NOMINATE A WORTHY WORK Caring Forever Endowment Nominations are due today! Today is the last day to nominate an organization or individual to receive the Caring Forever Endowment Award for 2014’s award of $1500! Nominees will be organizations or individuals who are working to share the Love of Christ through caring for others. Past awards have been made for work with the homeless, mission work in Cuba, disaster relief work, education and Campus Ministry work. Each of these have been suggested by the congregation through a nomination form like the one below and selected by the Caring Forever Endowment Fund committee. You can nominate a worthy work by filling in this nomination form and placing it in the Caring Forever Box in the Narthex. Father’s Day, June 15th, will present another great opportunity to make a contribution to the Caring Forever Endowment Fund in honor of a loved one. Let us know that your gift is in honor of a Father, and we’ll send him a Father’s Day card to tell him about your gift. Nomination and contribution forms are in the Narthex!
