Salem Lutheran Sycamore Students Buy the Farm! 

Children at Salem Lutheran Church in Sycamore have been passing the bucket for several months now. The Noisy Offering buckets, that is. During the offering on select weekends, the children walk through the people gathered for worship with metal buckets to collect any loose change that they may have to offer.

On May 15, the announcement was made during worship that the children had collected enough money to “buy the farm.” Through the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA) Good Gifts Program, the farm, consisting of a cow, a couple of goats, a dozen chicks, two pigs, farming tools, seeds, and agricultural training will be sent to a family abroad to support long-term, sustainable solutions that help a family escape the cycle of hunger and poverty.

Salem Lutheran’s Noisy Offering collection projects focus on various causes that help teach the children of issues both locally and globally and how even pocket change can help make a difference in the world.
