Picnic Shelter Funding Update 

Support for the picnic shelter fundraiser has been great! We've raised $8,640 thus far, which is 6% of the $144,480 project funding goal. Thank you all who have contributed to the project. 

The shelter will be used for a variety of events including summer worship services, VBS, Sunday Night Live!, outdoor weddings and family gatherings. 

The 34' x 64' structure will feature wood scissor trusses with glulam beams supported by eight, nine-foot stone-wrapped steel columns. Weatherproof materials are featured throughout. 

A 1500-watt sound system coupled with custom LED lighting will provide users with an immersive outdoor experience.

Can we rely on your support? Donation envelopes are available in the entrance of the Sanctuary. Be sure to note "Picnic Shelter Donation" on the envelope. You may also donate online at www.lifeathope.org/give and select the picnic shelter icon.

Ken Hill Summer Noon Organ Recital 

Ken Hill returns July 18 to perform an organ recital here at Hope! Ken's performance is part of the the Fond du Lac Area Organists Association's 2024 Summer Noon Organ Recital series. Ken will perform his recital from 12:15-12:45 p.m. in the sanctuary.

The public is welcome. There is no charge for this event. Free-will offerings will be taken. Proceeds will go to a scholarship fund to support the training of young organists and the promotion of future series of summer organ recitals.

New Location for Pantry of Hope 

The Pantry of Hope has moved. We can now be found in Room H102, just around the corner from the church office. We now have more space and better accessibility (no stairs) to help more people in need. Come and check it out! 

Hope's members can shop at anytime, and non members can schedule an appointment. We take appointments on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We have a wide variety of foods, some fresh and some frozen as well as some baby items. Non expired donations are accepted and can be placed in the pantry or in the cornucopia in the Narthex any time. We rely 100% on donations of food and monetary gifts and are not included in the church budget. 

If you are interested in helping in the pantry, we sure could use you. Maintaining the shelves, shopping, scheduling appointments and meeting with people are some of the tasks that we need help with.   Please call Sandy Barber 920-923-4741 or Jon Moen 920-579-0190 if you are interested. 

Thank you to everyone who supports the pantry. We have many people who shop there regularly and appreciate it very much.
