Mini Projects

 

“…if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain,  ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.”  Matthew 17.20

 

Here are just some on-going, quick and easy outreach projects that you might like to get involved with from time to time.  Most require no money  – or maybe just a wee bit of time or money - but all  make a BIG impact in some way.

 

Recycle Ink Cartridges Here!  Bring in those old, spent ink cartridges (any size) and we will recycle them to receive $2 each in Staples Rewards. The credit is used to buy office supplies to support the congregation’s ongoing mission work. 

Save Those Pop Tops!  Save those pop tops from your cans of soup, soda, etc. Then, when you have a few built up, bring them in and deposit them in the jar in the fellowship hall.  Luther Memorial’s Sunday School children that go to Bear Road Elementary like to bring them in and dump them in the big box at the school.   A now retired 3rd grade teacher at the school started collecting them years ago for the Children’s Burn Unit at the Shriner’s Hospital in Boston.  It’s a win-win!  You still get your deposit back on your returnables and the pop-tops join millions of others to be recycled for cash.  The cash is then used to buy airline tickets for children to come to the hospital for care.

Red Cross Blood Drive - Twice a year, Luther Memorial hosts a blood drive in our fellowship hall. Watch the newsletter for dates and carve out an hour or two to save a life.

 Paperback Books – A member of the congregation collects gently used paperback books for our troops. You may bring books in and leave them in the fellowship hall for pick up. No magazines or hard cover books, please! Preferred are mystery, adventure and western themes that would appeal to men.
