Dallas Church Members Assemble 125 School Supply Kits for Those in Need

By | Dallas, Lutheran Church, Outreach | No Comments

Dallas, Texas – Thanks to members who volunteered time and materials, First United Lutheran Church has assembled 125 school supply kits, which will be donated to those in need.

First United will donate the supplies as part of the larger Project Promise, a program of Lutheran World Relief.

The kits will be distributed throughout the world, to those affected by poverty, violence and natural disasters.

First United chose to participate in this project as part of the ELCA-wide, “God’s Work, Our Hands” Sunday.  This is one of many opportunities that First United takes to give back to the community.  The church also makes handcrafted quilts, often more than 100 per year, which are donated to those in need.

If you would like to learn more about Project Promise, please visit their website,

For more information about the ELCA and the day of service visit,

First United Lutheran Church holds services every Sunday at 10:30 am.  Visitors are welcome to attend.

In honor of Black History month, First United Lutheran Church will host
Bishop (emeritus) Mark Herbener on Sundays, February 21 and 28, from
9:15am until 10:15am. Bishop Herbener will share his reflections on the
central place played by Lutherans in the struggle for Civil Rights in
Dallas in the 1960s and 1970s.  During those years, Bishop Herbener served
as pastor of Mt. Olive Lutheran Church in the Fair Park area of Dallas,
centrally located for meetings and organizing during those years of
struggle.  All are invited!
