The Life on Life Initiative continues to sweep the nation as Life Members organize and participate in projects that are setting setting people “functionally” free in society. Here are a couple of events that took place in the Midwest in the month of June and July:
Life Members Participate in “Field Day for a Cause” for Life on Life – written by Kelly McGinley
Life’s motto, “Have fun, make money, make a difference” has been the call from day one. I love that the Life on Life Initiative encompasses two of the three. It’s always fun serving others and making a difference. For the month of June, Team Stealth United Forces had it’s first ever field day for a cause. The qualification for attending the event was to bring a donation of monetary value or a material item from the organization’s wish list.
We had an awesome time and had so much fun playing games. We raised $85 and many, many shelter supplies for the YWCA of Rock County, WI.
When my daughter’s and I dropped the donation off at the YWCA, they were quite surprised by the random donation from Life. It was so great to surprise them and show each of my daughter’s the value of helping others just because it feels good.
Life Members Participate in a Church Clean-up for Life on Life – written by Kayla Hemp
Our original plan for our Life on Life Initiative was to do a car wash fundraiser for Operation Underground Railroad. However, due to the weather and a few other factors, it was clear that it was not the day for a car wash. So, a couple of days before the event, I reached out to a staff member at my church, Highpoint Church in Naperville, IL, and asked if we could serve there in some way as our back-up plan. The church is a 4-story failed office building that was transformed into a church, so there are a lot of windows. The windows need cleaning every few months and they were due for a cleaning. We had 8 volunteers that were able to show up that day and serve.
“It was a lot of fun and boy does that church have a lot of windows!” – Tammy McNeil (Life Member)
“It was a big job. The group worked diligently and thoroughly to get it done. This is not a small church and I am proud of the work we did as a group. This changing of events showed me that there is always a place to serve. Sometimes it takes a little extra effort to find a place, but they are out there.” -Kayla Hempe (Life Member)
“Thanks a lot for beautifying our building. Please thank everyone personally who served. They did this work for the Lord and His glory. I do appreciate your servant hearts!” – Alex (Employee at Highpoint Church)
Thank you to all of the Life Members who participated in these Life on Life events in Wisconsin and Illinois. Your service and contribution truly made a difference.
