Mercy Ships Coming To TNT March 7

Steve and Laura Scott, from Flagstaff, AZ, recently returned from a 3 month tour on the hospital ship Africa Mercy, where they were docked in Cameroon, Africa.

MercyShipThey will be our guest speakers on March 7 for TNT. Steve served in the Deck Department as a ship’s carpenter and Laura served in the Hospital Department as a Nurse.

Come hear their story about life about a Mercy Ship and HOW they made a difference in the lives of those who have nothing. Mercy Ships is one of the international charities that we support through the Mission and Outreach Committee every year.

“Bucket of Love JUSTA Center”

Love        The Buckets of Love Project has been a HUGE Success.

We had over 55 Buckets of Love adopted and  filled. This is 10% more than anticipated and really will make a profound impact on the lives of the men and women who WERE homeless and have transitioned into their new apartments and YOU have provided them the materials to keep their new homes’ clean. What a blessing you have provided with your love, caring, and generosity.

JUSTA Center Starter Kits

JUSTA Center needs our help with starter kits for those going into independent living – their own apartment. They will no longer be homeless!!!

Needed now are coffee pots, toasters, silverware, and pots and pans. Just bring them to the office and Lee Stewart will make sure that they get to JUSTA Center.

Habitat for Humanity

Members of Lakeview UMC served lunch at a local Peoria work site for a Habitat for Humanity work group.

The home was being built in the memory of the late Julie Lutz and her husband Jack Lutz financed the build and has headed up the build as well.

The Mission and Outreach Committee sponsors lunches when there are builds locally in the West Valley. We also do a separate fund raising event every Fall with the little banks that are taken home to fill for tax deductible donations when a check is written to Habitat to Humanity.
