OPPORTUNITIES FOR MAY
This month, we have several ways to participate in missions from home or in person.
BABY BOTTLE CHALLENGE
The Pregnancy Care Center empowers individuals to make life affirming decisions through education, counseling and compassionate care based on the ministry of Jesus Christ. They are able to reach hundreds of precious souls each year with truths that empower, inspire, and bring hope. You can help support their work by participating in the Baby Bottle Challenge May 9 (Mother's Day) throug June 20 (Father's Day). You can pick up an empty baby bottle in the connect foyer beginning May 9. Fill it with loose change and return it to the foyer on June 20. All funds collected will help the center continue their work with those in our community facing pregnancy decisions.
Join us for a hiking group on May 1 and 8 from 10:00 am to noon at the Greenway trailhead by Kohl's. All levels of experience are welcome. You can hike as long or as little as you like. This is the perfect opportunity to connect with others from Hermitage Hills as well as with others in your area of influence. Optional lunch at First Watch after.
GROW U AUCTION NIGHT
Join Grow U, the weekday preschool at Hermitage Hills, as they connect with their families, the church, and the community through their Auction Night. This is an awesome way to help Grow U as they minister to the community. Join us Thursday, May 20, from 5:00 to 7:00 in the Loft for a night of live music, vendors, door prizes, food, silent auction and more! All proceeds from the auction will go to support the ministry of Grow U and will help them to continue to love our community well.
We are still serving our community through Radical Heart each week on Wednesday nights from 6:00 - 7:30 pm and Thursday mornings from 10:00 - 11:30 pm. We can use your help.
We are serving as many as 50 families per week and need volunteers to help us host them well. You can help prepare food boxes in the pantry, load boxes into guests' cars, and pray with guests. We are following health guidelines for the safety of our volunteers and guests. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Lori at email@example.com.
We are accepting clothing donations. You can bring donations to the church office Monday through Friday between 9:00 am and 3:00 pm and leave in the entry for pick up by Radical Heart volunteers. For donation guidelines, click HERE.
We are also accepting food donations of non-perishable food items (pickles, cereal, peanut butter, crackers). You can bring donations to the church office Monday through Friday between 9:00 am and 3:00 pm and leave in the entry for pick up by Radical Heart volunteers.
Month of Missions is not just a day, week, or month. It is a year long commitment to being on mission locally and globally. You can stay connected through the mission's newsletter. View the May newsletter HERE.
