What joy and blessings we have been able to share and keep sharing! Thank you also for generously supporting Pantry Sunday for the Salvation Army (first Sunday of the month). Your donations are gratefully received and shared with those in need.

The new ways we have all found to step-up to give and serve in some way is awesome. Thank you, and thanks be to God! -Stewardship Committee

Volunteers are greatly needed for Lifewise Academy, the Bible based character education being taught in the lower grades at Colonel Crawford, Bucyrus, and Wynford schools. Volunteers would guide the children from the school to the instruction site, perhaps help with a project, sit with a restless child, or pass out supplies. No preparation is needed. A volunteer just needs to like being with children, caring about them, and wishing to show the love of Christ with them. Time commitment is about 1 ½ hour per session. A volunteer can commit to one session a week, one every week, one a month, or whatever suits the person. The Lifewise program ties a character trait such as Forgiveness to a Bible story such as Joseph’s Dream found in Genesis. For information go to lifewiseacademy.org or speak to
Elwood or Sarah Gebhardt.

Today is Blanket and Tool Sunday here at Good Hope. If you wish to donate to this WELCA project, please pick up an envelope on the display in the narthex and return your donation by the end of October. Just drop the envelope into the offering plate at a worship service or turn it in to the office.
Thanks for your support.
