I have to first start off by saying THANK YOU for your generosity in creating Hygiene Kits for MUST ministries. It was a beautiful, overwhelming sight to see so many donations that will benefit one of our ministry partners and a local ministry. Thank you for being the hands and feet of Jesus in this way! Your involvement and generosity has been a gift and encouragement to many.
Last month, we wrapped up our Summer Nights events with highlighting how you can be involved in Women's Ministry this year. We talked about how every part of the body of Christ is important and necessary and how the body of Christ needs YOU to be your part. So how might YOU 1). Participate 2). Serve or 3). Pray at Fellowship? I want to encourage every one of you to be apart of Women's Ministry through prayer. Will you accept the invitation to pray faithfully for the women at Fellowship? Will you pray for women as they serve in children's, youth, care, community groups, and on staff? Will you pray that God will do only what He can do to transform us into the women He's called us to be? I'm inviting you to be PRAYER WARRIORS for the Women at Fellowship because our work is nothing apart from the Holy Spirit working in and through us. In our time together, we also gifted the participants with prayer magnets with the words "pray continually: 1 Thess. 5:17" as a reminder to pray for the women at Fellowship. If you're interested in receiving one, let us know and we'll coordinate a time on Sunday for you to grab one! They're pretty cute. :)
If you're interested in serving at future events; we'd love to hear from you! To let us know, please email Analda Merritt at to let us know of your interest. We'll also be loving on our college women through Care-Packages. If you have a female, college student a part of Fellowship and you'd like for them to receive a Care-Package, please email the following information to Analda Merritt ( ).

I'd also like to invite you to consider participating by purchasing items for our college students. We've created an Amazon Wishlist for you to purchase items which will be delivered to the church for a mid-semester distribution to our college students. You're also more than welcome to drop off items in the café from now till the end of the month. Please consider writing a note of an encouragement as well! Hand-written notes are literally the BEST.
