Colorful Postcards: WE NEED POSTCARDS FOR GOD’S WORK, OUR HANDS!!   Imagine the life of a soldier where the routine can be monotonous, and life in the desert is very tan. . . the sand, the tents, the concrete, the uniforms, etc. To lift the spirits of the soldiers serving in the desert, an ELCA Chaplain requests that we send colorful postcards with a “Dear Soldier” note on the back. Postcards may come from vacations, art museums, local sites, or wherever you find some colorful postcards.

To help with this project:

  1. Bring colorful postcards to God’s Work. Our Hands. Or you may drop off the postcards at the church office in advance (put them in Pastor Karen’s mail slot).
  2. Spend some time on Sept. 8 adding uplifting messages and/or pictures on the postcards. An assortment of pens and colored pencils will be provided.
