Hearts for Jesus

For over 30 years, early childhood centers and K-12 schools in the Florida-Georgia District
have partnered in supporting a special project we call “Hearts for Jesus.”

Simply stated, the 60+ Lutheran school ministries in Florida and Georgia designate the chapel offerings for the month of February (or whatever month you choose) to support a ministry somewhere beyond our borders.

Helping Hands Eastern European Ministries is the 2023-2024 Hearts for Jesus project. Schools can participate by collecting money through offerings and creating prayer cards. For $16, a family receives a food package to make 6-7 meals. Helping Hands works directly with Lutheran pastors in Eastern Europe.

Helping Hands Eastern European Ministries is a Christian nonprofit organization created to care for the spiritual, physical, and emotional needs of vulnerable populations in Ukraine, Bulgaria, Romania, Moldovia, and Greece. As Lutherans, Helping Hands is dedicated to sharing God’s great grace and love through Jesus with Eastern Europe.
