Pennies for Heifer

Penny Challenge Returns

Our annual Penny Challenge to support Heifer International returns this month and we sure hope that you have been saving your pennies over the past year!  The Sunday School is challenging the rest of the congregation so let’s have some fun while we do some good!

Here’s a reminder of how it works:  There will be two large jars in the back of the sanctuary, one for the Sunday School and one for “everyone else”.  Every penny in your team’s jar counts for a point.  Every silver coin and paper bill subtract points commensurate with their value.  So, put pennies in your own team’s jar and all your other change (and bills) in the opposing team’s jar.  Whoever has the most points at the end wins!

Of course, Heifer International, the Sunday School’s mission project is the big winner.  We have set a goal to raise $1,200 this year to purchase 10 goats.  We are focusing on learning about what is happening in northern Ghana and how Heifer is helping people there. Christiana Vanderpuije and her family will be helping us learn about their native country.

The challenge begins on February 17th and ends on March 3rd so get your pennies ready and let’s buy some goats!
