Since losing our family camp spot in Saugatuck MI, we have been looking for a place to host our annual family camp. The Council has chosen another Saugatuck location this year--the UCC Illinois Conference's Tower Hill, to see if this might be a new permanent home for us. More information to come soon on this adventure.
Welcome Meal Fundraiser
The Welcome Meal invites you to see TimeLine's production of "A Raisin in the Sun."
Welcome Meal 2014 costs for the meals are estimated at $20,000. Thankfully we have volunteers who provide desert and beverages. Rarely do we feed less than 60 people on a weekly basis. The cost of the Welcome Meal ministry has been generously supported by a few donors through the years, but now we are being gracefully challenged to fully embrace this ministry, including the costs.
So, you can support the Welcome Meal ministry by attending a special fundraiser onTimeLine Theater’s “A Raisin in the Sun.” This powerful drama “changed American theater forever” (The New York Times) and resonates across generations. Reception will start at
Tickets are $100 each. For reservations, contact Kathy Engert (847) 251-4328 – You may also go to the on-line registration form. We look forward to seeing you there!
