Soup & Salad Luncheon for Missions

combo-soup-salad-breadNext Sunday, January 24, we are hosting a Soup & Salad Luncheon to raise funds for the two mission teams we as a congregation are sending out this May.  Our homemade soups will be vegetable beef, chicken noodle and cheesy potato – along with salads and desserts.  We will also have lunch items for kids.  There is no charge, but freewill donations will be accepted.

The first seating for lunch will be immediately following Sunday School for those of you who attend first service.  We will offer another seating after second service.

Getting Close!

After the most recent update from our awesome church secretary, the Porters are excited to say that they are getting close to their fund-raising goals!   If you haven’t been keeping up, they were able to purchase their plane tickets after the fund-raising dinner hosted on April 6.  That was a huge answer to prayer right there.  Since then, they have saved, earned through bracelet sales and received gifts bringing them just $1220 away from being fully funded for this mission trip.  Their remaining money is due to Polish Christian Ministries by May 15, which is just over two weeks away, so they still need some help.  If you’d like to be part of what God is doing in Poland, please visit their financial support page to see how you can help them close the gap!

Thank you to all who have already given funds, prayers and encouragement.
