Help Us Fill the Coop!

Support our Wesley students’ fundraiser, during Lent, to help buy chicks for the Urukundo Farm in Rwanda, Africa. $85 purchases 100 chicks.

Rwanda is one of the least developed countries in the world, ranking 163 out of 188 on the 2015 Human Development Index. Almost half the children under 5 years of age are malnourished.

The Urukundo Farm is making a huge impact by providing food for children at its Children’s Home, preschool feeding programs, school lunches at the Urukundo School, and staff and others in great need in the community. Chicks will provide eggs, protein, and money to run the farm.

We’ve created a “Coins for Lent” Calendar to help you save coins each day by reminding you of all that you have and others do not. Sunday Schools kids will receive small barns on February 26 in which to collect their coins. Red buckets will be available on Sundays at the back of the sanctuary for coin collection from the congregation.

Download the “Coins for Lent” Calendar and start saving your coins. It’s a way to count your blessings from God and help us fill the coop!
