The Youth Group’s Cookout for a Cause on September 23 was a great success. Thanks to the hard work of our young people and the support of our congregation, $709 was raised for Bridge Communities. And everyone enjoyed the barbecue on the church lawn.
NOTE: The next First Church event to support Bridge Communities will be Sleep Out Saturday on November 3, 2018. The goal is to raise a total of $1500.
If you missed the Cookout, you can donate directly to Bridge Communities on the Elmhurst First United Methodist Church Youth Group page. Here’s the Link:
Lord, you have been our dwelling-place in all generations. Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever you had formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God. Psalm 90:1-2
Dinner for nearly 100 residents of Serenity House were served an outstanding home-cooked meal on Sunday evening, April 29, by volunteers representing 5 United Methodist congregations in the Salt Creek Cluster.
Many thanks to First Church volunteers: Sharyl Kung, Phyllis Loehman, Brad Mertz, Christine Mertz, Chris Squier, Janet Soltys and Pastor Joe Johnson for their gladsome participation. And to Greg & Ann Gills for their generous support.
