often evenings where our room usage is at capacity. There are nights this fall where

there is already no space available. Please contact Judy Graham well in advance of

your building needs at [email protected]. We request that even meetings of a

few people request a room. Priority for room usage goes to Gospel-centered ministries

Compassionate Care Project

When: Saturday, September 24


9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.

Sign-up located at the Outreach Booth in the Commons

What: Work together to assemble Personal Care Kits to be distributed

through Lutheran World Relief

Why: To give families throughout the world a helping hand, a sign of

comfort and hope for the future. When natural disaster strikes or politi-

cal conflict flares, families often have little chance to gather their be-

longings before fleeing the danger. They arrive in a refugee camp or

other place of safety scared, vulnerable and dirty from travel. The

simple items included in the Personal Care Kit allow them to wash

away the dirt and sweat, with the fresh scent of soap and the softness

of a towel as reminders of someone’s care and concern for them in

their plight.

Donations Needed:

• Bath towels

• Bath size bar soap

• Adult size toothbrushes

• Combs

• Metal nail clippers

All items should be new and in good condition. Donations may be

placed on the designated table in the Genesis Hall. The work of your

hearts and hands will be an immeasurable blessing to families in

need around the world!


You are the front lines of caring ministry in our

congregation. Throughout the week, as you

meet and greet those around you, think

Stephen Ministry. If you see people who are downcast or

struggling through difficult times, think Stephen Ministry.

Tell them about this compassionate care ministry where

they can receive the extra love and care they need to make

it through the challenge or crisis they are facing. Simply

refer them to Suzanne Biddix through the church office or

at [email protected].

Urgent Care & Repair Ministry

Current Needs:

There are several projects that we’ve been contacted about.

Please contact Suzanne Biddix for more information at

[email protected] or through the church office.

All material costs are covered.
