Gresham Go - To

Weekly Staying Connected

Week of November 9- 15, Updated

Dear Church,

It was good to see you last Sunday! We want to give an extra thanks again to the praise team for all of their preparation and leading us, Joel who helped so much with the sound system, and for your continued prayers and support.

Below are some pics of the ministry that has been happening in this place! During this time where the needs are more and our workers are low - we ask you to prayerfully consider how you can help your church in ministry. Whether it be driving, organizing, answering phones, shopping for toys, computer input, cleaning, cooking, packing food boxes, cleaning .. we have a place for you and need you!

Your time, treasures and talent is needed to further the Kingdom of God and to help people know that they are loved in practical ways. Let's continue to grow deeper in our love for God and our love for each other and community.

Majors Celestine and Shoshannah Ruwethin

We also we request if you can purchase a toy to help with this event - please remember there are toy registries set up to help you.

Church Collection Goals

The Salvation Army's joy is to serve people in the name of the Lord. During this time, even more people need help. Families, businesses, and the church are financially struggling. This is where we as individuals can step out in faith and give to God what is His. Then we watch Him work.

The tithes, offering, and World Services collected help support this ministry's budget. We ask that you pray and determine with/for the Lord what you will commit to financially in this next budget year October 2020 - September 2021. Help invest into this church.

Click on the link to see what our small goals are for this year. We pray that we'll be able to out give ourselves!

Office Closed on Nov. 11 for Veteran's Day

Remind App

Please help us keep you informed by signing up for the Remind App. Simply follow the directions. The goal is to touch base with a newsletter once a week and avoid 25 responses to a group text. This is a secure way for us to do this.
