Bags of Blessings campaign ... Blessings abound all around!
February was a month to deliver Valentines of caring to the community.
Groups collected 14 personal care items and packed them in gallon
bags and delivered them to Partners for Wichita on Feb. 23.
More than 40 congregations and groups collected over 1,200 Bags of
Blessings. The givers said they were blessed to be able to take part. The
Bags of Blessings were delivered to 31 social service agencies and
programs to give to neighbors in need. Both the program staff and the
families and individuals who received the bags were filled with joy to receive
these helpful, essential items, and said again and again, "We've been
Blessed!" Put Bags of blessings on your February Valentine service calendar.
