Epworth Children’s Home Annual Work Day Offering Sunday, September 8, 2019
Sunday, September 8, 2019, St Luke’s participated in the annual Work Day offering for Epworth Children’s Home. This tradition goes back when Methodists were challenged to “Give a Day’s Pay” to the children at Epworth.
While the emphasis has shifted, St Luke’s came together to provide spiritual, educational, emotional and physical support for Epworth children. As you consider what God is calling you to give to support St Luke’s ministry to children, remember Christ’s command to let the little children come to him. He embraces, welcomes, loves, and teaches them. Epworth is answering this call.
Any time you feel moved to give, your generous contribution enables transformation to happen for children who call Epworth home. Epworth does not receive apportionments from the United Methodist Conference. Offering is an opportunity to support this vital ministry.
Contact us for information about how to give and be a partner in St Luke’s support of Epworth Children’s Home.
