40 Days – 40 Items
March 6 – April 21, 2019
We have a challenge for you! Each day of Lent (beginning March 6), remove one item from your home and place it into a trash bag. These items could include things that you no longer wear or use. These could also be items that you love. As you place each item in the bag, offer a prayer of thankfulness.
One Easter Sunday, bring your bag to the church. We will take the bags to the Wilson County Help Center where they will be shared with those who need them.
Examples of items to donate: Gently used clothing (adult and children) Shoes and accessories Linens (sheets, towels, blankets) Kitchen items and more . . .
A Giving Prayer: Thank you, Lord, for the blessings in my life. You have provided me with more than I could ever have imagined. May the items I give this day be of use to another person. Amen.
