Living Lent 2021

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.

Pray

The Morningstar team serves up to 57 children in residential care and hundreds more through our community counseling program. During this season of Lent, you can cover our children with prayer. Pray for their physical and emotional health, their educational attainment, and their individual permanency plans. Pray for our team and board to serve our children well. Pray for provision to meet our children’s needs. We covet your prayers both during Lent and year-round.

Fast

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.

  1. Day of Service On March 20, 2021, we will have a campus day of service to complete critical outdoor projects. You may volunteer individually or as a group. We will have morning and afternoon opportunities. To volunteer or learn more, contact Laura Kitchens at (912) 267-3700 Ext. 2109 or email lkitchens@morningstarcfs.org.
  2. Set aside $1 per day that would have been spent on luxury as a sacrifice for each of the 40 days of Lent. Consider giving this as a donation to support our children’s needs at the end of Lent.

Give

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.
