“This Lenten Season, please consider sponsoring a child to receive a special Lenten resources,” states Rev. Motoe Yamada Foor, pastor of Sacramento Japanese UMC and circuit leader of the Pentecost Circuit. Yamada Foor’s circuit currently sponsors the Children Worship with links offered conference wide. “The funds will also help cover continuing expenses for the Children’s Worship which we plan on continuing through the summer.”
The Lenten resources are offered to all children in the conference and beyond. Pastors and lay people can submit names and addresses of families who can benefit from the Lenten packets by registering HERE. Deadline for name submissions is February 10.
The anonymous sponsorships can be of any amount but the circuit is hoping to raise $20 per child up to 200 children conference wide. More than one child can be sponsored. Checks can be written to Sacramento First UMC, 2100 J Street, Sacramento, CA 95816 with a memo line stating “For Children’s Worship.” Online donations can be made at www.Sacjumc.com/give under General Fund, Children’s Worship Lent.
