Sunday was…cold. Yikes! Can you believe the weather we are having? I have to admit I don’t like a thing about it! Being cold is some form of torture for me that I would like to end.
On a warmer note, we had missionaries Chris and Heather Schneider come and speak at both campuses at once. They did a great job! Would you consider writing a monthly Be Present check to help our missionaries do their ministries all over the world? We love them so much and are grateful for their sacrifice.
Speaking of the world, did I mention how impressed I am that you all helped to reach our $2500 Charity Water goal last month? LOVE that our church does what they can for others.
Overall, the budget got blown out of the water last month. Thank you so much for giving! We have been right on the edge for most of the year, dangerously so at times, but November helped kicked us back in gear. We are very grateful and have a shot at ending the year in the black with margin for the future. Hot ticket items are ADA bathrooms at Hazel Dell, a youth ministry at Battle Ground, and more campuses all over Clark County…:) A girl can dream! When you give, we GO! Let’s change the world.
I was slowed down this weekend in my quest to change the world as my daughter was sick on Saturday, but she seemed to rally on Sunday. There is some nasty stuff going around to lots of families and I’d like to avoid it as much as possible! We are praying for those of you who have been hit with the flu.
The new building for Hazel Dell has closed and the countdown to moving is on. We never stop doing our best at ministry either, so it’s all hands on deck while we nail out some projects and get ready. You can help us this week at the following times:
- W-F from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm
- Wednesday from 5:30 to 8:30 pm
- Saturday – Times coming soon…you should go like our Facebook page HERE for up to the minute updates.
(We hit 500 likes on Facebook. I’m pretty excited about that! You know you want to be number 501…)
Also, if our regular times don’t work for you, but you are willing to come at an off time, we will gladly work with your schedule. Particularly if you have mad skills at renovation. We are close to being done with painting, but the list is long on what needs to be installed and done. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll hook you up!
We had our staff and board Christmas party on Sunday. Such an amazing group of people that I dearly cherish. We are BLESSED with a team that serves their guts out and does all of the hard stuff with very little in return. It was fun to be with them!
It’s fun to be with you, too. Thank you for being such a great church to lead and learn from. I hope you enjoy this holiday season!
Join us for Simply Christmas on December 17 at Hazel Dell and December 18 at Battle Ground – 7:00 pm.
