In my sermon on June 15, I talked about Grace's participation in "Operation Inasmuch". This powerful Christian program gets large numbers of church members out in their community for one day of service and caring for others.
You can learn more about the program at the "Operation Inasmuch" website: http://operationinasmuch.org/
We have chosen Sunday, September 7 as our "Inasmuch Day" here in Grafton, Cedarburg and Saukville.
We will have one worship service that day at 10:00 a.m. followed by lunch at church. After lunch our Grace volunteers will head out and spend the afternoon on a variety of different projects.
Our goal is to get at least 150 Grace members working that day. We've already had 100 sign up that they are interested in participating.
What We Need from You
We want you to be part of our work on September 7. There will be projects for all ages and some can be done by families.
Our planning team is working to plan out a number of activities. Right now we are looking at:
Some of our activities will require funding to make them successful, so consider making a donation to Grace for "Operation Inasumch".
Your Ideas are Needed
We are looking for other ideas for other possible projects that day.
We especially would like to know if you have an elderly or disabled neighbor or friend who might need some light home repair work or have some painting done. Such activities make great "Operation Inasmuch" projects.
If you know of someone call the church office (377-4770) and let us know so we can start working to see if their needs can be met by our volunteers.
Keep Your Eyes Open
You will hear a lot more about "Operation Inasmuch" over the summer months.
Talk about this with your family and friends. Invite others to participate.
Let's make September 7 a great day of serving in Jesus' name!
"For inasmuch as you have done it to one of the least of these my brethren, you have done it to me." (Jesus in Matthew 25:40)
