Mark your calendars! 5-Day Clubs return to Grace Church the weeks of July 24-28 and July 31-August 4. Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF) from Omaha has specially-trained youth from St. Paul (Alex Bear, Natalie Hall), as well as three additional youth from Omaha, to lead four Bible clubs at four different locations in a two week period. What a great mission outreach opportunity for our community! We challenge everyone to find a way to be involved. We have placed a “Donation Tree” in the north lobby with leaves that have names of food items printed on them. If you could donate any of these items, please take a leaf. There are two leaves attached to one another—the first leaf is for you to take to remind you what you volunteered to purchase, the second leaf is for you to write your name on and drop in the basket by the tree (you will find pens in the basket). There is also a donation jar in the basket if you would prefer to donate money instead of purchasing the food. Thank you!
Contact Rachel Bear (308.383.0210) or Lura Townsend (402.510.1872) if you have any questions or would like more information about helping with any aspect of this outreach ministry to the children of our community.
