Bring Pudding cups for Bluejay Backpacks! Go! with Stewardship
Collecting Through May, 2020
Bluejay Backpacks is a Cambridge school district program that sends easy to prepare foods home with kids in need over long weekends.  These foods are easy to prepare because many of these families do not have adults home to help cook meals.There are approximately 75 kids in the program today.  This means that each month 75 sets of 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches/dinners, 2 snacks and 2 cups of fruit/pudding are sent home with each child. Several congregations in the area will be helping to supply this food. EKLC is taking on (non- perishable) PUDDING!  We need 75 pudding cups each month through May. Please consider donating pudding (nonperishable) or money so that we can support this initiative.  You can bring your pudding to church and leave it in the food pantry box.  Money can be tagged with ‘backpacks’ and put in the offering plate or sent to the church office.

Bible Camp Scholarships
It's that time of year to start thinking about summer plans for your youth! Don't forget that Bible camp is a great option! Click here for a Google form that is an application for the Bible Camp Scholarship applica-tion. The scholarships are $50 for a half week and $100 for a full week. The Christensen family desig-nated Pastor Stan and Mary Ellen's memorial mon-ey for this fund. It doesn't matter what camp, just that it's a Bible/religious camp. Last year, youth used the scholarship fund for camps at Lutherdale and Camp Lucerne.

CART is in need of financial assistance. If you are interested in supporting this organization and would like to make donations through the church, you are welcome to do that. Write on your donation that you’d like the money to go to CART. Or you can send money to CART; 223 Jefferson St; Cambridge, WI 53523. The website www.cartforhelp.org also has a donation button.
