For Lent we are asking each Sheridan household to commit to the 40 Days, 40 Items Lenten Ingathering.
You can choose to meet one of two suggested needs: Elders at Tabitha or individuals/families at Barnabas or do both! Here is how it works:
- Find a bag, box or tote. (Use 2 separate containers if doing both.)
- Each day of Lent find one useful item you no longer need that would be a blessing to someone else.
- As you put that item in the container, say a prayer for the next person who will have the item.
- At the end of Lent, bring your container with the items to the designated drop off place at Sheridan or take directly to Tabitha or Barnabas Community.
