Outreach

Here at Faith Lutheran, we believe that outreach is about building relationships with people. It is about building trust by looking for ways to serve others and expecting nothing in return. It is, quite simply, about being authentic and shining a magnifier on God’s continued grace in our own personal lives.

July/August Outreach Project

School Backpack Drive

During July, our focus returns to our annual backpack drive for MILA Elementary school.  The needs of the children have shifted this year and we will be providing some much needed clothing items, as well as school supplies, to include colored pencils, folders, and hygiene items (Kleenex and baby wipes). If you’d like to help with this project, please consider making a donation and marking it “Outreach Backpacks”.  The cost of a backpack is $30, but any amount will help. You can also provide support by bringing in gently used children’s clothing in sizes 5 through 14 and placing it in the collection box in the Narthex. In particular, the children are in need of shorts and pants with elastic or tie strings, sweatshirts/hoodies, & light jackets or windbreakers.

September Outreach Project

Thank You to First Responders

Our next project will be our annual First Responders gift card project and we will once again be reaching out to Fire Station #43, here on Merritt Island.  Our plan is to present the firefighters and EMTs with handwritten thank you notes and $25 gift cards to local area restaurants.  If you’d like to support this project, please mark your donation “Outreach First  Responders”.
