Toilet Paper COLLECTION for FNOW- Toilet Paper is
Once again needed at Family Network of Wyoming! During the
next month we will have boxes at the entrances to our church
where you can drop off toilet paper. Currently, a family is given 1
roll of toilet paper when they come to get food at the pantry once a
month. We would like to double that amount! If 50 families gave
24 rolls, we would have 1,200 rolls of toilet paper to give to the
pantry…..can YOU help make this become a reality? Thanks!
Y-LIFE – No meeting on March 4!
MOMENTUM - A Leadership Conference for volunteer leaders, staff,
and pastors is scheduled for March 3, 2012 from 9AM till 4 PM at
Fair Haven Ministries in Hudsonville. Cost is $35 for the entire day.
The keynote speaker is Dr George Hunter III, and his topic is ‘Church
Growth Reconceived for a New Generation’. Workshops in a variety
of areas will provide practical help in your local church. For details
and registration, go to www.churchmomentum.org If you really want
to attend, but are not able to come up with the finances, see Shari.
THE SPECIAL OFFERING for the month of February is designated
for WORDS OF HOPE. Beginning in July, Words of Hope
Devotional Booklets that we have available here at Grace will be free
of charge. At the present time we pay for those. “We are doing this
because we would rather have people support our ministry with
voluntary donations than buy something from us. We want to build
relationships, not business transactions. So we are eliminating the
subscription fee to bring our devotional in line with the rest of our
Bible study literature.” Our collection for Words of Hope was
scheduled before we received their notice, so even more reason to
give generously! This offering will be received on Feb. 26.
