​​FLC's Focus on Lutheran World Relief School Kits (July to September):

sewing, collecting school supplies from LWR’s list and collecting funds for those who wish not to shop.

The display is up in the narthex with a list from LWR of what is needed. If you'd rather not shop, please call or email Lucy Kay.

We are in need of people to sew the bags. Cut bags and sewing instructions are located near the Caring Corner in the narthex on a small table.

Thank you to Sue Ebert for her many sewn bags, and to Donna Gilbery for her cutting skills! 

Thank you for your generosity and support! We appreciate your help.
