Synod of the Great Lakes Church Planting Campaign. Over the last
10 years the new church plants have seen an average of 30% of the
new attendees to be new believers and another 25% to be those who
are recommitting their lives to Christ! This special offering will be
received this morning.

HEALTH CONCERNS –Sandy Workman was expected to return to her
home on Friday following knee replacement surgery. Ernie Otto
underwent outpatient surgery on Friday. See the Prayers & Praise
Line inserted in your bulletin today for all the other Prayer Requests
and Praise Reports.
IN APPRECIATION- I want to thank everyone who helped to make our
Fiesta VBS such a huge success! It takes a lot of people doing their
part to make something this big happen! We had a high day
enrollment of 147 children on Wednesday and a total enrollment of
184 children throughout the week! All those children’s lives were
touched because you took time to give! Words cannot express my
thanks to each of you, but my prayer is that you will be blessed in
return. The follow up to VBS is beginning…families will be visited
and special events for these children will be planned. Perhaps some
of you can help with these follow up activities…they will be posted in
the bulletin soon. Again, thank you! ~Shari Dood
Thank you also to all those who helped with the clean up following
VBS. It was appreciated!!
