Your Mite Box located in the rear of our Sanctuary collects your loose change to support many Missions, some close to home and others around the world. This month we would like to share with you: “Mercy House for Women and Children” - The Franklin Avenue Mission in Flint, MI, has purchased a residence next door to the mission and is using these grant funds to redesign, renovate, refurbish and furnish the residence. Named “Mercy House for Women and Children”, the facility will house six to eight homeless, pregnant, and/or abused women and their children. Located in one of the poorest cities in America, the home will attempt to break the cycle of poverty and decrease the potential for abuse, by housing women and children in a safe, caring, Christian environment, where the best practices of parenting and relationship building can be modeled and taught.
Look for the new Lutheran Women’s Quarterly on the table in narthex!
