star Embrace Grace Ministry Information Meeting
Want to get involved? Attend our informational meeting tonight at 6:30 pm in Room 106. For more information on Embrace Grace ministries, please visit their national website here.
star Begins September 5th
Embrace Grace provides emotional, practical, and spiritual support for single, young pregnant women who find themselves in an unintended pregnancy. The primary goal of Embrace Grace is to empower the church to be a safe and non-judging place for the girls to run to when they find out they are pregnant. This 12-week program teaches them about God's love and grace, and at the end of the class a baby shower will be given to honor them for choosing life and to help provide for their baby's needs.
The group will be meeting on Wednesdays beginning  September 5th from 6:30-8:00 pm  and we'll need your help! Would you prayerfully consider coming alongside us as we launch this ministry?

star Dillon's Card Fundraiser
If you're not already earning money through the Dillon's Community Rewards Program for your student's account, you should be!!! It's a simple 2-step process. Step 1 is for you to login to your Dillon's Shoppers Card Account online and designate HFN as the beneficiary of your Community Rewards. To do this, go to www.dillons.com, login with your username and password, click the "community" tab near the top, and select "Community Rewards". On the page that comes up, either use our "Organization Code" which is IF204, or simply type in "First Church of the Nazarene". A list of organizations should appear. Choose the one with the address of "4290 N. Monroe". After you've done this, all you have to do is visit this page at the end of each quarter and send Pastor Mark a copy/pic of how much you've earned. Earning money to help your student participate in Student Ministry events is that easy!
