Today, May 19, 2017, is National Bike to Work Day!
Was your bike tuned up and ready to ride? Instead, you might need a new bike in order to take advantage of all the benefits--economical transportation, good exercise, environmental care, community engagement, etc.--biking provides. Whether you need a tune-up or a new* bike, Venture North Bike and Coffee Shop is available to meet your needs. For further information, contact 612-377-3029 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
*Remember to donate your old bike to Venture North’s bicycle apprentice training program!
Mark your Calendars: Summer Programming at Redeemer Begins June 14th!
This summer, Redeemer will once again be engaged in lots of summer programming for the church and community. Redeemer hosts STEP-UP interns, youth aged 14-21 who will be working in a variety of roles in the church, bike shop and community. Additionally, Redeemer hosts programming for younger youth on Wednesdays and Fridays throughout the summer as well as VBC programming. Each Wednesday, Redeemer holds an outdoor cookout with support from our partner churches. The first cook-out will be on June 14th and will serve as a kick-off to summer at Redeemer. We hope we see you there!
Here a Need, There a Need, Everywhere a Need!
Redeemer’s summer programs are about to start. They bring many important opportunities. They also bring needs. There are educational needs for youth field trips. There are service needs for community cook-outs. There are fundraiser needs for larger projects. Did you know Thrivent Action Teams can help meet all of these needs? Even if you are not a Thrivent member, you can become an Associate Member and apply for a Thrivent Action Team to receive $250 to help meet these needs and many more. Please contact Mary Simonson Clark at email@example.com or 612-636-5104 for Action Team ideas or assistance.
Help Get the Word Out
The Youth Staff team at Redeemer is looking for volunteers from the church to help get the word out about our summer programming. We will be walking the neighborhood and knocking on doors on May 22nd and 29th from 3:00-5:00pm. If you are interested in helping out, please sign up HERE, or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
