PINWHEELS are the national symbol for child abuse and neglect prevention. The pinwheel represents our hope that every child will be raised in a healthy, safe and nurturing environment. It is also a call to action, encouraging people everywhere to recognize that children are our future and that we all have a role to play in keeping them safe. All children deserve great childhoods.


Since 1983, when April was designated as Child Abuse Prevention Month, communities across the country have used this month-long observance to increase awareness of child abuse and its prevention. It is a time when individuals, schools, businesses, hospitals, religious organizations, and social service agencies join together to raise awareness of child abuse and neglect.


For a fourth year, Lutheran Church of the Resurrection (LCR) will be “planting” several pinwheels together to make a "garden".


The pinwheels are $1.50 apiece and can be purchased at the Lutheran Church of the Resurrection, Wed – Fr, 10am – 2pm,

and after our 9:30a Sunday services.

All proceeds will go to Prevent Child Abuse Illinois.


Help plant hope! Buy a pinwheel for our church "garden" and for your home too!


Bring “Pinwheels for Prevention” to our church and our community!
