Blessing Boxes are Here!

You may be asking, "What is a Blessing Box?". A Blessing Box is a "mini-food pantry". When the food pantry is not open, the Blessing Boxes may supplement some essentials.


The idea is simple: Take what you need. Leave what you can.


It means that those who leave items are blessed enough to be able to do so, and that those who need to take items, are blessed that the items are there to take. All items are non-perishable and are free for the taking. Thanks to all who made these Blessing Boxes a reality!


You can find them on the east side of Lecompton United Methodist Church as well as at Lecompton Elementary School.

To the clergy of the Great Plains Conference:

Bishop Ruben Saenz Jr. has prepared a statement (linked below) regarding the Protocol of Reconciliation & Grace Through Separation that was shared Jan. 3.

The bishop is planning a video regarding this topic using the linked document as his script, but he wanted our clergy to have his thoughts this morning.

The document also will be posted with his video on the conference website at some point this afternoon.
