The CEC Outreach Committee has proposed a Lenten Challenge: As a Lenten discipline, place one of a list of suggested items in a bag each day. The items are suggestions that Sidewalk Saturday can use. You may download the list HERE. Bring the filled bags to church on Easter Week.
Sidewalk Saturday at CEC
Join us every Saturday for Sidewalk Saturday! Starting at 8 AM teams will gather in the CEC kitchen to prepare a hot breakfast for our guests. Our Food Pantry will distribute groceries, while other helpers will serve breakfast, pass out a variety of necessities, offer haircuts and clothing, and most importantly, talk to our neighbors.
Sidewalk Saturday is a great way to get out and serve our neighbors in need, build community with your fellow parishioners, and if you have kids, teach them the value of service.
Let us know if you can join us by contacting Justin Lindstrom at email@example.com or by signing up on the bulletin board outside his office.
