collecting for box of balloons
Our Quest kids will be joining with Box of Balloons to put together birthday boxes kids for kids on June 24th. Box of Balloons is a Non-profit organization whose mission is to make every birthday happy and every child celebrated by providing birthday supplies to children in need. In preparation for this, we will be doing a supply drive! Please help us by bringing in donations next and the 24th. We will need generic tableware (solid colored plates, cups, napkins), streamers, and gift cards (Walmart, Target, Dollar Store, & local grocery stores) for the cupcakes. Donations can be dropped at the Box of Balloons table in the lobby.
JUNE 22ND & 23RD—JR. TRIBE!
Mark your calendars for our Father-Son (5 yrs-8th grade) overnight camping trip at Mallard Bend Campground (Sheridan IL). The Family Connect Team is putting together more details & looking forward to an epic weekend of fun, encouragement, bonding and of course, shenanigans! Be on the lookout for the FB invite + an email coming soon.
June 24th—DOMESTIC VIOLENCE TRAINING
Pastor Neil Schori will be hosting a training from 1-3 p.m. at his home (465 Cimmaron Dr. West, Aurora 60504) to learn more about domestic violence and how we can all respond to this epidemic that impacts 1 in 4 women (and 1 in 7 men). Jesus stands with the oppressed and marginalized, and so does our community. Lunch will be provided, please rsvp to firstname.lastname@example.org.
ONE MINUTE MISSION—Baby Wipes
Each month, our community collects a specific kind of item for donation to the Hesed House mission in Aurora. Our mission for the month of June will be Baby Wipes. Please drop your donations off at the Hospitality table on Sunday mornings. To learn more about Hesed House, visit hesedhouse.org.
Regarding regular giving, financial gifts, and other donations—The Edge does not pass a basket or take offerings during the service, but we do believe the people of God are called to radical generosity! If you consider The Edge your home and want to give, we would love for you to use our online giving system for scheduled or one-time gifts by visiting our giving page. You can also drop your gifts in the offering box (by the main entrance of the auditorium) during Sunday morning service.
