TRAINING on CPR/AED
There were thirty adults and young adults who were trained how to perform CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) and the use of the AED (Automated External Defibrillator) which is located in the Contemporary Worship Center. Because of our partnership with the Boy Scouts, the cost was only $5 per person and the certification is good for two years.

SOME ARE CALLED, SOME ARE SENT
At Cokes Chapel, we are all called! God has something for each of us to do to build up the Kingdom of God. We are blessed with connections to two very special couples who have been called to serve beyond their own community, into the world.

Allie and David Houles have committed to a five-year term at Blessing Home in Pattaya in Thailand. Allie is the daughter of Jerri and Mickey Statham and attended Cokes Chapel as a child.

Amanda and Matt Hadden are serving the Oglala Lakota people in South Dakota. Amanda is the granddaughter of Sandy and Pete Cavender.

Your Ad Council recently approved our plan to support both couples this year. Since their funding is not a budgeted expense, Outreach/Mission has plans for some fundraising events to raise the pledged amount. Outreach is hosting a dinner/silent auction on August 11th to kick-off funding the Houles’ and Hadden’s. Mark your calendars, and stay tuned for more opportunities to give your support.

 
ITEMS STILL NEEDED FOR THE FOOD PANTRY
Canned mixed fruit, peaches, pears, etc.

COMING SOON…

SAVE THE DATE
First Annual Missions Dinner and Silent Auction is planned for August 11TH to kick off funding our two couples. Mark your calendars, and then stay tuned for more opportunities to give your support.

We are not all called to go, but we can send these special folks in the name of Cokes to do this holy work. Pray now, for them, for us as we begin our fundraising to support them. Questions? Contact Betsy Bagley: ebbagley@gmail.com.
