Our sister congregation, Grace Lutheran Church opens its doors for respite relief. Every 2 to 3 weeks throughout the year we deliver travel size personal care samples and clothing items with a value of $5000. They are definitely in need of more clothing. In support of their Summer Respite program Tuesday @ 10 ladies joined the women of St. Andrews and served a meal for 175 in 2013, which is their average of meals served per day. LWLC Vacation Bible School also provided 2000 bottles of water for the Respite program. In 2014 we plan to bring back the opportunity to serve them with their pancake breakfast at least 2 times. In 2014 they will be celebrating their 100th Anniversary.
This program is especially in need of personal size (1oz – 3 oz) bottles of lotion and lotion with sun block. Please bring the lotion and place it in the box in the narthex. Travel-size (or hotel freebies) of shampoo, soap, deodorant, etc. are also needed. For more information, please contact Vern and Rita Reamer at 480-668-3472 or firstname.lastname@example.org
