The following are a few recent developments from April-May at Cristo Rey Lutheran Church.
Partnership with Kingdom Workers
Last week, Kingdom Workers approved adopting us as a host congregation. This means they are committed to partnering with us on outreach and evangelism projects. They will be sending a team of Spanish-speaking volunteers to canvass neighborhoods this summer. In December, they will be sending a team to canvass for our Christmas Posada. Learn more about Kingdom Workers at kingdomworkers.com.
Special Gift Received
On April 30, we received a gift of $254.73 from Holy Cross Lutheran School in Madison, WI. These funds are from their school chapel offerings and were given in support of our outreach initiatives.
Water, Coffee, and Cups
Recently, we received two Thrivent Action Team Grants allowing us to purchase a drinking water system. This system provides both hot and cold purified water. It is in the nursery. These grants also allowed us to purchase new coffee makers and custom coffee cups with our logo and contact information. These cups will be used at our outreach events.
Building Project Update
Last week, the plastering and painting of the building exterior was completed. This week, work will begin on installing flooring in the bathrooms and annex. Soon, the church council will finalize options for a new sign that best aligns with our mission and ministries. When all aspects of the building project are completed, the council will make plans for a dedication service.
