As our fields and herds grow, so do the numbers of people in the local community who are benefiting. All of this is possible through your faithful support and “seed” money.
In the Community
We work with the Salvation Army in assisting persons in need with short term relief with their rent, utility bills and other needs.
They can always use good, clean, clothing and basic food items such as flour and sugar, ketchup, mustard, salad dressings, etc. They also need dish washing soap, laundry detergent, cleaning supplies and canvas bags.
Our congregation is excited about a new program we are embracing, called “Knowledge Flows.” We are opening our church to the local children and youth from the surrounding schools, to engage in an after-school tutoring program. Children and youth can come to the church for tutoring Monday’s and Wednesday’s from 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. A snack is provided to those who utilize the tutoring ministry. Presently we have about 20 children and youth attending. We could use a few more tutors.
If you are interested in tutoring children and youth in the common core areas (Mathematics, Language Arts, Social Studies, and Science) please contact:Karen Parssinen at (815) 520-1263 or call the office at 608-362-8866.
You do not need to commit to both days but if you are free and willing, your help would be appreciated!
