Upcoming Opportunities:
Next Food Distribution:  This Friday, 18 June! Meet at Wayside at 8:30! Details below.  We will have fresh produce and goods and need your help to make this possible.  Please contact me to let me know if you can help this week.  Last one till later this summer!  This effort is not possible without a lot of volunteers!  

Summer Festival:  Mark Saturday, 10 July 2021 on your calendar as we celebrate the heat and heart of summer with games, stories, crafts, face painting, snacks and more!  Wurzbach Manor Apartments from 9:00am – 1:00pm  The main event will be from 10:00 – 12:30 with set-up, instructions, prayer prior and clean-up after.

Mini-VBS (CEF 5 day Club): 12-16 July 5 Days of summer ministry to the kids in the Med-Center area.  Each club will be 60-90 minutes long with Bible lessons, music, missionary stories, activities, snack and a message of hope each day!  We would love to see teens involved leading these events.  Contact Matt to find out more!  6:00-7:30pm daily.  We have the opportunity to share hope to so many kids in the area in a fun-filled, energetic way!

ESL/Phonics classes on Thursdays are taking a slight twist: a couple of weeks ago we had the opportunity to meet and work with several teenage girls in the complex.  This may be a new way to speak into the lives of the youth and offer insight to character development, joyful disposition, and respect for one another.  If you might be interested in working with youth, let me know!  We’re still trying to figure out what this might look like …  join us in the development of a God-breathed idea!

We need several more volunteers to lead zoom ESL classes as we have several women wanting to learn English!  These are one on one opportunities to teach various levels of English with a foreign-born resident.  Contact Patty Dyer at for more info!  These 1 hour classes can be scheduled based upon your available free time.  If you are gifted and willing, contact us!
