June Mission Focus
Impact with Hope is a local charity that has international influence. You may know it as International Services of Hope which has been present on Farnsworth Road in Waterville since their incorporation in 1982. (One of the original trustees was Fred Dieter, who was a member of this church before his passing.) It is a community based, non-profit, charitable organization whose mandate is devoted to ensuring a brighter future for children.
Their mission is to reach out and serve others by mending broken bodies, bones, and hearts, feeding hungry families, responding to disasters, and investing in communities throughout the world. More than $0.98 out of every $1.00 is spent directly on the people they serve.
Welcome a Neighbor! We have 16 bags! Please take a WAN bag to a new neighbor and let the Lord make a difference in their lives and yours!

Like to show powerpoints? Able to help some Sundays during the Worship Service. We are in need of back-ups to show the morning announcements and Order of Worship. They are already created, so you would just need to operate the computer. Please see Pastor Mike if the Lord is leading you to help in this area.
Ø We are in need of a volunteer to oversee the Fellowship Ministry. This is an important ministry time when we visit with guest, members, friends and family; share our concerns or a story over a cup of coffee, before we continue with our week. This person would make sure there is food available and make sure there are people signed up to make coffee, set out the treats, and clean up. Maybe consider sharing this responsibility with a friend. Please contact the Church office at 419-878-3645 if you are interested in serving in this ministry.
Ø There is also an opportunity to sign up to help on a Sunday or to help for a month. An opportunity to serve where needed to continue an important ministry.
