TECT (Youth Group) Summer Retreat Donations

This summer, our youth were all set to travel to Lincoln, IL for a Work Camp Mission Trip.  Due to the Covid regulations and the risk of traveling that far, we needed to make a change to our summer trip.

We will instead be spending a week in Davis, WV on retreat!  We will engage in conversations around faith, community, and retreat, share in worship and Holy Communion, gather together around the table each evening for dinner, explore Davis and the surrounding community, and complete a service project alongside St. John Lutheran Church (the Lutheran church in Davis)!

We chose to offer this trip at little to no cost to our families and with their blessing use the money that had been raised for both our Osage Nation trip and Lincoln, IL trip that did not and will not happen. This has afforded us the ability to not need to fundraise throughout the pandemic. However, we do come to you with one request!

We will enjoy the majority of our meals at our house in Davis! This means we need groceries…and lots of them to feed 21 hungry people! We will also need to fill our three minivans gas tanks a few times throughout the week! We have identified a few ways in which those who wish to help support this trip for our youth can do so!

  1. Donate money (cash, check or via Tithely) to the youth trip! *select “youth trips” if giving electronically
  2. Donate visa gift cards (There will be a box on the worship registration table to collect gift card and monetary donations.)
  3. Be willing to apply for a Thrivent Financial grant if you are a Thrivent Financial member. Please contact Pastor Melissa directly for more info.

All money collected will help to cover the cost of groceries (which will be purchased in Davis, WV), gas, and other expenses while we are in Davis.

TECT youth are so grateful for all of your ongoing support and prayers! They know these trips we do and the many experiences they have as a youth group would not be possible without your support, prayers, and love. We extend our gratitude to both Grace and Trinity for all that you have done and continue to do to support our young people!

Donations will be collected through July 18. Thrivent Grants must be applied for by June 30 in order to be approved and received in time!

THANKS-Pat Goff has completed the work on the banners that hang in the Sanctuary. This was a tedious/time consuming project.  The Velcro strips that are used to hang the banners to the shields was not consistent which meant that some had to be “pinned” in place using long pin. Pat removed, stitch-by-stitch the old Velcro and replaced with new Velcro so all now match.

PARISH NURSE’S NOOK
SUMMER SAFETY
Summer has arrived with a July heat wave!! We are finally able to enjoy time with our family and friends again. It sure feels great after the year and a half that we have all gone through.  However, there are some safety reminders that are important to review as we begin this season of fun in the sun.

  1. Remember to apply sunscreen even on cloudy days.  Sun damage to skin is cumulative, so it starts at an early age, but the damage may not be evident until we get older.
  2. Water safety-“Be water smart”. Learn to swim to at least know the basics of being able to keep yourself afloat and get a breath.  Safety courses are offered by the Red Cross. Prevent unsupervised access to water if you are at a pool or other body of water. Designate a “water watcher” to keep constant attention on the children who are in or around water until the next “water watcher” takes over.

Always wear an approved life jacket when on a boat or in water that is above your skill ability. Swim near the lifeguard’s chair.  Go in the water with a buddy.

  1. Grilling-Always supervise the grill when in use. Don’t add charcoal starter fluid after fire is ignited.  Never grill indoors. Keep grills away from house, deck, trees, and out in the open. Use long handled tools to provide protection from burns.
  2. Keep a first aid kit accessible in your home, car, and for outdoor activities such as camping, hiking, at the beach, pool etc.  Check expiration dates yearly and refresh supplies as necessary.
  3. Extreme heat- Stay hydrated, provide cool areas and water for your pets, and remember to check on others such as elders and neighbors.

Enjoy the summer but be safe at the same time.  Accidents can happen so quickly, so be proactive to prevent any unfortunate incidents.
