January 2016 Outreach

Outreach Committee
January Newsletter
The Outreach Committee has identified helping our mountain homeless population as one of our primary goals for 2016.  On Sunday, January 24th, Bev Rios from Hearts and Lives will be our guest speaker at 11:30, just after the 10 am service.  Bev has been with Hearts and Lives since 2003.  Please help us to welcome her and join us as we learn more about the needs of our homeless and near homeless brothers and sisters. We are advertising this to the broader community.  We hope you will invite your friends and neighbors to hear Bev.
Our Fall Food Drive for Helping Hands wrapped up successfully with your help!
 We delivered numerous bags of groceries and $160 in cash to Dixie Willemse of Helping Hands.  This local organization serves residents of Green Valley Lake, Arrowbear Lake, and Running Springs who would not otherwise have Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner.  Last year the program provided Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners to over 150 families.  The work continued as Dixie and her crew of volunteers filled Christmas boxes and delivered toys.
Please join us as we reach out to our brothers and sisters in our own communities and in the rest of the world.
“Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”

2 Corinthians 9:7

Thank you and God Bless!
