once a day was not enough.
And then he had a thought: What if they had not a cup, but a cow?
That "teach a man to fish" philosophy is what drove West to found Heifer International. And now, nearly 70 years later, that philosophy still inspires our work to end world hunger and poverty throughout the world once and for all.
