Outreach Update 6-10-17

The Habitat Home is almost completed. Thanks so much to Marvin McKinley and his crew of church members for all the hard work. Thank you also to all who have donated to the missions fund for the $10,000 pledge to Habitat. We are still collecting money for this ministry.

Thanks to Steve Wilson and Gene Smith for picking up the Secret Meals food for the students at University Place Elementary School. These summer meals will be given to the students who may not have enough to eat this summer. This ministry is called Feed My Lambs.

Our summer “Neighborhood Time” will be on Wednesdays at 4 p.m. This is a time for the church to meet our neighbors. The college and youth activities will be held outside, as well. Our goal is to get to know our neighbors and have them get to know our church family. We will have lemonade, popsicles, pizza, music, games, water activities, and lots of conversations. Please let us know if you can help.

In July we will send cards to our home-bound members. We have 16 members we will send cards to for 26 days. Please help us by writing cards or notes to 16 people. We can give you an address label or we will address the card for you. Thank you.

Over Christmas we are going with Filter of Hope on a mission trip to the Dominican Republic. Our college students are leading this trip. We are in the process of deciding which week is best. Please let us know if you are interested in attending. More information can be found at www.filterofhope.org.

We are collecting nursery books and toys for our two year old class. Please donate age-appropriate items to the church office. Also we are looking for nursery workers for the summer. If you know of someone who can volunteer or someone looking for a job, please let the office know.
