   You did it!!  We challenged the church school classes to bring offerings for the World Renew catalog program and said that 
 we would try to match them. They raised $353.74 during the school season.. On June 2 we had a special offering and matched
 the church school with an additional $527.50. So we will be sending $881.24 to World Renew to buy the gifts that the kids 
 have already chosen. Thank you everyone!!!

   The Southwest MN Christian High School Society meeting was held on Tuesday, June 4. Information from the 
 past school year, financial reports, and a collaboration report were presented. School board members elected are 
 Traci Vander Haar, Grant Post, Tadd Prins, and Crystal Vis. The SWMCH Foundation meeting was also conducted 
 with Todd Vis and Roger Talsma elected to this board. As we look forward to a new school year beginning on 
 Tuesday, August 20, we cannot express enough thanks to our Heavenly Father for His love and for the opportunity 
 we have to share His love and story on a daily basis in the high school educational setting. With thanks for your support
 for the educational, spiritual, and physical well-being of our youth, we are reminded that each generation needs to have
 the support of those who have come before them…”Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask
 or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus
 throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen.” –  Ephesians 3:20-21

   THANK YOU
