God doesn't want us to be bored in this life. Over the course of this summer break, have you heard a child say, "I'm bored"? I have. God doesn't want us to be bored. He's got stuff for us to do! He wants us to build relationships with other people so that we can build relationships between them and God. That's true no matter what age we are!
So, mark your calendars for these great relationship building events that will help us connect our family, friends, co-workers and neighbors to God. Here they are:
Kickball for a Cause - Every Wednesday, 6:30pm at both of our sites, Green Bay (1167 Kenwood, 2 blocks north of Lambeau Field on Oneida St) and our De Pere site (2066 Lawrence Dr). Bring a team, or your family and friends or just yourself. We will be providing water and lemonade. Bring a lawn chair, if you just want to watch.
Hope Backpacks - Begins July 1 through July 15. Pencil boxes available at no cost in which there is a list of school supplies that need to be purchased and put into a backpack and returned by July 22. Monetary donations also accepted. The backpacks will go to families in need at both block parties. Questions? Contact Lori Rogers at 920-680-6335.
Kids Camp - July 23-28, 9am to 3pm. All 1st through 6th grade stuents (as of Fall 2017-2018) are welcome! Register your kids or sign up to volunteer at stmarkdepere.com/youth.
Block Parties - We will be hosting two different block parties this summer. The first is at our De Pere site on Saturday, July 29 at 6pm. The second is at our Green Bay site on Sunday, August 20 at 11:30am. Inflatable bounce houses, games, free food, and live music are just part of the fun! We will also be giving away back packs full of school supplies at both parties.
"Whatever you do...do it all for the glory of God" (1 Corinthians 10:31).
Have a blessed summer!
