DATE: JULY 9TH
TIME: 9:00 & 10:30 SERVICES
NEED: WHOLE CHURCH
During our 9:00am and 10:30am services on Sunday, July 9th we want everyone to take a moment and write an encouraging note to the teachers of Weller Elementary School! During the school year we partner with Weller to provide the kids with snacks, and support them in any ways that we can. We want to take some time before the next school year starts and encourage those who take on one of the hardest jobs out there: teaching! Take some time Sunday morning and fill out a short note of encouragement at the Go Local wall.
DATE: JULY 10TH-14TH
NEED: 6-18 PEOPLE EACH DAY
Join us as we put on Summer Fun Days for the kids at Chevy Chase July 10th - 14th! We will provide lunch, crafts, a lesson, games, reading, and activities for the kids each day from 11:00am - 2:00pm! Many of the parents and guardians of children at Chevy Chase work during the day. In the summer months that means several kids are home alone either because they are too old for childcare, or their guardians cannot afford it. Several churches in the area are putting on Summer Fun Days for Chevy Chase different weeks of the summer, and this is our week to love them well!
