**WE NEED TO RAISE $550 – PLEASE CONSIDER DONATING $1 OR EVEN A DISH**
Luke 14:12-14 NIV “Then Jesus said to his host, “When you give a luncheon or dinner, do not invite your friends, your brothers or sisters, your relatives, or your rich neighbors; if you do, they may invite you back and so you will be repaid. But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed. Although they cannot repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.”
We will be doing our FREE Community Easter Meal to help feed the homeless/less fortunate in our community on Sunday, March 22nd. This will be an Easter Dinner with all the fixings. We have been averaging about 300 people per month. Such a cool way to give back to our community and help those that are struggling right now. The event is scheduled at St. Lucas Lutheran Church at 745 Walbridge Avenue (Off of Broadway), Toledo, OH 43609 from 4 to 5:30. (Please note you will need to use the Frank Door Entrance). This is for the entire family so feel free to bring your children. We have a sign-up sheet for all items that we need below AND VOLUNTEERS. Please note volunteer spots are limited and unfortunately once they are filled, that is all we have available. We will also be giving out Easter Baskets/bags to each child. So we are in need of NEW toys, games, Barbies, Dolls, Stuffed Animals, books, etc. Please let me know if you can help with any of these as we are trying to get 40. PLEASE READ CAREFULLY THE NOTES BESIDE EACH ITEM YOU ARE SIGNING UP FOR SO YOU PROVIDE THE CORRECT QUANTITY NEEDED!! Also, we will be making up care packages if anyone can help with that:)
We need all the food to be brought in the full size aluminum pans. Please make sure they are completely full as that is what we are basing the portion sizes on.
You can also make monetary donations by visiting www.miraclechristmas.com and clicking on the “donate now” tab. If you want to sign up for multiple items, please feel free to do that. We need all items at the church NO LATER THAN 3:30 p.m. and please come in the Frank Street Entrance at the Big RED DOOR!! Please note we are unable to pick up food items, so please only sign up if you are able to drop them off at church:) All items also need to be fully cooked (except canned corn, green beans, and gravy). The link above will take you directly to the sign-up sheet. Also, if you would like to make a monetary donation visit the Miracle CHRISTmas website and click on the “donate” tab for a secure paypal donation. Thanks for helping us feed the least of these ~ MATTHEW 25:40 If you are willing to help the day of the event, please sign up also – that section is at the bottom of the sign-up sheet! We will need many to stay afterwards to help us clean up please. Thanks for continuing to be the hands and feet of Jesus!! This is such a cool outreach and I am really excited about this!! You guys are simply amazing!
Something for everyone to think about also as we prepare for this meal, What does kindness mean to each of you? I sometimes think we underestimate how powerful kindness can be to people who are hurting. It truly can change their lives FOREVER!
GOD IS GOOD. . ALL THE TIME!!
