HEADLINE NEWS

AMAZING VBS WEEK! We’re giving thanks to God for His faithfulness!  With over 95 kids registering, it took 55 volunteers serving in many roles to share God’s Rock Solid Truth to the kids in our community, and that’s not even counting the behind the scenes prayer warriors! It also took 31 families donating items to feed the kids during daily snack time and for the family meal. CHURCH FAMILY: Thanks for rocking it and making faith adventures and opportunities for our kids incredible! 

⛳TEE OFF with Men's Ministries for Mini-Golf Madness! We’re all invited to a fantastic mini-golf outing at Sunset Hills Golf Course in Plymouth on Sunday, July 21! Putting starts at 4:00 PM, followed by a delicious, WI-staple dinner of burgers, brats, and beverages. This fun-filled family event is on the house, but we need your help to plan! Please sign up on the church website, by clicking HERE, or visit the Welcome Center for assistance. Everyone is welcome! Got questions? Reach out to Pastor Brian. See you on the green! Hey, maybe this event will finally qualify us to hire a Sports Editor…

FROM THE NEWS DESK

RAIN IN THE FORECAST? Time for a Shopping Spree! With school out for the year, kids are home more and miss out on free or reduced-cost meals. Help us bridge the gap by donating to the Food Vault!  We're seeking kid-friendly items like cereal, mac and cheese, and jelly. Drop off your contributions in the food barrel located in the coat room. Let's make sure no child goes hungry this summer!

A MISSIONS OPPORTUNITY FOR ALL. In 2025, our Uth are embarking on a mission trip to Nicaragua in partnership with Nicole Opgenorth. While only 30 individuals can join the trip, our entire congregation has the chance to support this incredible opportunity to partner with one of our missionaries. Similar to how our faith family stepped up to assist the Food Vault by volunteering at the Kohler picnic last year, we’re hoping you’ll consider partnering with the Uth this summer as they are utilizing the picnic as a fundraiser. Many of our Nicaragua-bound travelers have committed to serve and are rearranging their summer job schedules to make it work. However, we still need more hands on deck!  The dates are July 27 or 28th. If you can lend a hand and be part of this transformative mission, please visit frcoostburg.org or click HERE. Together, we can all be a part of this mission and potentially life-changing experience for our students!

Pray for patience and strength for Rita Harmeling as she is anticipating a bit longer stay for rehabilitation at Rocky Knoll than originally planned. Those recovering from hospitalizations and/or on our recuperation list include: Dean Mentink, Henry Teunissen, and Mary Ann Trgovec.

Please remember those on a cancer journey and continuing with various forms of treatment including Jean Kohls, Shannon Van Ess, Suzie Brusse and Terri Mentink. Pray for Mary Rauwerdink as she is awaiting the results of a recent scan.

Pray that Camp Manitoqua will be a faith-growing opportunity for our kids this week.

Also this week, we’re focusing prayers on the ministry of Kelsey Corpas as she works through World Team to plant churches in Spain. Her asks include: 1) Thank God for the 20 participants in our Prayer Conference this month. Pray that we would see God’s hand at work in the lives of Spaniards, 2) Please pray for our nine university-age interns and that they would grow in their faith and have a clear understanding of their role in missions moving forward, and 3) Pray for wisdom as I begin overseeing a couple that is serving with World Team in the Middle East. This role falls under my responsibility within the leadership team of World Team Europe.
