Thank you to all of the donors of water, time, money, and love.  We could not do this without you.  Here are the numbers from Week 11:

Volunteers contributed hours 213 this week.

As the 2016 Heat Respite @ Grace Lutheran Church comes to an end this week, we have a message from our pastor:

"Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of services, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who activates all of them in everyone.  To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good."  

-1 Corinthians 12:4-7

I am grateful to God for all the ways the Spirit has been made manifest among us these past twelve weeks of heat respite!  Whether the manifestation of the Spirit in you was volunteering, donating, or participating in the program, we are blessed to be in community with you. We are grateful for the generosity that has allowed this year's heat respite program to function, both generosity in financial gifts and generosity of spirit. In worship on Sunday, September 4, we will lift up with thanksgiving the names of individuals, congregations, and other partners who volunteered or donated to heat respite 2016. Know that we see the Spirit at work in you! 

With joy,

Pastor Sarah
