Food Boxes (San Pablo)

It has been a privilege to partner up with our sister church, San Pablo Lutheran Church, in Aurora to continue to supply Food Boxes for those in need in their community. They leave the boxes on their church's front porch and the community members can stop by and pick-up a box for their own family or for a family in need that they are aware of. They have continued to disperse 90 boxes each month...what a blessing they are to the people of Aurora!

The Great Water Shoot-Out

We had a BEAUTIFUL day for the Students to come out to welcome our new Youth Director, Matthew Meldrum, by participating in the The Great Water Shoot-Out!!

A FUN time was had by ALL (even Matthew, we hope)!
