DuPage PADS update:
Dear Chruch Family,
I am sitting in my living room this morning in awe of God's wonder and praising him for the work he has done in the PADS Ministry. I'm looking at the PADS sign up sheets and see a wealth of people coming out for service and I am overwhelmed. The sign up sheet for food is completely full and even more donations will come. There will be homemade Bean Soup, homemade cookies (for lunches), Romane lettuce for salads (from Gleaners for the Lord) and breakfast sausage to bless the table, we will have a meal fit for a king. My heart is full becuase our children will come and serve, they will be there to help with set up and clean up, so much good to be done, Praise the Lord.
I am remembering Pastor Don's sermon and thanking God for the response to his word in 2 Cor 8:7...excel in this grace of giving.

PADS Ministry date 1/18/11 Volunteer Needed
This coming Tuesday, January 18th will be our Service date for the PADS Ministry to the Homeless.
We have a special need of volunteers for the Breakfast shift on Wednesday, Jan 19th, 5:30am to 7:30am. Because of
the changes PADS has made to our responsibilities we need more adult helpers. Right now we have only 3 adult helpers and we could use at least 5 more.
We are also short of workers for the overnight shifts. If anyone can help with this need please let me know.
Food item are still needed, so consider taking a look at the sign up sheet at church to volunteer. Thank you for your wonderful support of this Ministry and your prayers for the PADS clients.
