Help Needed with some yard work


The Property Committee is looking for individuals or small groups interested in taking care of some areas on the outside of the church. We do have some members that take care of a couple areas but we have other areas in need of some cleaning/updating such as the Prayer Garden, areas outside of the Fellowship Hall, weeds in the parking lots, etc. We will have a booth at the open house on the 29th or contact any Property Committee member if interested.

If so, join us in the church library for the Women’s LIFE Night Bible study beginning Wednesday, August 25th from 6:45 to 7:45 p.m.   We will be studying “Balancing Life’s Demands” by Chip Ingram.  This is a combination study guide and DVD Bible study.

BackPack Program

Our kids will soon be back to school!  School breakfasts and lunches help sustain those who are food insecure during the week but what about the weekends?   One answer to this dilemma is the BackPack Program sponsored by Food Bank for the Heartland who supplies over 8000 packs filled with healthy food for those children to take home on Friday afternoons.  If you’d like to make a donation to this worthy cause, you may do so online at https://donate.foodbankheartland.org or by mailing your contribution to:  Foodbank for the Heartland  Attn: BackPack Program, 10525 J Street, Omaha, NE 68127.
