A Brief History: Beginning in 2005, the Tuesday Morning Bible Study group at ALC sewed school bags, purchased school supplies and assembled between 25-60 school kits for Lutheran World Relief each year.
In 2016, the Global Ministries Team took on leadership of the LWR Kits project at ALC. Since that time, hundreds of school kits, personal care kits, and baby care kits have been assembled by enthusiastic helpers—Ascension Lutheran School children, Sunday School children, Confirmation classes, Senior Luther League, congregation members and Life Group members.
Since 2016, kits we have made at ALC have been delivered to people in Djibouti, Angola, Peru, Honduras, Rwanda, Lebanon, and Georgia, in Eastern Europe.
In 2021, over 1000 school kits and 20 personal care kits were shipped to LWR. Ascension’s talented craftspeople are also active in creating quilts for LWR. CLICK to learn more.
