Thanks for giving to Lenten project

Dear Editor,
Our sincere thanks go out to everybody in the community who participated in the annual Lenten congregational fund raiser for Barton County Emergency Aid: The Widow’s Mite.
Through your generous contributions and efforts within your congregations, this year’s fund raiser has brought in over $5,500 and counting! As you know, Emergency Aid works to help residents of the Barton County communities who are experiencing financial crises, as well as providing assistance in passage for transient peoples through our community. Because of this fund raiser, hosted by the Barton County Association of Churches, and the soup supper held every fall, we are able to stretch your congregation’s regular contributions that much further to help those in need. Your united effort as people of faith, serving Jesus Christ in our midst through our less-fortunate sisters and brothers, truly stands as a glimpse of God’s eternal kingdom here on earth. In the words of St. Paul (Philemon 1:7), we “have had great joy and encouragement from your love, for the hearts of the saints have been refreshed through you.”
Pastor Adam Wutka,
Barton County Emergency Aid Council,
Great Bend
