More great work was done by the Rejoice crew today. Playground cleanup, hedge trimming, power washing, flower bed cleanup and preparation for painting the Johnson Hall entryway. These young people have great attitudes and a willing spirit. Thanks Kelly McDermott for the wings for lunch! Here’s a few pics from the day. Please stop by if you have the time. And yes, your pastor did some sweating too. Lots to do.

God is blessing us through partners in ministry this week. The youth group from Rejoice Lutheran in Frisco is spending a week of service at Gloria Dei. They are hard workers. Today they polished and vacuumed all the pew chairs, moved and sorted office furniture for taking pictures for insurance and pulled down all the wallpaper to prepare for painting. They will be at Gloria Dei through Friday, 9am-4pm doing service work for us. This will be a huge advancement for us in getting ready to return in person.
Anyone is welcome to come work alongside them throughout the week for any amount of time. Tomorrow morning we will do some yard work, weed killing, pulling weeds and trimming bushes. Later they will do some painting in Johnson Hall.
Thanks to Stacy Hanson and Marcus for providing a delicious pulled pork lunch for them today!
Thank you to Pastor Adam Stockton from Rejoice for arranging this. Thanks also to volunteers from GD, Sandra Tippett, Kathy Helms, Kelly McDermott and Joe Hastings for joining in the fun. I’ll give an update each evening.
Grace and Peace,
