Opportunities to work on our "serve":
God's Global Barnyard
Pigs, lambs, goats, chickens & honeybees are all part of God's Global Barnyard, which is part of ELCA's Good Gifts ministry. Each animal purchased gives a family in need help to become self-sufficient. Give a cash gift for Peace's "Barnyard Fund" - and we'll see how many animals we can buy!
Reverse Advent Calendar Project
Take an empty box (the Thrivent Action Team has one for you!) then beginning December 1 and ending on December 24, place one non-perishable food item in your box each day. As you count DOWN the days until
Christmas, you will fill UP your box. Bring your box to a Christmas Eve service, and the Thrivent Action Team will help you unload and will deliver all donations to West Valley Community Food Pantry at St. John's Lutheran Church in Phoenix. Together, we'll fill up the Pantry!
Apache Teddy Bear Tree
Show our neighborhood elementary school that we care! Each ornament on the tree represents one of 35 children at Apache Elementary School. If you take an ornament, you are asked to purchase a new gift (not to exceed $25), wrap it, tape the ornament to it, and bring it to PLC by Sunday, December 11.
Gifts at the Manger
When you attend A Night in Bethlehem, we ask folks to please bring a canned food item to place at the manger. This is another way your donations will benefit local food banks.
