Make Lent 40 Days of Awesome

We have a challenge for you!  For each day of Lent (beginning March 1st), remove one item from your house and put it into a trash bag.   These items could include things you no longer wear or they could also be items that you love, that would be a sacrifice to give up.  As you place the item in the bag each day take time to:

  • Thank Christ for all He gave up for you 
  • Pray for the person who might be blessed by your generosity

At the end of the forty days, bring your bag to Easter Sunday Service (April 16th) and we will bring the items to a local donation center. They’ll be shared with those who can really use them!  *If you have children, give them their own bag to donate their precious and unwanted items for those in need.

Acceptable Donations 

Gently Used Clothing
Books, Records, CDs
Shoes & Accessories (Must be in good condition. Handbags, Ties, Scarves, etc.)
Household items (Dishes, House-Wares, Knick-Knacks, etc., Must be clean and undamaged)

Unacceptable Donations

Small Automobile Parts
Paint or Chemicals of any kind
Frequently recalled items (Toys, Infant furniture, car seats, small items that can be swallowed)

Please Note: Canyon Springs is only able to accept bagged items. Larger items may be donated directly between you and a donation center.

**Pick up your bag at our Information Table this Sunday, February 26 after both services.
No, this is the kind of fasting I want: Free those who are wrongly imprisoned; lighten the burden of those who work for you. Let the oppressed go free, and remove the chains that bind people.  Share your food with the hungry, and give shelter to the homeless. Give clothes to those who need them, and do not hide from relatives who need your help.
Isaiah 58:6-7
