1. Love INC Golf Outing – we so want this outing, which we did not host last year, to return as a successful event to help provide funds needed to carry out our ministry. We would LOVE it if each church could assemble even just one foursome. The outing is on June 23 at 9:00a.m. at Pigeon Creek. It is a four person scramble format – $80per person/$320per foursome. If you would like to be a Hole Sponsor you can do so for $300. If each partner church could do just one team, it would guarantee success. Registration forms are on the bulletin board or text Lovegolf to 51555 to register.
2. Food/Personal Care Pantry items – The laundry and personal care items are very low. We are in need of these items: laundry detergent, toilet bowl cleaner, all-purpose cleaner, baby shampoo, baby lotion and syrup.
3. Board of Directors – we still have 2 open spots right now and 2 more coming up in October. We are looking for people willing to serve and help direct Love INC’s ministry as we work hand-in-hand with our church partners. If anyone is interested, please let us know and we can talk with you in more detail about the roles and responsibilities.
