During the season of Lent, many of us decide to make a special sacrifice to improve our physical or spiritual selves. For example, we may choose to give up buying coffee, sodas, and candy and use the money we didn’t spend to help others. A good way to do this is to participate in the Super Silver Savers fund drive as part of our Lenten experience.
Super Silver Saver cups will be available in both the narthex and the Family Life Center beginning on Ash Wednesday, February 14. Take the cup home and fill it each day with change or bills. When you put your money in your Super Silver Saver cup each day, say a prayer of thanksgiving for God’s many blessings. Bring your money-filled Super Silver Saver cup back to worship on Palm Sunday, March 24, and we’ll celebrate our offering of sacrifice.
If you prefer, you may give through the church’s online giving site and select Super Silver Savers from the drop-down fund list. You may also drop a check in the offering baskets, or mail a check to: Manchaca UMC, PO Box 460, Manchaca, TX 78652. Be sure to mark your checks with "Super Silver Savers" in the memo line.
The money will be used by the Missions Team to fund mission activities sponsored by our congregation such as:
Austin Habitat for Humanity
Backpack Ministry for students at Menchaca Elementary needing weekend food
Crop Hunger Walk for local and world hunger
Disaster Victims such as tornado or flood victims and the need for flood buckets
Students at Akins High School who are experiencing homelessness
Thank you for your generosity,
