Untitled-5The Outreach Committee greatly appreciates the response to our annual fund drive to support the Food Pantry we are involved with in Waukegan. This week 125 families were served by the pantry. Last year the goal was to raise over $5000 in support of this important ministry. Thanks to your generosity we have surpassed this goal and may even go through the ceiling to reach $6000. It is amazing how many people can be fed on around $200 each week. Thank you!

If you are unable to store your things until the drop off day, please let us know & we will do our best to find space until the sale. Nancy McLinden has again agreed to be our sale coordinator. We are working on storage options. If you have a space you would be willing to let us use til the end of May, please let us know.

Please plan to help as much as possible during drop off day, the week of pricing, and on the sale days! AND when you visit a garage sale invite them to give us things that are left. Consider finding a buddy and committing to coordinate a room of our sale—sign up sheets are in the narthex so think of the area(s) you would like to focus on & recruit some friends to join you in a worthy short term project.

In the past 20 years that we have been recording the rummage sale figures we have earned $116,768 to help send many of our youth to camps, retreats, CHIC and on Mission Trips. . . . THANK YOU!

round table meeting-We enjoyed meeting with you! Over the last month, members of the search committee held open forums and met with parents, jr. high, and sr. high. We asked for your prefernaces, suggestions, and concerns regarding the new Associate Pastor to Youth. If you did not have a chance to meet with one or some of us and you have questions or concerns, please contact co-chairs John Christian or Niki Papak.
Currently, we are working to get the job description posted so that we can start recieving profiles of potential candidates. Once again, if you have any suggestions of potential candidates that you believe the committee should consider, please write down their name and contact information and hand it to a committee member.
As we move along in this process, we appreciate your prayers and encouragement. Please also be in prayer for our new Associate Pastor, whomever they may be!
