Lent Projects by the numbers: Our congregational time of reflection highlighted local and international needs. We were able to impact many people!

  • Wonderland Kids: 50 Fidget bags assembled and delivered to support child and family services.

  • YouthCare: 100 hygiene kits packed and delivered for homeless teens via the Orion Center.

  • Emergency Feeding: >>> items collected during the 40 Cans in 40 Days drive. 48 medium food bags packed and picked up. (HTLC historical total count- 21312 bags).

  • BINGO night brought in $900. $500 is  going to JoAnn A for Days for Girls supplies, $250 is going to the Emergency Feeding Program supplies budget and the balance was spent on our other projects- along with Thrivent Action Team funds.
