Team Compassion

We have been continuing to rally support around our neighbors who are battling cancer.  We have tried to offer what we can as we are able to our littlest superhero and quite a few moms fighting through this battle and caring for their babies.

 

If you like to cook, or if you would like to offer a meal via a gift card, it would help one of our friends who have more than a load than a person should have to carry.

 

We have a few Meal Trains with openings:
**Meal Sign Up for a mom within our reach battling pancreatic cancer
 

**Meal Sign Up for our little Superhero
 

**Meal Sign Up for a mom who has been loving on her kids as well as hundreds from our community, all while battling cancer once again

Wish List for Parker

 

Our friend Parker turned 2 years old on August 13th.


We would like to shower Parker and his parents with some gifts that he enjoys/needs, and that will help them as they help him move through his battle with cancer. 

Order your #ParkerPower Shirt and help our little Superhero!

A special thank you to all of these local merchants who are joining in the cause to help Parker and his family. Please visit them to drop off your donations and support them as they support Parker.

We are creaing a resource of thoughts, lessons, learned, and advice for future young friends from the present.  We have prepared a Google Doc and ask you to share it with all the young people you can.  This is an anonymous format; no names or emails are collected. We will share the publication when it is completed.  We truly feel it will capture what our young people felt as they moved from "normal" to anything but normal over the past year.  Please encourage your child(ren) to participate.  We know school staff, church youth leaders, and we are all looking forward to learning from the introspective offerings from our young friends.  

Please click here to access the survey and share your thoughts.

Calendar

Wed. Sep. 28 - See You at the Pole

Old Quarry Middle School’s Flag Pole (north side of school)

7-7:20am
Lemont High School’s Flag Pole (north side of school)

8-8:20am

See You at the Pole (SYATP) is an annual gathering of students of all ages at a flagpole in front of their local school for prayer, scripture-reading and sharing of our faith during the early morning before school starts. This event began in 1990, in the United States, where public schools cannot sponsor prayers and some decided to mark one day each year to gather to pray for the students, staff, administration of the school, as well as local and national government and personal petitions.  It has grown by word of mouth, announcements at youth rallies and churches, and the Internet and now occurs internationally.
