Dear Congregation Partners,
It's already here: back to school time! Schools in our area are starting up this month. Families and kids are preparing for new routines, and educators are getting classrooms and curriculum ready.
Philippians 4:6-7 says, "Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Join us as we pray for students, families, school teachers and staff as they head back to school. We pray for peace as they enter into this new year, knowing that God is with them in all things.
We also encourage our congregations to be aware of the additional costs heading back to school can mean for families. Costs for new uniforms, shoes, school supplies, and etc. are very real for families with kids. A few of our partners and organizations throughout our community are holding special events to help support families with these needs. Here are a few you can share with your families:
Congregation Connections invoices will be sent out this week, we thank you for your patience as we move through a season of transition. Let us know if you have any questions.
As always, thank you for your partnership and the work you do in our community.
Grace and peace,
The Congregation Connections Team
