As we approach Lent, so many of our neighbors around the world are longing to experience — to truly touch, hear, see, smell and taste — the hope that only Jesus can bring. Meanwhile, we know your congregation is restless and eager to be Christ’s hands and feet in a world reeling from hardship.
During this sacred time, will you join LWR in serving our poorest neighbors by providing real, tangible hope? Your congregation can help by gathering and assembling Personal Care Kits, either individually or in socially distanced groups, to fill our empty warehouse shelves.
We’ve also created a full suite of resources for congregational leaders called “Sensing Hope,” including a 5-week sermon series and individual or small group guides — all of which can be used digitally or in-person to nurture hope and action in your congregation during these 40 days.
Everything you need to get started can be found below. We hope your congregation will join us in spreading Christ’s love to usher in a new season: A SEASON OF HOPE.
Personal Care Kits can be assembled by individuals or families at home, or as a group activity at church – whatever fits your congregation’s needs best. Please note that local collection of kits will vary from state to state, and your closest opportunity may not take place until the fall. Be sure to click on the “Send your kits to LWR” link below first to guide you in determining how you’d like to set up your Personal Care Kit project this Lent.
Below, you'll find a 5-week sermon series and individual or small group study guides, including accompanying photos and a PowerPoint slide. All resources can be used digitally or in-person to nurture hope and action in your congregation during these 40 days.
