Good Shepherd has become a part of The Penny Project.
The Penny Project seeks to raise awareness of the extent of child poverty throughout the United States and Puerto Rico, and support for programs and ministries responding to the needs of children in poverty. Inspired by the example of the youth of First Baptist Church in New London, N.H.â€”who raised 60,000 pennies to represent the number of children living in poverty in their stateâ€”National Ministries is encouraging the youth of American Baptist Churches USA to raise 14 million pennies to represent the number of children living in poverty in the United States and Puerto Rico.
Rev. Lisa Harris of National Ministries describes the project from it’s beginning in New London to today in this podcast.
To join our efforts, bring your pennies to church on Sunday morning worship or at Wednesday’s Soup Salad & Soul!
