A Lenten activitiy from St. John Evanglical Lutheran Church in Dickinson, ND:
CROSS-GENERATIONAL LENT ACTIVITY: Lent is a time of prayer, reflection and service. Throughout Lent, you can benefit the ELCA Malaria Campaign and improve the health, wellness and spiritual areas of your life. The ELCA Malaria Campaign educates about the disease of malaria and its impact on people in poverty in Africa, especially children under five and pregnant women. The ELCA is encouraging prayer, advocacy, education and fundraising.
You are invited to participate in this activity as a prayer partner, if you will not be doing the exercising. Information about the ELCA Malaria Campaign will be available. Also, you may share a gift toward the purchase of the nets by contributing a check to St. John, with “Malaria Campaign” on the memo line. One net costs $10. There will be information available in the Commons Area soon.
