Lent Resources 2020

We’re excited to share that ELCA World Hunger’s 40 Days of Giving will continue in 2020. Together, we’ll experience how the grace of Christ moves us to engage in transformative works of love around the world through ELCA World Hunger as God calls us into the ministry of hope, liberation and restoration. This year, ELCA World Hunger’s 40 Days of Giving will focus on hope. Even in challenging times, we believe in God, and we hope in the work God is doing in the world.

To help you plan ahead for Lent, we’ve just dropped in the mail a packet of resources exploring this theme. As it makes its way to your congregation, here’s a preview of what’s inside:

A devotional calendar with ideas for daily reflection and action, as well as prayers, relevant Bible passages, hymn suggestions and more.
A study guide full of impactful, motivational stories, as well as information about how your gifts to ELCA World Hunger are at work in the world.
Additional resources, including a new Action Guide for Congregations, inspirational stories of how your gifts to ELCA World Hunger are at work, and coin jar wrappers to invite children and families into the practice of giving.
checklist for congregational leaders to make it easier for you to plan your Lenten activities.
