MAKE A DIFFERENCE in a Tangible Way

So many people want to help the people affected by Superstorm Sandy in a meaningful way – but are not sure what to do. Here is an opportunity to provide Mercy and Compassion and Help to an individual or family right now!
  1. Purchase a Christian greeting card.
  2. Pray for a family that has lost everything.
  3. Write them a message in the card – whatever God places on your heart!
  4. Include a gift card in the card (Visa, MasterCard, Walmart). If you so choose, include your email or phone number in the message for them to call and thank you or pray with you.
  5. Seal the gift card with the greeting card in an envelope.
  6. Place your return address on the envelope.
  7. On the back of the envelope – in the lower right hand corner, place the amount of the gift card.
  8. Mail the card to: Lutheran Church Charities – SANDY CARE CARDING; 333 W Lake Street; Addison, IL 60101.
  9. To receive a letter acknowledging your gift for tax purposes, please click here to fill out the form.
Lutheran Church Charities will then send a thank you and charitable receipt to the return address you place on the card. Lutheran Church Charities will deliver the cards unopened to Lutheran churches on the east coast for their members and staff to personally hand out to families and individuals who are in need.

This is a tangible way to show the Love of Jesus Christ to someone in need – and help them spiritually and physically! To those who already have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ – this shows them the support of the Body of Christ. To those who do not – it shows them the Mercy and Compassion of Jesus Christ through his church – the Body of Christ.

Reflections from God’s Word as You Create Care Cards

Thank you to all those who are responding to our call for Care Cards to be sent to families on the east coast. As you pray for those in need the following verses from Scripture can guide your thoughts and prayers. You might also consider including some of these verses as encouragement to be included in your note to the family that will receive your gift. We hope you’ll find these passages helpful as you reach out with the Mercy and Compassion of Christ through your cards and gifts.
