Lent

Lent, the 40-day period before Easter, is a traditional time of fasting and prayer for Lutherans. Modern celebrations of Lent tend to involve giving up a food, hobby or vice for 40 days before Easter, rather than more traditional forms of fasting. It is also a time of discipline and of helping others. From organizing outreach activities to baking cookies. 

Our Lenten giving this season will go to support the Kibungo Lutheran Church in Rwanda.  Kibungo is one of about 17 sister-congregations that churches within the Sierra Pacific Synod are supporting in Rwanda. The Kibungo Parish was started in 2008 by Pr. William Gerard Mahirane. The current pastor, Evangeline, is the first female pastor ordained in Rwanda.  The congregation initially met in the home of a parishioner and purchased land and is constructing a small modern church that will accommodate about 100 people.  Pr. Mahirane was one of the original five pastors who came out of the Rwanda refugee camps in Tanzania in 1995 that started the Lutheran Church in Rwanda.  Kibungo is located about 100 km southwest of Kigali (the capital of Rwanda) along the main road to Tanzania. Of the monies collected,  10% goes to the Lutheran Church in Rwanda, 45% goes to the parish pastor for salary, and the remaining 45% to the parish.
