"The purpose of life is to listen - to yourself, to your neighbor, to your world, and to God and, when the time comes, to respond in as helpful a way as you can find... from within and without." - Mr. Rogers
Those wise words of Mr. Fred Rogers can be applied directly to our vision and mission here at Living Stones and more specifically to our Summer in the City initiative. There's still many more events and opportunities for you to get involved! All the details can be found using the LSC App and on our website. Here's what's coming up in the next couple of weeks:
*Embrace Summer Program Volunteer: 7/8-8/1, 8am-noon (daily needs for volunteers)
*Go and See @ Civil Rights Heritage Center; 7/17, 6:30-8pm
*Prayer Walk @ LSC: 7/26, 6:30pm
Ready. Set. School! Saturday, July 27th, 10am-2pm: This "I Love the South Side" event will connect students/parents living in our neighborhood and attending SBCSC schools with the right tools and resources they need to start back-2-school on the right foot! Lots of ways for you to get involved!
1. Collecting donations for multiple needs for our event: school supplies; hygiene kit items; and school uniforms. You can find specific items needed here.
2. Make a commitment on your family calendar as we'll need many volunteers to pull this off.
3. Your monetary donations (above and beyond your weekly giving) will greatly impact this event! Donations can be made here. We promise to stretch each dollar as much as we can to make the biggest impact on this event and those in attendance.
Are you a parent? We have an amazing resource to help you focus on what matters most! Parent Cue is a free app that can be downloaded and will help you stay connected with what is happening when your child is in LSC Kids! and Student Ministries. The goal of the app is to remind you why what you do is so important. We think this resource is super helpful for every parent at every phase - because parenting is hard and no one should feel like they are in it alone! Go to your app store and search for "Parent Cue." Questions, contact Jenn.
If you're a smart phone user, consider ditching the bulletin and using the LSC APP instead. Any info in the Sunday bulletin can be found on the app... and more! You could help us save a few trees and pass on the bulletins on Sunday mornings. If you don't have the app, you can search "Living Stones Church" in your app store or text "APP" to 1-574-248-4282 for the link.
