Come learn about & celebrate God’s Good Creation at VBS this year! God's Good Creation is an ELCA World Hunger VBS program. Throughout VBS we will learn about hunger, hope and the work to which God calls us all in the world. Through games, worship, arts & crafts and snacks we will all learn how we can do God's work with our hands!

Help us with our Mission Project! - ELCA Good Gifts & PROP

This year we will be learning about how some people in our world are hungry & what we can do to help everyone who lives in God’s Good Creation! We will be working with two organizations to address hunger both locally and globally!

ELCA Good Gifts works with families in 80 countries around the world to help provide them with resources, often livestock, that can provide food for them to consume and sell to others. This year we will be working to raise $500 to purchase a cow for a family!

One dairy cow can produce a few gallons of milk each day. We know that milk “does a body good,” providing a calcium-packed source of nutrition for growing children. A family can start a small business selling extra milk, cheese, yogurt, butter and more.
With food, funds and fertilizer, the gift of a cow has got it all.

Bring in your loose change or bills to help us raise $500 to purchase a cow for a family through ELCA Good Gifts!

PROP is a longtime mission partner of PLC. PROP offers food programs that nourish the body, plus comprehensive social services and support to nourish the minds of Eden Prairie and Chanhassen residents.

This year we will be collecting three things for PROP. Boxes of macaroni and cheese, boxes of granola bars and boxes of cereal. All three of these boxes of food will help provide meals and snacks for students this summer who might rely on supplemented meals during the school year. Please make sure that they are individual boxes of cereal, not Costco or Sam's Club double boxes.
