January 2023 Monthly Ministry Partner ~ Churches United
Calvary’s monthly ministry partner for January is Churches United! All of us have both spiritual and physical needs, and Churches United is one place where God is working to provide especially for the physical needs of our neighbors. Located in the old Lincoln School on 4th Street in Nymore, Churches United is a place where people can go to receive material and financial assistance in the name of Jesus. Around twenty area churches work together through this ministry to provide gas and food vouchers, bus and laundry tokens, and other gifts for community members in need. We’re grateful for the work of this organization in our region, and we welcome the chance to support them. Remember: Our partnerships are about more than just money. The Bemidji community needs your voices, ideas, and support as we work together to consider the needs of our most vulnerable neighbors. Volunteers are very needed! To volunteer, contact Wanda at 218-444-1380.
You can give to our monthly ministry partners through RebelGive or by check. In order to help with record keeping, we ask that ALL checks be made out to Calvary Lutheran, with the name of the mission partner (example: “Churches United”) written in the memo line or by having the “Second Offering Monthly Partner” option selected on RebelGive.
Churches United also reports that they are in urgent need of sturdy gloves and mittens for adult men and women. Toothbrushes for both adults and children are also in demand, as are men’s razors. Donations can be dropped off in the baskets in the entryway at Calvary, or at the Churches United office (414 Lincoln Ave. SE.) between noon and 4pm on Mon, Tue, Thurs or Fri.
