FCEMF — InterVarsity at FVTC


InterVarsity Christian Fellowship is restarting at Fox Valley Technical College. We are nearing completion of the student organization recognition process and hope to start regular meetings very soon. IV students at the established work at Lawrence Univ. have been helping. Over a dozen students have already signed up.

Please pray for this fledgling witness on campus and the two first-year student leaders (Nicole and Aldo). If you know FVTC students who would be served by Christian fellowship on campus, please refer them to us, with any contact information you might have. You may write to me at webstert, or our FVTC adviser, Deb Buchanan, buchanan.

As always, we are also happy to look up local students at Lawrence University if you have anyone you would like to refer. Since the group there is bigger it is easier for students to find us, but usually a personal invitation from a student leader is helpful.

Thank you for reading this! InterVarsity has been expanding at tech schools in Wisconsin, and it is an especially strategic opportunity considering the large and growing number of international students that are attending these institutions.

God bless!

Dear Colleagues,

Please note the attachments and note from Andrea below. The need for foster care homes in Outagamie County is urgent. Please pass the information on to your congregation. I know within our churches there have to be enough homes to provide this vital ministry. Please feel free to contact Andrea at her information below. Let’s not miss this opportunity to show the care and love these children and families need.

Please consider placing the attached Foster Care Brochure in your bulletin and printing out the Info Session poster and posting it on your bulletin boards and displaying at your information centers.

We have an urgent need for foster homes in Outagamie and Calumet County.

In the state of WI, every 2 hours a child is placed in foster care. Currently, we have numerous children awaiting placement in temporary homes because there are not enough foster homes to meet their needs. We currently have 79 licensed foster homes. We need more!

Caring for children who need a safe and stable home will be the toughest job you’ll ever love and perhaps the most rewarding. Please consider becoming a foster parent to help a child who needs your love, your care and your compassion.

“I think many of us feel that if someone we knew, especially a young person, needed our help, we would be there for them. To me, these kids are just family we don’t know yet! Think about being there for them . . ."-Guy Van Dehy, foster parent for Outagamie and Calumet County.

If you’d like to learn more, feel free to join the foster care team for an informational session to learn more about becoming a foster parent. Or if you’d prefer to meet with a member of the foster care team feel free to call us at 832-5161. The informational session will be on Monday October 8, 2012 at 6:30 p.m. and will run until approximately 8:00 p.m. There will be a brief presentation and time for questions. This will be held at 2012 at 6:30 p.m. at the Youth and Family Services Building 500 W. Fifth St. Appleton (the corner of Walnut and 6th Street, just south of the Appleton Police Department and Justice Center).

FCEMF – FamilyLife Event

I am interested in hosting an “Art Of Marriage” DVD marriage event for the FCEMF. This would be a Friday evening and a Saturday event. I would be able to host this on Oct. 19-20, Oct 26-27 or Nov. 1-2. If these date don’t work we would have to look into 2013.

I would like to put this on the calendar but I need to hear from people to see if this is something they would be interested in. Please contact me so that I can plan accordingly. Let me know which dates work the best.

If anyone has question for my about this, please let me know.
