June’s Collection - Operational Fund
Wednesday 6/24 - Virtual Bible School at 7:15
VBS Collection- It’s once again time for our annual clothes collection for Renault Sunday School in Haiti! We are collecting new or gently used clothing, size 2T- adult small, children and adult’s shoes, and backpacks. Please no winter coats. In addition to this year’s collection, we are also requesting jars of peanut butter to send to the children. The boxes for donations will be located at the four main entrances until the end of June. The Yordys are also willing to come pick up donations from your house. Contact Sis. Mandy Yordy with questions (309) 678-5484. Thanks for your love and support! This collection has been such blessing in the past, and we are looking forward to sharing God’s love again with these children.

Other Ways to Serve and Learn - Operation Backpack is an equalizing program where Woodford County children, rich or poor, start out the school year just like everyone else - with new school supplies! Last year we served over 215 children in need. Every year, there are many families that need assistance with the costly expenses of kids going back to school. We are expecting an increased need this year, due to everything with COVID-19. This year the sign up for Operation Backpack begins the first week of July, and we are asking that all school supply donations be delivered to Heartline and Heart House by July 27th. If you know of any children residing in Woodford County who need help with school supplies, please refer their parents to Heartline. We would love to reach out to and help as many children as possible!
