Finish Our 1MISSION Project – Fill the Green Buckets

1Mission Finish UpWe are in the home stretch of our 1MISSION project. Our goal was to raise $4,000 to build a home for the Barajas family. We are just $900 away from reaching that goal. We have a couple more weeks to get to the goal.

One way you can be a part of our project is to SHARE our 1MISSION Campaign Page Link. Whatever social media outlet you use (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook), you can share the link to give people an opportunity to give and be a part of providing a home for this family. Here’s the link: Copy it and share it.

Another way to be a part of our project of course is to GIVE. For our Wilmington Church of Christ family, we have a practical way to do that. For the next few Sundays, we will have green buckets (see below) by the doors of our Ministry Center. As you enter or leave, you can drop extra change or dollar bills into the green buckets. Everything given in the green buckets will go toward our 1MISSION family.

Join in with us to reach our goal and provide a home for the Barajas family!

Walk to End Alzheimer’s 2014

PrintThe second weekend in October is the Walk to End Alzheimer’s in Dayton. I participated in my first walk last year and walk in honor of my mother-in-law Phyllis. She was diagnosed a couple of years ago and has been living in a care facility. While I don’t carry the weight of caring for her on a regular basis, I’ve seen up close what a struggle that is for her family. She is not the same wife and mother due to this disease and it is a sad process to watch.

The Walk to End Alzheimer’s is designed to raise funds to further research to find a cure. Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer’s and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Last year we walked with hundreds of people in sea of purple to bring awareness to this disease. I would love to have your support as I prepare to walk. You can make a donation of any size on my Walk to End Alzheimer’s page.

Thanks in advance for any gift you can give.
