Imagine No Malaria-Lenten Devotion Day 17: March 1
Friday, March 1, 2013: ACTION DAY
Spread the word! Encourage your church to use Imagine No Malaria as a means of inviting the community to worship, whether for a service that includes an offering for Imagine No Malaria, or to Easter Sunday.
Download our easy ‘how-to’ for Pipe-Cleaner Cleaner Mosquitoes from the website at www.ImagineNoMalaria.org/Resources/activity-ideas. Work with the youth minister and Sunday school classes to make 2-3 mosquitoes for each person who comes to worship on Sunday.
Attach a small card to each mosquito with facts about malaria on one side, and an invitation to worship on the other. Make sure to include a map or address for the church so first-time visitors know where to go!
One week before your Imagine No Malaria Sunday (or before Easter), ask members to take 2-3 mosquitoes home to distribute to neighbors or friends. They can hand-deliver the mosquitoes, or leave them in the mailbox.
Not sure if you can get the whole church involved? Make a few pipe-cleaner mosquitoes anyway to hand out to friends, neighbors, or fellow church members to spread the word about Imagine No Malaria!
