Weekly Update 7-16-2020
Hello our NHCC family,
I am so encouraged to be a part of our body of believers. I know that each and every one
of us have special talents and passions that God has given us to strengthen not only our Church
but others as well. As we are mid-way through the summer, it's not too early to be thinking about fall ministry and where you might plug in and begin serving. Discipleship has always included acts of service towards the lost and the church body!
Until then, there's come along an amazing opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus to the people of
Sanford, MI. They recently experienced failures in a couple of their dams that resulted in a flood and massive damage being done to homes in that area. Pastor Kevin Tippen of the Sanford Church of God, and Andrea Roberts father, has let us know they can really use some help on the July 24th - 26th weekend.
We currently have 7 men who are going as a team, but we'd like to have 5 more. (The Dirty Dozen!) We'll be doing insulation work, hanging drywall and paneling, and hopefully get some good "mud" on the seams! If you would be willing to help out please text or call Pastor Jerry.
Also, if anyone's willing to support this effort with the use of a travel camper, that would be fantastic... sleeping on the church floor or in a tent is not the best for some of us old men! Contact me at the number above, ASAP!
Other tasks that could use your attention would be painting some wall sections in the gym/community room, weeding out & trimming up the memorial garden, spraying weeds growing in the cracks of the parking lot, do some bush wacking where they're over growing, and trimming grass around the fence lines. Contact Cheryl Whitney about any of these tasks and she'll gladly point you in the right direction!
Pastor Jerry Lyon =)
