>>>Note: Below is an opportunity for congregations in the Fox Valley to focus their praying, caring and sharing on a specific in-need community. This invitation from the President of Riverwoods is for an eye-opening experience on September 1st - Call Jay quickly to register or ask for more information.
We have had an amazing summer as God has allowed us to serve nearly 1,100 kids over the last eight weeks, more kids than ever before in a single summer! It is very exciting to see God continuing to extend our reach in all of our year-round programs.
Partner with us to minister in needy neighborhoods
I have an experience that I hope both of you will part of called "Who's my Neighbor?" On Tuesday, Sept 1st, at 3:00 pm, we will be gathering about 100 of our ministry partners here at Riverwoods for an hour of training and orientation and then we will be heading out in teams to seven of our housing communities. We will be meeting with individual parents in their apartments to register kids for our fall programs and to complete our community needs assessments. The goal is for our leadership ministry partners to have an opportunity to interact with some of our community families and to see our Advocacy Ministry "first hand."
I realize that this can be a challenging time to come out, but I guarantee it will be an experience that touches your heart. I am attaching detailed information. Please let me know if you if have any questions and if you are able to participate.
Again, thank you for your heart for local ministry and for partnering with us as we seek to touch hearts and lives in some very tough communities with the life transforming Gospel of Jesus Christ.
President & CEO, Riverwoods Christian Center
Warmly, Jay Curtis
