The Morningstar team invites you on a journey during the coming Lenten Season. Lent has become a time when we, as Christ-followers, are given the opportunity to consider that there is something that we can do during this 40 days prior to the Resurrection. When you sign up, you are engaging with daily devotional challenges written by individuals who support Morningstar’s mission. You can further engage in three distinct ways, pray, fast, give.
The season of Lent spans 40 days, the amount of time Jesus spent in the desert, fasting and preparing for his ministry. Today, as Christians, many of us choose to give up something during Lent, like dessert or alcohol, or perform an act of service like volunteering. We have two opportunities for you to fast on behalf of our children.
Whether you choose to give your time for the day of service or donate the $40 you set aside during Lent, your sacrifice will benefit the children served at Morningstar. We have a unique opportunity to raise funds to support our children’s needs. Our goal is to raise $40,000, and we are aware that in even naming that amount, we might be “limiting” God and what He has planned for this campaign. The generosity of God will convict each participant to give as they are led.
