Feed My Starving Children Meal Packing
This year God’s Work Our Hands (GWOH) celebrates a 10th anniversary. Over the years we at First Lutheran have done a whole variety of projects in accordance with this day of service on the Sunday of GWOH. This year brings some slight changes: as part of the 10th anniversary Social Ministry Committee determined a large group project would be a great idea. So on Saturday, September 9th at 9am we have reserved 75 spaces for our congregation to gather and pack meals at the Chanhassen Feed My Starving Children Site! This is a multigenerational Volunteer Opportunity and youth as young as 5 years old can volunteer with an adult. Packing meals at Feed My Starving Children is a very rewarding way to serve others. The meals you packed will feed kids, feed spirits and empower communities around the world. The First Lutheran Youth (FLY) packed meals in April, they packed 57,456 meals that feeds 157 kids for a year! Imagine how many meals a large group like ours will be able to pack! Please join us mark your calendars for Saturday, Sept. 9th our food packing session begins at 9am. We can make arrangements to car pool or caravan to the Chanhassen location. You can sign up to join us in three ways:
