“Let the Son Shine In” giving challenge
is approaching the halfway point of our goal. Thank you and praise God
for all the support it has received. Summer is a time when Holy
Counselor’s cash flow is tested, as giving is traditionally lower at
this time. Your extra gifts allow us to continue to offer services to
our members, and others in our communities. Unfortunately, these
expenses “do not take a vacation” so your gifts let us continue to plan
and achieve exciting things. Go to hc-lutheranchurch.org/sonshine to
learn what you help us achieve and ways to join in supporting our
programs. Let us, together, make the SON shine in!
HELP STILL NEEDED !
would like to thank all that have stepped up and helped with this
project. There is still a lot to be done and time is running out. Our
deadline to sign up for golfing is Sept. 1. So now is also the time to
ask everyone you know to attend or pass along our brochure to someone
who does golf.
1. Acquire sponsors. Golf outing brochures are
available and are ready to be handed out to prospective sponsors and
players. The brochure is also available on our website.
2. Local businesses and restaurants
need to be contacted for gift certificates and donations. These
will be later used for prizing and used in our silent auction.
3. There are flyers that need to be hung in our local businesses in Sussex/Wantage, Vernon and Franklin areas.
4. Goody bag items, such as granola bars, water bottles, golf balls, HC pens.
5. Please share this event on Facebook and other social media.
Debbie Morris, Larry Polagye or Pastor Chris for brochures or flyers
after services. If you can help out please email Larry at
The Golf Outing will be held on Sept. 18, at Black Bear Golf Club, Franklin, NJ.
