What Have the Youth Been Up To?Rally Day 2018
EKLC has had an amazing kick-off to the year; Rally "God's Work; Our Hands" Sunday was an amazing success! Thanks to all the teachers and volunteers who worked tirelessly to bring such wonderful activities to life for our young people! The kids very much enjoyed cleaning up around the church grounds and coloring decorations for the Sunday School hallway (look for those in the next couple of weeks!), but I think the highlight was tie-dying the pillow cases with the Lord's Prayer on them. If you haven't already, be sure to check out all the pictures of the pillow cases on our Facebook page!

AED Refresher Training

The Health Ministry Team will have an AED refresher training in the Friendship Hall. The AED is in a wall case in the hallway of the education wing, just off the sanctuary. An AED is short for Automated External Defibrillator and is used in medical emergencies to treat heart arrhythmias.  No medical training or background is necessary to use an AED. We look forward to seeing you there! If you cannot attend, please feel free to familiarize yourself by seeing where the AED is located in case of emergency.

Weekend Meal Program
Bluejay Backpacks is a Cambridge school district program that sends easy to prepare foods home with kids in need over long weekends because many of these families do not have adults home to help cook meals. There are approximately 75 kids in the program today. Each month 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches/
dinners, 2 snacks and 2 cups of fruit/pudding are sent home with each child. Several congregations in the area will help supply food. EKLC will supply 75 pudding cups each month through May. Place pudding donations in the church food pantry box. Mark monetary donations with ‘backpacks’ and put in the offering plate or sent to the church office.

CROP Walk
EKLC will be walking in the CROP walk in Columbus on
October 14. If you are interested in walking or donating, check out our Facebook page or go directly to the website. https://www.crophungerwalk.org/
