School Supply Drive

We are collecting school supplies again this year to benefit the students at Rice Elementary. Look for the big red containers in the Foyer and in front of the office. Pick up a list of items needed at the STAND@Home Center. This is an opportunity to show our neighborhood how much we care about families and children, and it’s a great way for families to work on a service project together. Cash donations will be accepted. Donations are due Sunday, August 11.

Student Ministry Intern

We are excited to have Ciara Garcia as our RISE Student Ministry summer intern. Ciara is a long way from home, without friends or family for support. If you would be willing to have Ciara out for dinner with your family—either in your home or at a restaurant—I know she would be very grateful for the opportunity. Take a look at available dates here and sign up to host Ciara.
