This year for Lent we will be collecting monetary donations as well as food pantry items for Church Community Services (CCS) in Elkhart. CCS serves Elkhart county in a variety of ways by providing food and emergency financial assistance to those in need, and by offering a job and life skills training program for women. Church Community Services, with the help of individuals and churches like ours, can help families break the cycle of poverty.

Each week in Lent we will be asking for donations of specific items that are needed in the food pantry. We will also be collecting monetary donations to help CCS continue their ministry. Our goal is to contribute 300 food pantry items and $5000 to CCS over these next six weeks. Will you join us in helping our neighbors and reaching our goal?
