World Malaria Sunday: April 27
Every year, millions of people around the globe observe World Malaria Day on
April 25, The ELCA Malaria Campaign is turning this day into a special week,
and doing our part by observing World Malaria Sunday on April 27. This is an
opportunity for all of us to come together and do something big. With nearly
10,000 congregations and over 3.9 million baptized members, we are a church
that rolls up its sleeves and gets to work. The goal is to raise $250,000 in
one week, which is enough to kick-start malaria programming in Namibia. We
can do more together than we ever could alone. Already, we have joined hands
with our brothers and sisters in 12 African countries, and have seen great
progress. Together, let’s help make it 13.

Daily Bible Readings for 2014
These are fast times we’re living in. As life moves quicker and quicker, we
can become overwhelmed and exhausted. It’s no surprise that when it comes to
our relationships, we find ourselves with little or no time to put into
them. Here is a different way to read through the Bible in a
year. May you be blessed as God speaks to you through the words that are God
inspired. Click here to
