Lutheran Church of the Master

Today I had the privilege of joining the Lutheran Church of the Mater at the closing program for their VBS. They had 250 children that attended the week long Vacation Bible School. Their theme was “It all comes back to Jesus” and the staff challenged the children to bring can goods to help full the pantry at Open Door Mission. I believe that the pictures above show that these children stepped up to the plate and met the challenge. The Children collected over 600 canned good and came out to weigh 1133lbs. The middle school Pastor even brought students to the mission this week to help and they came back today just to sort all the cans they collected.
Are you organizing a Vacation Bible School or similar program this summer that could use a local mission’s project? Contact Maggie Cope at Open Door Mission to set up a food drive at 402-422-1111 ext 1554.
