Friends, I am so very grateful for each one of you- for your existence, for your generosity and for your love for this church that keeps us going even in the midst of our on-going financial challenges. I hope you feel the blessings coming back to you several fold because that is our God’s promise to you.
Let us continue to serve God through helping God’s people and donate new items for the families coming to Chicago as migrants. Donations can be dropped off at our Alderman’s office until October 1st. Baby products and hygiene products are an immediate list, and to see the full list of items being requested, please click here. The city is also looking for volunteers, so if you feel you will be able to donate some of your time, please click here. You can bring your donations to church this week. We will be happy to deliver them on your behalf or click here for a full list of drop off locations.
Oh, and I also want to thank all of you for the cards, calls, messages and gifts I have received from you on my birthday! Thank you for being you and for loving me through all my challenges and shortcomings.
