Announcement

Sunday School Update:  We have a few changes in children’s and youth Sunday School for the summer.  We will continue to have music in the sanctuary from 9:30-9:45 for anyone nursery—6th grade.  Those going into 3rd thru 6th grades have the option to go straight to class at 9:30, or to help out with music for the smaller ones.  At 9:45, class time will start for those who sing. Pre-K-2nd grade will be combined for the summer, with those going into 3rd grade joining Barb and Mac in the 3rd-5th grade class.  Jr and Sr High will be combined and will meet in the Jr High classroom.  We will be on this system through the summer.  After Labor Day, we will have a special promotion time in church and we will go back to our full complement of classes.  We feel that this will offer continued Christian Education for those attending, but with attendance normally down in the summer, this will at the same time give breaks to the teachers.

Eagle Lake camp runs this week at FBC!  We have set up a camp fund and are asking for donations. The money collected will be used to help reduce the cost of camp for all campers. We are offering the week-long camp for only $30/camper. Meeting this goal will require love gifts totaling $17,000. This number may seem daunting, but past financial support for camp from the church community has been incredible, demonstrating that the value people place on this ministry. Please consider a financial donation and help share Christ with area youth.

 

Wera Update:  The latest news for the feeding program for Wera is such that it is still not up to full capacity. The cost for the food is still high so the children are only getting fed a few times a week, depending on the price changes. If you would like to help with the feeding program, here is the information from HopeChest.

– Nutrition fund: This will go directly to your CarePoint fund and will help supplement the need for food. Please feel free to share this info with your sponsors.

– Instructions to donate: Go to www.HopeChest.org and click on “donate”, select “Designated/Sponsorship: One Time Gift” and type in UG26161201 in the Reference Number field.
