Church of the Lakes is proud to announce that we have begun supporting two One Mission Society missionary families!  Ryan, Melinda and Isaiah Hicks (on the left) and Keith, Jennifer, Luke, Emma, Eliza and Iliana Smith (on the right). 

Welcome to the family!

 

We want to thank everyone who filled shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child.  You have provided hope and joy to many and have given 79 children, somewhere in this world, the opportunity to hear the Gospel message perhaps for the first time!

 

 

PIYO Classes (Pilates and Yoga) are being taught by Justine Kinnick each Saturday at COTL in the Gathering Place.

ZUMBA Classes will follow PIYO each week beginning at 9:50am.  The cost is $2.00 each week whether you attend just 1 or both.  If you have any questions please contact Justine at 317-412-3173 or you can email her at Zumbajustine@gmail.com.

We are one of the "green bean" churches for the Backpack Program in Brown County Schools.  We have committed to taking at least 90 cans of green beans (with pull tabs if possible) to the drop off location each month.  If you can help please drop your donation off in the library at Church of the Lakes.

 

 

Sleeping Mats for the Homeless

A few months ago we began a new ministry.  We started collecting recycled plastic bags and making sleeping mats for the homeless with them.  We start by cutting the bags a certain way and tying them together.  Then we roll the plastic into a ball of PLARN (plastic-yarn), then we crochet them into the sleeping mats.  We go to downtown Indianapolis to feed the homeless once a month and although it may take several months to make a large number of mats, our goal is to deliver at least 100 the first time take them. 

If you have any questions about this ministry please call Vonda Mercer at 317-727-2749 or email her at vonda.mercer@icloud.com  and if you would like to learn how to roll PLARN or crochet mats you can search that on Youtube where they have several videos uploaded.

If you would like to help by rolling PLARN here is a You Tube link that you can go to to learn how.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IstFcg-Ab1Q

If you would like to learn how to crochet the mats please contact us through email and we will send you the attachment and instructions or you are always free to simply give us a call!

If you are dropping off items for any of the 4 collections during the week you might give us a call first to make sure someone is at the church to accept your dontation.

Thank you for helping!
