Minneota Area Mission Trip
We are 5 days away from leaving on our trip, and I truly believe that God has been
with us during our planning process, and he has granted us this incredible opportunity
to show his love through service to our neighbors. For it is written in Philippians 4:6:
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition,
with thanksgiving, present your requests to God". This year's mission trip is taking
on a bit of a different format, but I truly believe it will be an experience that
will enlighten our students and give them an opportunity to witness first-
Thank you for your incredible support of our youth. We have 12 Hope Lutheran students attending (25 total) , 4 adults (8 total) and Pastor Allen. We ask for your prayers during our week and we look forward to sharing our experience with you!
THE GLOW CORNER
Our last night of GLOW was May 5th where we had a small carnival with prizes, activities, and a ton of fun for the kids! We were able to have all ages involved, as Confirmation students and Teen Power helped with the games and The Minneota Area Mission Trip students helped with serving food. Students had their faces painted, played games, won prizes, and had plenty of good fellowship. A special thanks to St. Edwards Catholic Church, Minneota School ECFE, and Minneota PTA for the use of the carnival games.
As much as we are sad that the GLOW year has ended, we are excited to start planning for this fall. We’re hoping to return to the classrooms, so we are looking for classroom leaders. If you are interested, please contact Jess or Erin. We have a new curriculum that we purchased last year, and it has fun group activities as well as individual classroom focus. We are also in search of a music coordinator for Wednesday evenings. Our hope is to have our GLOW students singing in church one Sunday each month! If you are interested in, or know of someone that would be interested, please contact us!
Brenda Swoboda has decided to hang up her hat as our GLOW food coordinator this year. We are grateful for all the time she has put into the GLOW program! We will definitely miss her! Sally Campbell has stepped up to help with next year, along with numerous other volunteers. We are thankful we can continue to serve food. Thank you Brenda and Sally!
We want to give a special thank you to individuals that helped with this challenging
year; Pastor Allan (bible message/song leader), Scott and Roberta Josephson (audio
