Just can’t say enough about the “kids capes of courage” outreach!

Just recently 7 capes were mailed to a family of seven children after the sudden loss of their father.  Many have been given to hospitals, and individuals.

FISHER HOUSE

The purpose of the FISHER HOUSE is to provide temporary lodging for Veterans’ families during a medical crisis. The house offers a warm, inviting, and often calming environment where family members can find encouragement from others experiencing similar circumstances. It’s considered to be a, “home away from home” and provides a sense of comfort while a loved once is undergoing medical treatment as an inpatient at the V A St. Louis Health Care System. There is no fee for families staying at the Fisher House. For more information visit their website - www.fisherhouse.org or call (888) 294-8560.

2019

There are several at the church who faithfully participate in Nameoki’s Laundromat Ministry.


The individuals from our church choose a local laundromat in our area (one of six) and pay for the laundry for an individual or family; sometimes it is a senior, or a young mother, a single father, or even a college student.




                          






Barbeque Fund Raisers this year:

September 20 + 21

October 25 + 26

We are seeking your help to make it a great success! We’ll need our volunteers to help peel and cut potatoes, and bag bread on Thursday, May 16th at 9:00 a.m. On Friday, May 17th & 18th we’ll need help with set up, cooking, serving, taking orders and clean up. See Myna or Jenny Dippel if you can assist in any way.




                          






Our church members goal is just to give the person a gentle reminder that someone cares and to give an encouraging word if needed. They sometimes invite them to church or give them information about Nameoki UMC if they don’t have a home church.

Kudos to this ministry team! Keep up the good work!




                          






The Men’s Group would like to see the younger men in the church join us so that we could get to know each other better and do more things for God and His church.
