Jackson Lake Ski Camp
Thank You from Susan Boteler
I want to say a big THANK YOU to First Presbyterian Church. These Jackson Lake ski adventures simply cannot happen without all the folks over the past 4 summers who have contributed time, effort, cooking skills and money. When I talk about Thornwell to my friends and I mention that all lunches and dinners are brought to us on the lake by church members, they are amazed. And I am too. My church family rocks. Every act of kindness plants a seed. Love you all.

Volunteers Needed for Family Promise
Sign Up Today!
Family Promise is a nation wide organization that was set up as a non-profit to help homeless families get back on their feet. Churches house and feed the families for a week at a time then they go to another church. This continues until the families save enough money and get enough financial and budgeting training to successfully get into a home.
