Youth Mission Trip 2017!
We are so excited to announce that we are sending four of our youth and two adult chaperones to Sierra Service Project in Spokane July 16-22! SierraService Project works with Native American Reservations to help restore houses: painting, building decks or wheel chair ramps, repair roofs, laying linoleum and putting up dry wall. They also get an opportunity to grow in their Christian faith and learn more about Native American history and culture. Dylan Smith, Brett Anton, Madilyn Murphey and Jonathan Giese are fundraising to support their trip. We are so grateful for the amazing amount raised at the All Church Picnic back in September. It allowed us to reserve their spots. Cheryl Klein (Kim Murphey’s mom) won the bid on the quilt for $325. Thank you again for all who made bids! Again we are grateful to Sharon Meeds for the beautiful quilt.There will be other ways the youth will be fundraising! Thank you for being an amazing church that supports their youth!
Get Back to Your Roots
Many thanks to those who helped get our garden started last week. There will also be plenty of opportunities throughout the summer: Weeding will need to continue, the beans will need to be trellised, the Apollos II kept repaired; and of course, we will celebrate harvesting the beans near the end of summer. Finally, everything needs to be put away for next spring. Come join us and get back to your roots! Contact BoB Underwood if you would like to serve.
Fresh Produce Needed!
Our F.I.S.H. Food Bank needs fresh produce donations. If you are looking to support our most vulnerable brothers and sisters, please consider donating fresh produce for our F.I.S.H. Food Bank. Due to the time of year, we are low on
fresh produce until summer arrives. We are good on canned goods and other staples! Thank you so much for all your support! Questions, please see Tina Anton for more information.
We Care Ministry
The We Care Ministry represents the special intersection of “people who care with people who need care” in our congregation. From providing a meal for those just home from the hospital to rides to a critical appointment, from a friendly visit to someone who is home-bound to cards for those grieving for the loss of a loved one and prayers for personal and community concerns, We Care is one way God calls us to minister to one another. Want more information? Do you need “We Care” support yourself? Just check the appropriate box in the “We Care” section of the Connection Card and put it in the offering plate. Or email Carol Novotney firstname.lastname@example.org.
