MARCH 25th SLEEP IN HEAVENLY PEACE PROJECT
On Saturday, March 25th we will be participating in the loading and delivery of beds to families in need in Kankakee. We will depart the church at 8:45 am and join a group at Olivet Nazarene College. From there we will disperse into groups to deliver the beds, reconvene for lunch, and then return to the church around 2 pm.
We are only able to take 20 people this time; therefore, please make sure you sign up by completing both waivers below. If you have problems accessing either form, please contact Josh Hamann or Neal Currier.

Lock-In All Nighter
Fusion Youth Serve Up a Feast
28 youth showed up during our Turkey Supper to help with our 100th annual Turkey Supper. A majority of them took a break to grab a quick photo (see above). We can’t thank you all enough for all your help!
November: We Need EVERYONE’S Help
Youth (and parents): We could use your help for this year’s 100th Turkey Supper. There are several dates/times/jobs to sign up for including:
Sunday, October 30th: Help unloading supplies and set-up after church.
Friday, November 4th: If your child is able to be released from school for community service hours we could put them to work most of the day.
Saturday, November 5th: Set-up/odd jobs during the day/early afternoon. Also, (here is where we need the most help) we need youth servers from 3:30 to 8:30 pm. If you and/or your student can help the entire time, that would be great. Otherwise, consider signing up from 3:30 to 6, or 6:00 to 8:30 pm. Also, a clean-up crew stays from 8 til whenever to help. Community service hours are available.
*Please contact Josh/Neal or the church office to sign up for one, any, or all of these opportunities.
**Parents – even if you aren’t a part of the church – we are also looking for a few people willing to cook turkeys the night before (directions are provided), to bake or provide pies/desserts and deliver them to the church, to donate raffle baskets for our raffle, and more. Ask for more information or details.

Lunch & Movie (August)
A rain-storm washed away our hope to go play miniature golf, but that didn’t cancel all the fun. Several youth stayed and enjoyed lunch and a movie.
