Church News: Columbia UMC takes part in special Lenten exercises
By Vonnie Kolbenschlag
The congregation of the Columbia United Methodist Church participated in a far reaching Lenten program that culminated Sunday, April 23.
In keeping with traditions of Lent, the congregation was given empty lunch bags and daily devotional booklets at the beginning of Lent.
Money was put in the bags during the Lenten season and returned the Sunday after Easter.
The money goes toward hunger relief ministries in the United States. An ecumenical project, The Society of St. Andrew Ministries, coordinates over 40,000 volunteers to salvage good edible food from various sources. This is food that would normally go to waste.
Children at Columbia United collected the bags which they had decorated and distributed throughout the congregation.
