Kindness4Katie Every Awestruck participant will be given $10 at the beginning of the project week. Each student will pray for discernment and wisdom as they use that $10 to intentionally bless 1 person, showing that person the love of Christ. $750 will be spent in memory of Katie Kloess, a Lutheran school teacher who went to heaven this past winter after a tragic automobile accident.
Free Car Wash: Rather than taking money, we will be taking prayer request as well as asking if the people have any side projects our youth could work on during year.
