On March 2, 19 ladies from Timothy Lutheran Church in Woodstock and King of Kings Lutheran Church in Jasper gathered in the North Georgia mountains for a retreat. As part of their time together, the women collected craft and snack items for a service project to benefit Lutheran Services of Georgia's new program, Extended Cultural Orientation (ECO). Part of Refugee Services, ECO teaches recently arrived refugees skills and imparts knowledge of important concepts to them, such as healthy parenting, computer literacy, and resume building.
The craft and snack items that the ladies brought to their retreat will help LSG create a children's area. While their parents learn about computers and resumes, the children will enjoy snacks and design crafts. Thank you, ladies of Timothy and King of Kings, for thinking of LSG during your retreat and for helping us launch our new program!
