Megan Daane Mission of the Month: I am so blessed to be the mission of the month for July. In August, I will be traveling to Uganda to help train local teachers and educate local children in a new nursery school.  I will also have the opportunity to serve at the main orphanage in the city of Buundo, helping to care for children’s physical, educational, and spiritual needs. If you feel called to support me on this mission, I would love your prayers. The mission of the month is also a great way to support me if you are able to do so financially.  A third option would be to donate school supplies.  Items needed are: glue bottles, construction paper, scissors, markers, crayons, tissue paper, water color paper, and paint. If this is something you are able to help with in any way, please let me know! I would love to talk more about my upcoming mission trip with anyone who is interested in learning more, so don’t hesitate to reach out.  My number is (920) 627-4718 and my email is daane.megan@uwlax.edu. Thank you for your prayers and support!! The Mission of the Month amount received to date for Megan is $639.00.

Community Worship Service in the Park: This year the Christian Reformed Church of Oostburg is hosting the service and it will be held next Sunday, July 22nd, at 6:00 PM at the Oostburg Village Park. The offering has been designated for the Pine Haven Christian Communities.  We look forward to worshiping together.

The congregation is invited to attend Samaritan’s Hand, Inc. Sober House (1406 North 11th Street, Sheboygan, WI) Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on Tuesday, July 24th, at Noon.  Come celebrate the Ribbon Cutting for our Sober House!  Drinks and munchies will be provided.

July Food Vault Needs: Spaghetti sauce, canned fruit, mac and cheese, and rice. Thanks to all those who donated or served in June. We served 93 people and 22 families.

The Paul VerVelde family would like to thank Pastor Taylor, Pastor Rook for the prayers and visits, and the Deacons for the gift of food and the gift card. We would also like to thank everyone for their prayers.  It is very inspiring how a church family can come together and be very helpful. Thank You!

There are no words to express the deep gratitude and love we have for all of our church family for all of your prayers, support and encouragement leading up to and through Kalli’s surgery and recovery.  We want to thank Pastor Bob, Pastor Brian, Lori and Toby for holding us up the whole day of Kalli’s surgery.  We want to thank Lori for organizing the prayer schedule for the day of Kalli’s surgery and all of those who signed up and others who prayed Kalli through every minute of her surgery.  We are so thankful and blessed that God brought us to FRC. We continue to praise God and thank Him for his faithfulness. We pray His blessings on all of you. ~ Ed & Jan Kane
