We took this training at Highland Park several years ago and found it invaluable.
Fundraiser for the Youth Mission Trip
The Wall of Envelopes is back!
Once again we will be sending a group of youth and adults to serve on a mission trip this summer. As in years past, each participant will need to raise $250 for their registration fee alone. On Sunday mornings through the end of February there will be envelopes marked with dollar amounts hanging in the Narthex. We invite members and friends to choose an
envelope, place the designated dollar amount (or more) in the envelope and return it to one of the young people working at the display. This is a great way to participate in sharing the Good News of Christ even if you can’t personally build a wheelchair ramp or replace a roof with us!
