VBS Mission Project – Sleep In Heavenly Peace
Our mission project for VBS is in partnership with the Catherine McAuley Center
(https://cmc-cr.org) and Sleep in Heavenly Peace (https://www.shpbeds.org/chapter/ia-cedar-rapidsmarion). The Catherine McAuley Center helps individuals and families through refugee resettlement here in the Cedar Rapids area, while Sleep in Heavenly Peace works to make beds for children/youth so no child sleeps without one. These two organizations have come together for a project and we are helping to assist by trying to raise $250 to provide the material for the making of a twin bed. We are also going to collect twin-size bedding.
The congregation has invited to help with this project and raise enough money that we could donate additional beds. Thus far, the congregation has raised $673.00 from individual gifts. Awesome!
And … an individual of the congregation is willing to match – dollar for dollar, our donations! This generous gift will allow our dollars to do twice as much! Please consider your gift and give generously!
