Sunday School Mission Project

The elementary Sunday School class is participating in the Read to Feed program for Heifer International. This program encourages reading, while heightening students’ awareness that their actions make a difference in the lives of others. The students’ goal is to read 300 hours in seven weeks, and they will be tracking their progress on a chart in the hallway outside the church office.

To support the Read to Feed program, the class is looking for sponsors from our congregation, and will collect pledges for up to 300 hours of reading. For example, if someone pledges five cents per hour, the total pledge would be $15.

The class will host coffee hour on Sunday, March 12th and will display what they have learned about the animals that Heifer gives to families in need. They will collect pledges made by sponsors and donations in any amount.

If you would like to sponsor the class, please see the bulletin insert on Sunday or contact Crista Bode, Sarah Rubel, or Sarah Huber.
