In Our Prayers
1) Thanks with Mike Olson for God’s presence with him in his cataract surgery. 2) For God’s presence with the following who are undergoing medical tests: Mellodie Henckel, Erica Shaffor, Savannah Lueras, Dee, Angela, and Mandy Dapson. 3) For Wilma Cox, who is scheduled for surgery to remove a squamous cell skin cancer on her forehead on January 31. 4) For God’s blessings in the ILS Open House this Saturday.
This weekend is the kickoff for our Play It Forward Capital Fund Drive for the Gym Renovation. The kickoff will include a short powerpoint presentation, distribution of a pledge card for the support of this effort, and appeals for prayers for the project and our ability to pay all costs by the end of June, 2014. May God bless our efforts to raise the $100,000 needed to renovate the gym and restore it to full usefulness so that we can continue to proclaim a changeless Christ to a changing world.
Do you work downtown or in the surrounding areas and have colleagues who might be interested in sending their child to ILS? The Board for Christian Education is seeking Parent Ambassadors to host a representative of ILS who will make a short presentation about the school during a lunchtime information session at their place of work. Sessions will be held for three or more colleagues who might be interested in having their child attend ILS. The Board will provide lunch for you and your colleagues during the session as well as school materials and take-aways for your guests. Parent Ambassadors will receive a $100 gift card as a token of thanks. If you are interested, please let Mr. Angell know at email@example.com or contact a member of the Board for Christian Education.
