The Meijer Simply Give Campaign Double Match Day is Saturday, June 19th. On this date, Meijer will double match your donation. A $10 purchase on this day results in $30 of food cards for the Emergency Food Closet.
The Missions Team has reserved a Dragon Boat and is looking for participants to race this boat during the Belleville Lake Fest June 26 and 27, 2021. We are selling seats on the Dragon Boat for $65 to raise funds for our upcoming summer mission projects. We hope to do some work for Cass Community Social services this summer - opportunities are developing with 5 new tiny houses being built and also at the new building that Cass has purchased to turn into a family shelter. If you would like to donate to missions but are not interested in paddling in the dragon boat, you can sponsor a seat for someone else or just make a donation to this worthy cause. We need 15 paddlers to be able to race but the boat can take up to 21. We are hoping to sell the first 15 seats at the minimum (or more) donation of $65 but we will auction off the remaining 6 seats to anyone interested who makes a donation of any kind. Sign up early so we don't have to open this up beyond our church!
To participate you will need to have Saturday June 26 clear between 9am and 5pm as there will be a practice time and the exact time is not known yet. You will also need to have Sunday June 27 clear from 8am to 5pm as the races are during this time. We are guaranteed to be in at least 3 races - more if we find out we are good at this!!
Come Paddle or Cheer us on as we compete against other Belleville non- profits and businesses and raise money for missions. Racing and practices are in front of Horizon Park just across from our church.
Contact Micky Keelan or Dee Groeneweg to sign up or look for our table at church .
Recruiting Children's Moment volunteers for worship: Looking for any interested folks who would like to share a children's message for service on a monthly basis. Hoping to get an intergenerational perspective so this means children, youth, young adults, middle-aged adults, and seniors!!! EVERYONE!!! All it takes is the ability to record yourself doing a 5 minute or less message based on the scripture for the week which is always available on our website in advance, a few props, and a willing heart. Videos must be uploaded and shared by the Tuesday before the service they will be featured in. When we have in person worship if at all possible, also being in person to do the children's moment is helpful, whenever the children are in service. Contact Jill Sestok to volunteer!!! If you're not sure about how to go about any of this but are interested, we can work with that!!!
