This Easter Season at Parkside we are going to take part in a Resurrection project, working together to see the ways that God uses us to bring new life. This year’s Resurrection Project will be putting together Personal Care Kits as a part of a project facilitated by Lutheran World Relief. Over the next 6 weeks please bring in any of the following items and leave them in the Narthex (there will be a display): --light-weight bath-size towel (maximum 52” X 27”), --bath-size bars (4 to 5 oz.) of soap, any brand, in original wrapping --adult-size toothbrush in its original packaging* --sturdy comb, remove packaging --metal nail clippers (attached file optional), remove packaging --2.65 (the cost to ship one of these care kits to Western Africa) On Pentecost Sunday, after church, we will assemble these kits and send them to Lutheran World Relief who will then send them to those in need around the world. For more information check the bulletin boards!
