August’s Collection- HarvestCall Servant Fund
Special HarvestCall Disaster Fund Collection for August - The massive earthquake in southern Haiti devastated tens of thousands of homes, wrecked businesses, flattened churches, and battered Hospital Lumiere’s campus. Our desire is to assist the hurting, directly through our ministries in Haiti, and also by funding other organizations that specialize in disaster relief. Please prayerfully consider a financial donation as the Lord leads.

Moving Forward Update
The number or surveys turned in was amazing and was significantly higher than any Sunday School election. The level of sharing exceeded anything we have ever seen at church or our work situations. As we read through the responses, we were encouraged and feel like we have a better understanding of the heart of the church. There is a strong feeling of appreciation and love in our church family and a clear indication that our church family is very special to all.
We ask for your patience as we process all the information (approximately a 100 pages of thoughts and ideas). Developing a plan takes time and needs to be coordinated with many aspects of our church (e.g., Nursing Home Sunday services, youth choir, our surrounding A.C. churches, etc.) Our goal is to have a summary to present to the church around the end of September.

Note of Thanks - From the family of Tammy Kennell: We would like to thank you for the outpouring of love and support for Tammy during this difficult time. She received many cards, gifts, and flowers to celebrate her 40th birthday. As her cancer journey progressed, they continued to arrive, along with encouraging notes and assurances of prayer for her. We as a family were strengthened by these and are blessed to see the love of Christ radiate from your church.
