of more singers (especially MEN)! We are going to revamp how it has been done in the past with 3 teams and go with one list of singers. You
will be called at random if you are available to sing on that particular Sunday and you may say yes or no if it doesn't work for you. At first we
are going to continue with having a praise team once a month. If we get enough people willing to serve in this way, we may try and go to twice
a month or sing every 3rd Sunday. We are asking you (young and old) to PLEASE consider serving in this way. There's a signup sheet by

April at Southwest MN Christian High School. And yes, time for another school year to conclude. We are thankful for entrusting the
Christian educational instruction of your children, grandchildren, and church youth to us this year. Part of our spring activities is the annual
building fund drive. If you have not been contacted and would like to contribute to the physical school building needs, please forward
your contribution to the school office – 550 W. Elizabeth, Edgerton. We also are facing a shortfall in the general operating fund. Due to
enrollment changes at the beginning of the year and families struggling to meet their tuition costs, the general fund budget is running low on
funds. Again, God’s provision is that we have been gifted a matching gift challenge. An anonymous donor is matching gifts for the general
fund totaling up to $10,000. Please earmark the area of your contribution in the memo line, building or general fund, for record keeping
purposes. Thank you for keeping SWMCH families, faculty and staff, and school board in your prayers! We also thank you for your
continued financial support and consideration in supporting year end needs.
