LONE STAR SANTAS TOY DRIVE -- Santa Bob and Christmas Carole want to invite you to donate toys to the Lone Star Santas Toy Drive. Lone Star Santas is delivering toys to children in Canton, Fruitvale, and Martins Mill in east Texas this month following the recent tornadoes there. Carole and I are going to Martins Mill on the June 24th and would like to take some toys with us. There will be a donation box in the hall outside Anniversary Classroom for collection (1st floor sanctuary). We need new, unwrapped toys for any age. Also, Carole and I will be accepting Walmart gift cards for $20 to deliver to the youth affected by the storms.

PATHWAY TO DISCIPLESHIP - Over the last year our pastors along with some lay leaders of our church joined with other congregations to participate in a year-long stewardship program by the Texas Methodist Foundation to learn how to foster healthy, significant, and effective discipleship practices in the local church. The end-product of this process is our Pathway to Discipleship! Initiative. The purpose of Pathway is to provide practical information and instruction to deepen the spiritual life of the members of Tyler Street Church and to empower and encourage them into faithful, joyful, and fruitful discipleship.
PROJECT HOPE is a holistic ministry that helps people look at all aspects of their lives. Together families and coaches focus on these 7 areas: family, faith, education, career, budget, health and personal issues. Together our goal is to break the cycle of poverty and help families be healthy, happy stronger Christians. We started over 3 years ago and have seen growth within ourselves, determination, happiness and successes. You may say, how can I help? Do I need something special? We need people willing to be coaches. A coach will receive some training, have some back up help when they need it and God watching over them. If you have about an hour a week to encourage and pray with someone else or know how to budget and are willing to guide someone in that area God needs you to volunteer to help his people. If you are interested, please contact Kathy Bennett at email@example.com.
