Update on Flood Relief

It has been almost 2 months since our area was hit by historic floods. We have been blessed by how our body came together to serve and show the love of God to our community in this time of need, and we were able to help in significant ways.
Here in Longmont it seems like things are getting back to normal, but the truth is that flood relief efforts are hardly over. There are still great needs in this area, especially in Lyons. I drove through Lyons on US 36 last week, and the amount of destruction is incredible.
Since early October, White Fields has been partnering with Calvary Relief, based out of Sarasota, FL, led by Curt and Mary Jo Hencye. Since coming to town, Curt and Mary Jo have gotten connected in Lyons and have been able to head up relief efforts there and are making a big impact in helping people in that community.
If you are interested in helping in the continued flood relief efforts, here are the ways you can do that:
Give: We have a Colorado Flood Relief fund set up; all of the proceeds go directly to helping flood relief efforts and meeting the needs of flood victims.
Volunteer: Calvary Relief needs people who are willing to help with a variety of tasks related to cleaning up homes and businesses in Lyons. They have a job for every person and every skill set. If you’d like more information about working with them, please call Curt Hencye directly at: (941) 915-9560
Blessings,
Pastor Nick

In the Works: Marriage Retreat & Mission Trip

There are some great things coming up in the near future at White Fields. Here’s a quick update of a few things we’re working on:

Marriage Retreat – March 7-8, 2014
At White Fields we care about marriage and we believe that great marriages need to be cultivated. Last year’s retreat was great, and we expect this year’s retreat to be even better.

We encourage all the couples in the church to come. If you can, try to come for the overnight getaway option – but if you can’t, definitely still join us on Saturday. We will be providing child care on Saturday. 

We will be announcing prices and location soon, but the dates and the speakers are fixed. We had such a good response about Tommy and Debi Schneider from our Date Night event, that we are going to have them come back to teach at the Marriage Retreat. They will be teaching different material than what they did before or what we had at last year’s retreat – rich stuff that will be helpful for all.

Save the dates and we hope you will join us! 
If you know anyone who might benefit from this, it is open to anyone. Feel free to invite friends or family!

Mission Trip to Hungary – July 11-22, 2014
God’s mission to seek and to save the lost is part of the DNA of who we are called to be as Christians, and who we as a church strive to be. For years White Fields has been sending teams on summer mission trips to Hungary to work with Golgota Eger, the church which we planted in Eger, Hungary, in an English Camp outreach they do for youth in the area. We will likely also be doing some outreach to the gypsy community in the city of Heves, where Golgota Eger has a church plant.

English Camp has been a very fruitful outreach tool over the years, and we have seen many kids come to know the Lord through it and plugged into the local church there. 

Pray about joining us this year for the mission trip. Adults and youth are welcome to sign up any time from now on. We will begin fundraising and planning starting even in the next few weeks.

We’re excited about these things that are in the works, and hope that God will use them greatly for His glory!
