UH Bridges Christmas Party [Help Needed]

This Saturday, December 2nd, Bridges Int’l is excited to host a Christmas Party for their international student friends! Their hope is that as they celebrate Christmas with their students and share the gospel through the Christmas story that many will learn the truth of Jesus and believe in Him. They need help with food for the Christmas party. Will you consider helping?

Here are the things needed:

Main Dishes:  Rice with veggies, Spaghetti with sauce (no meat), Macaroni & Cheese, Vegetable Lasagna, Red Beans with Rice (no pork), and Chicken (baked/fried)

Side Dishes:  Sweet or Mashed Potatoes, Beans or Peas, Asian Noodles Summer Squash Corn or any other vegetable

Salads:  Potato Salad, Carrots, Apple, Raisin, Raw Veggies, Spinach Salad

Desserts:  Cookies, Pies, Cakes, Fresh Fruit

If you do not want to prepare food, money is acceptable and needed to purchase extra food such as ethnic food or pizzas.

They need the food by 4:00 p.m. (this Saturday, Dec. 2nd) at the BSM (4801 Calhoun Rd, Houston, TX 77004)

Also, you are welcome to attend the Christmas party (5-9pm) and help with set up before or clean up after the party.

Please e-mail Lily Wu at lily.wu@bridgesinternational.com or call her at 318-525-6708 (cell#) with any questions.

Thank you so much for considering their need!

Bridges’ biggest need is prayer. Please pray for the following:

  • that God will help the UH Bridges staff with all the details and planning for the Christmas party
  • for God to soften the hearts of the international students to be open to Jesus
  • for many students to accept Christ through hearing the gospel and the true meaning of Christmas

Christmas Support for Pregnancy Help Center

This year Cornerstone will be supporting Pregnancy Help Center by offering a PHC Christmas Tree, just as we have the past two years.  For three weeks, beginning Sunday, November 26, we will have the tree in the Sanctuary Foyer filled with “ornaments”.  Each paper ornament will have an item printed on it that you may purchase to help the women and their families – anything from items for the babies and toddlers, to maternity clothes, to Gift Cards.  We will have a Christmas box near the tree where you can leave your donated items.  Our last day to receive donations will be Sunday, December 10.

The mission at the PHC is to minister to the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of women and their extended families as they deal with the circumstances surrounding a present, potential or former pregnancy, by sharing the truth and love of Jesus Christ.  They provide pregnancy tests, peer mentoring for men and women, educational classes and the Earn While You Learn (EWYL) program.  PHC encourages and teaches healthy parenting.  They also provide abortion recovery classes for those that are in need of healing.

Deck the Halls – Nov 24

Come Friday, November 24 at 10am and help prepare the campus for the Christmas season. Junior high kids and above are welcome to help. If you need childcare, please call the office at 281-579-1080. If you would like to bring a snack that would be great, if not, feel free to enjoy food brought by others. Contact Lauren Torregano, 832-741-5785, with questions.

Feeding B4 Feasting Update

There are only 2 more weeks to sign up and drop off food items for the Feeding B4 Feasting food drive.  Please click on the link below to see what is still needed and then look for the red barrel in the church office to drop off items.

To date, giving has been really slow.  Most likely this is due to Harvey relief efforts.  If possible, please help us create 16 Thanksgiving meals for the customers of Katy Christian Ministries.

Feeding B4 Feasting 2017

 

Feeding B4 Feasting 2017

This is Cornerstone’s 11th year to host our Feeding B4 Feasting event. The purpose of Feeding B4 Feasting is to provide Thanksgiving meals for the hungry before we enjoy our own feasts. This year, our meals will be provided to Katy Christian Ministries, who will distribute them to the least, lost and left behind in the Katy ISD area. Our goal is to put together 16 boxed Thanksgiving meals.  Please consider helping in the following ways:

• Sign up to bring menu items by visiting:   SignUpGenius-Feeding B4 Feasting 2017
• You may leave your donations in the red barrel in the church office.
• In lieu of providing food (particularly perishables like turkeys, pies, breads, etc) consider donating a gift card from HEB.
• Write a letter to the family who will receive the meal.
• Include a favorite recipe with all the ingredients with a special note as to why it’s a family tradition.
• Pray for the families receiving the meals.

The CSCK families will spend the morning of November 12th decorating boxes and writing letters and prayers to the KCM customers.

Arc Open House August 10

Summer break is almost over.  This means the Arc of Katy will soon be leaving us.  It has been a wonderful summer full of crafts, food, and play time.

We have one last event with the Arc.  We are providing a reception at their annual Open House on Thursday, August 10 at 1:00 – 2:30 p.m.  Everyone is invited to join the celebration.  Doniece Russell is coordinating the reception.  She would like everyone to know she still needs a few volunteers to help at the event and a few food items are still needed.  To sign up, please visit:  Arc Open House Sign Up 

Thank you to everyone who has pitched in with our efforts to bless and encourage the Arc of Katy during their stay here on campus.  Especially:

  • Cosecha de Vida for moving their worship out of the gym for the summer
  • Linda Cover and Lee Williams for creating wonderful lunches
  • May Gourlay and Tucker Kutzer for providing recreation
  • Doniece Russell for helping out with Community Crafts and coordinating the Open House

The campers and staff at the Arc of Katy have told us over and over how they look forward to their summers here at Cornerstone.  Not only because they love the facilities, but because of the way we love on them while they are here.  Their campers are truly some of the happiest people we know.  If you have not spent time with them, you are missing out on a great blessing.
