God’s Work Our Hands Sunday Service Project

Sunday, Sept. 9, 10:30am
Potluck at 12pm

Join us to put together teacher support kits for Whittier School. Many teachers use their own  resources to provide for the  students in their classrooms; we want to help! We need your helping hands to:

  • Bring items to add to the kits such as:
  • Kleenex, hand sanitizer, baby wipes
  • Dry erase markers, gel pens, erasers
  • Pocket folders (26 of a single color)
  • Heavy duty magnets
  • $10 gift certificates to Brainstorm, Target, Dollar Tree…
  • Giant-sized post-it notes, large chart paper,
    construction paper
  • Participate with kit assembly
  • Bring a lunch dish to share

10:30am worship attendees feel free to join in after worship, or just come for the potluck!

Thrivent Financial is contributing $250 in seed money towards this project. Thank you, Thrivent!


COOL Ministries

Our church supports COOL Ministries and collects food for their pantry on an ongoing basis.  If you have non-perishable food donations, please place them in the benches in the church entryway.


COOL Transitional Housing has a need for school clothing for the kids, particularly:

  • Boy shirts and pants – sizes 10/12 and 12/14
  • Boy shoes – size 4
  • Boy shirts and pants – sizes 5T and  6/7
  • Girl shirts and tops – size 7/9 Juniors

A gift card to Kohl’s, Target, Walmart, or Justice would help as well. If you can help, please contact Amanda Williams, Family Housing Manager, at awillliams@coolministries.org or 847-662-1340 x2. Thank you!!
