BLANKET SUNDAY

BLANKET SUNDAY – MAY 1: Donate $5.00 to provide a warm blanket that can be used as a tent, a tote, shade, room divider, etc. through Church World Service (CWS) on the First Sunday in May and November. For over 60 years, CWS has worked in partnership with local communities to identify their needs and access the resources they need to build the foundation for a more viable future, including:

  • Blankets, tents, food and other emergency supplies in the wake of a disaster
  • Tools and seeds for refugees returning home to replant their fields
  • Wells for families living in drought prone areas to provide clean, safe water to drink and to irrigate crops and gardens
  • Literacy training and microcredit for women struggling to realize their potential. 

Our National Mission Partner, Church World Services, works with partners to eradicate hunger and poverty and to promote peace and justice around the world. Church World Service, PO Box 968, Elkhart, IN 46515http://www.cwsglobal.org.  

Men's Bible Camp

MEN’S BIBLE CAMP – Everyone, check your schedules.  Mark your calendars. The following dates are scheduled for 2016 at Larry’s Cedar Resort:  Wednesday, April 20th to Saturday, April 23rd (exit Sunday by 11:00 AM). Let me know as soon as possible if you are attending.  Right now only the kitchen side of the house is reserved.  We can sleep up to about 8 on that side if we bring some cots or inflatables.  If we get more than 8 then we’ll have to rent the other side.  Some folks last year could only come for part of the time.  Let me know if that’s the case again this year.  Thanks, Franc
