THANKS AND PRAISES
Dear Mount Vernon Friends,
My sisters and I deeply appreciate the faithfulness of my Dad’s church family. Even though his memory is very challenged, he knows he is thought of and loved through all the cards and notes and devotionals that you send along. All of those thoughts combine to remind him that he is a child of God. What a blessing to be in the family of God. I hope to be able to visit you this summer!
With love and thanks,
Dear Rev. Little and Staff,
I wanted to extend to you my heartlfelt “Thank You” for being a part of the lovely 40 year tribute to me at the ABC Preschool Graduation Event.

VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL
Vacation Bible School was a success the last week in June. Our theme was “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands.” We were small in number, but mighty in spirit. Vacation Bible School is a group effort and thanks need to be given to all those who volunteered their time. Special thanks go out to our younger volunteers (Crosbi T., Jordan C., Karl J., Madison Muth, and Anna J.). Without their example, the week would have been far less joyful.
COOKING FOR THE KITCHEN
Thanks for your support of our “Cooking for the Kitchen” fund raising projects. In review we sold soup in different months, strawberry jam in June and black raspberry jam in July. We hope you enjoyed our culinary efforts. These sales, combined with the soup sales, produced a combined profit of $2,039.15! Please return any soup or jelly jars to the kitchen. We will need them for future “Cooking For the Kitchen” goodies
EF PROJECT GIFT BASKETS
Thank you to everyone who so graciously donated the 19 baskets for the EF Project fundraiser during the Strawberry Festival. We raised $275 that will be used for the fall mission weekend. EF Project started in the fall of 2016 and its mission is to help homeowners in the Elizabeth Forward area with projects they are physically or financially not able to do themselves. So far, we have served four homeowners with a variety of work. They are humbled that strangers are willing to give up a weekend to help them and they are very grateful. The volunteers also are blessed by serving as the hands and feet of Jesus to those in our community who need some help. Information about the fall EF Project weekend will be announced soon.
