Media and Music Workshop
Saturday, August 26 | Calling all tech team and worship band, and all people who have thought, "I'd be cool if I was on tech team or on stage in the worship band." We are having a training day on August 26 in the morning. We invited some outside experts to evaluate what we are doing and help us come up with ways to improve, or just congratulate us on our excellence. We will be dividing up into small teams to work on the different aspects. It will, hopefully, be educational.
Crisis Care Kits
Crisis care kits are sent out by the Nazarene Church all over the world when disaster strikes. The kit is made up of personal care items and is designed to get you thru the first couple hard days after disaster strikes. Kits are assembled by individual churches and sent to warehouses where they wait till they are needed. Last year, the warehouse that we ship to made 15 shipments, which was $1.8 million dollars in fair market value. Recently the kits have gone to Cuba, Ukraine, and Turkey. We continuely collect for these kits, but are in special need of a few items at this time. We are looking for Shampoo (12-18oz), Toothpaste (4-6.4oz), and Handtowels. Donations can be dropped in the box in the coat room.
