Welcome to the Imagine No Malaria Lenten Tool Kit. Below is a collection of resources that you can download to promote this Imagine No Malaria Lenten mission focus in your church this Lenten Season. This kit has everything you need to empower your congregation to give generously. We invite and encourage you to take advantage of these sermon starters, worship elements, children's sermons, graphics and more as you plan your Lent worship. Also included are PowerPoint templates for each week in Lent corresponding to the weekly themes.
Within this Lenten devotion guide are writings from some of our very own Mississippi Conference church leaders and stories of how Imagine No Malaria, an arm of The United Methodist Church, is saving lives around the globe. It is our hope that your heart will be touched as you read how God uses his people—how God can use YOU—to give life, abundant life, to his children everywhere. Below are different versions of the Imagine No Malaria Lenten Devotional. Download and/or view the format(s) that best meet the needs of your congregations.
During Lent we are called to pray, to sacrifice and to give. Imagine No Malaria helps us put our faith into action as we think about the blessings in our lives and give so that others may live, and live more abundantly! The Giving from Abundance Calendar invites us to think every day about our access to resources and services that support our health. Clean water, electricity, transportation, medicine …“necessary conditions for life” many of us take for granted. In reflecting upon our abundance, we are called to help create abundant life for others.
These proposed gift amounts may generate giving between $50 and $100 over the course of Lent for your household. You can add the money in a jar as you go or note the amounts each day and make one big donation at the end of Lent!
