“On Your Mark – (but some are not yet set) – Go”

The Summer Friendship Gatherings have started, but some are not set and ready to go!

Many of our friends with disabilities and volunteers have yet to register. This is important. Your Friendship group leaders need to know who is coming so they can plan the meals, prepare for special dietary needs, and purchase craft materials.

Connection Ministries needs to print the teaching materials and complete background screens on all the volunteers. The liability and photo release on the application protects both your church and Connection Ministries. Online and downloadable applications can be found at https://connection-ministries.org/application/.

There were about 20 volunteers who attended the in-person training sessions for the Gathering, and a few more who have watched the videos. This year there seems to be an increase in friends attending who have special dietary needs on applications.

Food safety is important for a fun and safe event. As of today, only three people have viewed the food safety video. We will email dietary rosters to all the leaders this week.

The food service video along with videos for all the training topics can be found on our website https://connection-ministries.org/summer-friendship-gathering-training/. The videos are short, and each video describes who should watch it. All companions should watch the videos for the discussion groups. The curriculum materials can also be downloaded at this link.

Help us “Get on our Mark and Set” for your summer’s Gathering. Together we can run this race to win.

“…let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith…” Hebrews 12:1-2
