Did You Know…
Our Board of Missions collects cancelled stamps for the Stamps for the Wounded service activity of the Lions clubs. Founded in 1942, the program works with the country’s leading stamp societies to collect for and distribute to hospitalized service personnel the tools they need for organized therapy sessions. They welcome all donated cancelled postage stamps cut with ¼” margins. As you receive mail, it takes only a moment to cut out the stamp. A collection box is located on the Reader’s Table by the Great Room. Thank you!
Backpack Program Needs
The need doesn’t take a vacation.Over the summer months the Backpack Program still has a great demand.
A Prayer for Independence Day
Lord of the nations, you have blessed our land with the spirit of love and freedom. You have also blessed our ancestors with the will and strength to seek out and maintain that freedom, and we thank you for that. Keep that will and strength alive in us today, that we may continue simply because we have what we need, but help us always to remember that until all are well fed, until no one is homeless, until none live in fear, not one of us is absolutely free. Our prayer today is that you, O God, would keep us firmly on the path that works towards such true freedom for all. Continue to bless our nation and all nations. Hear our prayer through Christ our Lord. Amen.
