Sleep in Heavenly Peace Check Presented on Sunday, September 19
Our mission project for Vacation Bible School was in partnership with the Catherine McAuley Center
(https://cmc-cr.org) and Sleep in Heavenly Peace (https://www.shpbeds.org/chapter/ia-cedar-rapidsmarion).
Our VBS families provided $353.60 along with dozens of sheets sets and blankets. Members and friends of the congregation provided an additional $1816.40 to add to the funds raised by our VBS families. A congregation member has generously pledged to match each dollar raised, doubling our gift for a total of $4340.00.This will allow for more than 17 beds to be made for area children and youth.
On Sunday, Mark Conzett, representative from Sleep in Heavenly Peace, was present at the beginning of our worship service to be presented the check by our Council chairperson, Andrew Buck.
Way to go, Hope UCC and our Vacation Bible School families!
