PIGS: The ELCA has provided us with pink Piggy Bank boxes. These coin boxes have been distributed to our Sunday school classes, and one in Rm 100 and another in Rm 200. These banks are to help collect funds. Just $30 can provide a piglet to a family in need. When this little piggy grows up, she will give birth to as many as 16 piglets each year. Pigs help fertilize fields, provide food to eat and can be sold at market for much-needed income. What a BIG difference a pig can make! Please consider making an offer.
