JULY 14 - JULY 20

ANNOUNCEMENTS

Pic of the Week

When a local church called and said they got an erroneous delivery of 80 gallons of milk (not sure how that happens?!) we sent our Milkmen to the rescue...  Over 90 gallons of milk were distributed this past Tuesday night by the Food Vault. 

📰HEADLINE NEWS

IT’S A TAKEOVER! It’s about time all 400+ of us have dinner together…Let’s takeover Culver's on July 18 as 10% of proceeds will go directly to FRC’s very own Food Vault Ministry! July 18th is this Thursday! There’s no better way to combine compassion and cheese curds, is there? #Giving #Helping  #IceCream #SplurgeOnTheCurds

HEADS UP.  Next Sunday, July 21, Pastor Bob will have a short FRC Family communications update immediately following the worship service. This will not be part of the broadcast … because maybe he’s poised to reveal some deep, dark family secrets. Ok, so maybe it’s simply an informational update which is just not going to get him on the New York Times Best Seller list…

🖥️FROM THE NEWS DESK

DRIVING IMPACT!  We know our readers love some good statistics (hold the collective sigh). At the food distribution this past week our Food Vault Ministry volunteers spoke and prayed with 30 families, totalling 112 individuals. Each family received $161.75 in food and personal care items AND, a water bottle compliments of our “closet cleaning adventures” 🧹🧽😃 For the mathematicians among us, that means we distributed over $4,852 in food items but FRC only paid $405 to help supplement the donations and the crazy efficient shopping of our coupon queens. And, this week’s distribution came to life with 16 FRC volunteers.

🆘SERVING OPPORTUNITIES

HAPPINESS IS … Reporting that we’ve landed lawn mowers and also two co-coordinators for the Operation Christmas Child project. Thanks to all who expressed interest and/or took on the roles! Now, we need a few August volunteers to enable the Solid Grounds Coffee (pre-service) ministry to maintain a summer schedule. Here’s an idea - how about some of the folks who really missed this ministry in summer celebrate it’s return by volunteering to help out! It’s just :15 minutes to set up and similar to clean-up. Email Tracy at vanessfam5@gmail.com to help out.

There’s volunteer spots left to fill the Kohler picnic fundraiser. We know it’s a busy summer but hoping to locate 19 individuals with a heart to serve and help the Uth team raise money for the missions trip to Nicaragua. Would you help us fill slots on Sat., July 27? Access the sign-up HERE or on frcoostburg.org.

🩳NEWS BRIEFS

☑️Our Christian Sympathy is extended to the following individuals & extended families:  Ellen Preder on the passing of her brother Glen Ten Haken, Sue & Bruce Nyenhuis on the passing of Sue’s sister, Nancy Kaye Meyer, and to Jill & Don Ludens who lost Jill’s mother, Elizabeth (Betty) Nyenhuis.

☑️Remember this news brief from last week? Today Pastor Toby is over at Bethany Reformed Church preaching up a storm. Should we vote on whether his sermon is :45 or :60 or :90 minutes? (They gave him :20 minutes)” He clocked in at ‘somewhere north of 30 minutes’. There’s hope…

☑️All Ministry Teams & Consistory have a combined meeting on Mon., July 15th at 6:30 PM in the Fellowship Hall. To clarify, this includes all participants on our ministry teams of: Connect, Grow, Worship, Reach, Serve & Organize!

☑️The large print Our Daily Bread for July, August and September is in the tract rack. If anyone can tell this Editor why the small print Our Daily Bread spans June, July and August, she’d appreciate your wisdom. Wouldn’t it make perfect sense for the small print book to match the large print book? Just hate to have the small print readers lagging a month behind…

☑️Samaritan’s Hand is July’s Mission of the Month. Great ministry with bible studies, support groups and counseling to assist those working to overcome addictions.  Month-to-date donations total: $149.97.

☑️LAST CALL📣…please swing by the Lost and Found Table in the narthex to claim your missing treasures. 

☑️Attendance last Sunday was 292. The Offering was $17,403 and the average weekly giving needed to meet budget is $19,135.

PRAYER CARE & UPDATES

Mary Ann Trgovec sincerely thanks the congregation for the prayers that were offered when she was recuperating from pneumonia.

Prayers for Rita Harmeling as her recuperation continues at Pine Haven Oostburg. She’s anticipating 6 more weeks of non-weight bearing on her broken leg. Pray for patience and for her to regain strength. Pray as Mary Rauwerdink recovers from surgery.  She’ll be inpatient for about a week with a total recovery time of 6-8 weeks. This week Bev Gabrielse will receive news regarding a treatment plan for her newly diagnosed cancer. Tracy Anderson has her cancer surgery scheduled for July 30. And pray that the cancer treatments for both Jean Kohls and Suzie Brusse are effective and have minimal side effects.

This week please focus prayers on the ministry of Kyle & Jayne Wenig with Athletes in Action on the campuses of UW Madison and Edgewood College. The Wenig’s prayer requests include: 1) pray for seeds that were planted through the opportunities Kyle had serving at Ultimate Training camp in Colorado in May and Jayne had in Central Asia in June, 2) pray for opportunities to host and connect with athletes who are training and taking classes over the summer. This is a special time of year to build relationships and trust and 3) Praise God with us for the ways He has been drawing athletes & coaches closer to Himself and softening hearts to the Good News!
