The GO Project shared some excellent reading options for all of us not just our youth. This was included in their latest email to supporters / parents / youth….
Five minutes for stewardship and a round of applause – Today’s message is brought to you by the letter “G” (for generosity) and the number “18,154”. That’s the revenue for May 1st to May 25th. Here are some other numbers for your information. Revenues for local expenses April 2020 – 10,721; April 2019 – 19,726; May 2019 (with garage sale) 27,546. January 1, 2020 to May 25, 2020 – 81,011. Thank you so much for your support of the church at this time of physical distancing. The rest of the stewardship story is brought to you by the letters “M” and “C”…making connections. Our Worship and Pastoral Care teams are phoning and delivering bulletins and newsletters. A number of people are taking part in virtual “coffee hours” – making connections. It’s different, it’s frustrating, it’s fun, it’s wearisome. IT’S BEING THE CHURCH!

|Virtual March Break Camp The Go Project has taken the tough decision to cancel their day-camp and sleepover camp for March Break. However, they realized that parents were going to struggle over the next three weeks in figuring out new activities for their restless children. So, the Go team created a ‘virtual day-camp’ which is at 11am each day for the next three weeks, with lots of interactivity and homework each day to make sure that they have off-screen engagement. Check it out!|
