  Ladies:  It's time to start preparing for another season of Apples of Gold!  Apples of Gold is building up marriages, mothers, and lives worldwide.   It's not just a mentoring program, it's not just a cooking class...it's a nurturing, inter-generational connection that teaches women how to love
 their husbands, love their children, and how to practice submission, hospitality, kindness, and purity  A new season of AOG will be 
 held September-November 2018.  Meetings will be Mondays (9/17, 9/24, 10/8, 10/15, 10/29, 11/5, 11/12) from 4:30-7:30 at First CRC
 in Edgerton.  There are six lessons and then a grand finale supper with spouses.  The first hour is a cooking demonstration, the second hour is a 
 Bible study, and the third hour we enjoy the meal that was prepared.  If you have participated in AOG in the past, you know what a blessing it is!   Please encourage/invite someone new to participate in the program. If you are interested in being involved, please contact 
 Karen Fey (507-227-6392), Fay Van Essen (507-920-0729), or Ruth Kooiker (507-879-3373).

     THANK YOU
     A huge THANK YOU to everyone who volunteered at this year's Shipwrecked: Rescued by Jesus” VBS or who brought food for the meals! 
 We served about 70 people for the meals and 40 children attended each night, many from the community.  Each night the kids learned that 
 when they are lonely, worried, struggle, do wrong, or feel powerless that Jesus walks with them through those circumstances.  The offering 
 cause went towards building a Happy House for a Haitian family. Evaluation forms for volunteers are in your church mailboxes.  Please return
 them to the Christoffels church mailbox at the CRC before the end of July.  We value your feedback.  May God be glorified through our efforts
 with the children this week.
