Help for Lisa Harper and Her Family

Lisa Harper (who has signed the Steppingstones Book and has been on the path to membership) experienced a tragic house fire on Sunday evening. Lisa and her two children are OK, but sadly, her fiancé, Dennis Perry, died of smoke inhalation. We ask that you keep Lisa and her children in your thoughts and prayers, and to put those prayers into action to the extent you are able.

The family has lost everything. They are currently staying with a friend, but are looking for a place to stay, long-term. In the meantime, they are in need of just about everything. Although they have already received enough children’s clothing, Lisa herself can use pants, Size 12, shoes, Size 10 and shirts in Large or X-Large, depending on how they run. You can bring the clothing to the church.

Later on, when they have a place to stay, they will need all kinds of household supplies, including pots and pans, dishes and silverware, bed linens and towels, and all the things that go into reestablishing a household. Please wait for notification of where to bring those items at the appropriate time.

You can also send monetary contributions for the family:

Bank of Ringgold
C/O Lisa Harper
PO Box 628
Ringgold LA  71068.

If you happen to be in Ringgold, the physical address is 2369 Mill Street.  The phone number of the bank is (318) 894-9134.

Thank you in advance for whatever you can do.

2012 Stewardship Campaign

Have you had a chance to talk to your Stewardship Campaign Representative?

If you are an active member, you most likely have been contacted by one of the stewards of this year’s campaign to support the ministries of the church.  You have either had or are planning to have a conversation with the steward about your own stake in the church and your hopes and dreams for its future.

We hope that you have welcomed this opportunity to pause and consider the spiritual dimension of your gifts to the church.

Still haven’t heard from your steward?  If you haven’t been contacted by the end of today (Friday, 11 November 2011), call Robert Smith (Stewardship Campaign Chair) at 318-861-8976 or email him at rwpsmith@comcast.net.
