| Family Promise, Barry County Cares, and More!
Because of our partnership with B2 Outlet Stores, when anyone makes a purchase at the B2 Outlet Store in Hastings, Gun Lake Community Church gets a percentage to pour back into the Gun lake Region. This allows us to multiply hope in many ways. Over the last couple of months, we were able to partner with these different organizations in bringing hope:
- Family Promise of Barry County, a ministry to homeless families, is up and running! Three families are currently being helped and many churches are partnering together to make this mission a success. Robin Walters from GLCC serves on their board and recently shared that one of the families should be back on their feet soon. Through B2, we were able to contribute $2,000.00 to Family Promise’s ongoing efforts. Please continue to pray for this important ministry that is in its first year, and if you want to volunteer, contact Robin or the church office and we will help get you connected.
- Barry County Cares is our primary partner in offering needs assistance to people who live in Barry County. They recently received $1,200.00 from our B2 partnership and continue to be vital to our region.
- Finally, GLCC was able to give a Hope Grant of $500.00 to the Woman’s Life Chapter 908 of the Gun Lake Region to partner in providing special beach wheelchairs for the Gun Lake State Park. These chairs are specially designed to help those with physical limitations gain access to the sand and water. We are excited for the hope that these special chairs will provide.
Hope abounds when people have hearts of compassion and choose to make a difference! How can you help bring hope every day to someone around you? It might be as simple as a warm greeting, a small encouragement, or a short prayer. Join in on the fun!
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit!” Romans 15:13
