During the season of Lent and continuing through Easter, Mount Calvary’s Social Ministry Team used its “Giving Tree” to support the ELCA Good Gifts program.  ELCA Good Gifts are a creative, meaningful way to support the ministries of the ELCA throughout the world. Each of these programs is a long-term, partnership-based ministry that focus on the needs identified by local congregations and global companion churches and their communities.

Each week, a different theme was highlighted with opportunities to make gifts matching the costs of various projects within that theme. As of the end of the Easter weekend, $4,709 has been collected!

This includes:

  • 1 Cow
  • 4 Shares of a Cow
  • 5 Pigs
  • 6 Goats
  • 12 Bees
  • 16 Chicks
  • 1 Share of a Fish Farm
  • 14 Health Clinic Visits
  • 6 Vaccinations
  • 11 Stock a Health Clinic
  • 2 Mosquito Nets
  • 1 Hygiene Kit
  • 18 School Supplies
  • 8 Send a Girl to School
