“SUMMER IN THE CITY”
These words from Amos frame our call for a very special ministry opportunity that
is coming up this summer. It is called “Summer in the City.” People of Good Hope –
teens and adults – have the opportunity to volunteer at Redeemer Lutheran Church in
Toledo, Ohio. The dates are July 13 – 16, 2017. You can volunteer one day, two days,
three days or all four!
The schedule for the four days will look like this:
July 13 – 8am – 2:30pm Food Bank (an awesome food bank that serves Toledo)
July 14 – Sumer School classes for children (opportunities to teach, help, work with
children of many ages)
July 15 – Work projects in the neighborhood (cleaning, painting, etc.) and a Fun Day
July 16 – Worshipping with the Redeemer Congregation
This schedule offers a variety of ministry opportunities for people (teens and
adults) to get a feel for urban ministry at its finest. I hope that many of our Good Hope
family will take advantage of this great opportunity. David Wolfe and I will be going to
Toledo and we hope that many of you will be joining us!
There is a clip board on the Ministry Bulletin Board for people to volunteer.
Please indicate which day or days you would like to go to Toledo. The cost is $30.00 per
person. We will meet ahead of the trip to finalize planning.
I hope that many folks will echo Scripture and say:
“Here am I, send me!”
