Project 58
This week, your donations helped a WOLC family with an electric bill. Project 58 is a church-wide initiative based on Isaiah 58: "Is this not the fast that I have chosen....Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, and that you bring to your house the poor that are cast out..." We invite you to fast lunch on Fridays, bring the money you would have spent on lunch to church, and drop the funds in the Project 58 receptacle at church. Project 58 funds are use to help people in need throughout our community. By fasting Friday lunch, in a small but deliberate way, we resist the consumerism of the age. Every week, in the Opportunities to Serve section of the bulletin, you can read about where your Project 58 dollars were put to use.
