The Rey de Gloria (King of Glory) congregation has taken the leadership in providing a summer daycare program for children whose working parents are unable to provide for adequate and safe daycare, including meals, medical/social services, worthwhile activities and learning opportunities.
The Schowalter Foundation has been unusually generous in providing substantial financial assistance for several years, but this year, with a reduction in funds available to grant, they have provided about half the amount given in prior years. Rey de Gloria thus needs to raise about $14,000 to cover the costs, which do not include many hours of volunteer labor including our traveling Summer VBS team which will be helping out later in the summer.
If you would like to help this ministry continue please send checks to South Central Conference PO Box 564 Hesston, KS 67062 designated Rey de Gloria Daycare.
The following flyers can also be used to share this opportunity. They can be downloaded in full color online at the following links:
A vision by Mennonite Women of SCC leadership several years ago led to the creation of a grant program for women from South Central Mennonite Conference churches. All funds are used to help women in their role as a church/community leader or who are experiencing unusual family expenses. Some examples of grants that have been funded include helping pay for conferences, counseling and unexpected expenses. We recently gave grants to help pay for a car (transportation to a job) and to meet monthly expenses when one of the breadwinners was unable to work.
As summer approaches, many organizations will end their year of meetings. Perhaps you, or an organization you’re a part of, have funds that could be distributed to make a difference in the life of a woman, or an entire family. We would love for you to select the Woman to Woman grant fund for that project! As grants are given to women in our churches, we want to maintain a balance that will allow us to help each other. Please help us continue this mission with your donations! You can find information about the grant on the SCC web site, Mennonite Women tab. (sccmenno.org) Donations can be sent to Myrna Cherry, PO Box 239, Hesston, Kansas 67062 or to the SCC offices.
