The Women of the ELCA are excited to announce a celebration of bold women on Sunday, 2/14/19. Bold Women’s Sunday will begin at 10:00 a.m. with a special service dedicated to the bold women in all of our lives, followed by a service-led fellowship hour that includes lunch.
We are conducting two service projects after worship. The first is a beaded bookmark craft for the children (and participating adults, too!), which will help remind us to live more boldly each time we use it as bookmark for the Bible or as prayer beads.
The second project has two parts, both benefiting The S.O.A.P. (Save Our Adolescents from Prostitution) Project, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping women and children involved in human sex trafficking. Our service project will consist of putting labels on bars of soap, which have an 800 number to an anti-trafficking hotline. The completed bars will be sent back to S.O.A.P. and distributed to hotels where a women or child in trouble may be reached.
We also will be accepting donations that will go towards sponsorship for survivors to attend retreats conducted by The S.O.A.P. Project. Our goal is to raise $200 to sponsor two people to attend; any additional funds will go toward additional retreat sponsorships.
