THANKS FROM MEREDITH! Marion Burtt’s granddaughter Meredith Eldridge was one of the 13 recipients (along with brother Max) of our church’s Sunset Lake Scholarship Fund, which was generously supplied by our Children’s Offering earlier this year. In a handwritten note Meredith writes: “Dear Bellevue Church: Thank you sooooooo much for sending me to Sunset Lake. I enjoyed it so much. I enjoyed horsemanship, and ATVs, and banana boat, and waterfront, and everything else. I want to thank you for paying for Sunset Lake, and contributing to this amazing summer camp. It was the best week of my life and I loved it. Thank you.” (Mom Hilary says, “Meredith talks about it all year long. It is her favorite place.”)
WORRIED ABOUT FINANCES but want your child to have a Christian education? Both Kirkland Seventh-day Adventist School (KSDA) and Puget Sound Adventist Academy (PSAA) have scholarship programs, which are additionally enhanced by our own congregation for children of Bellevue church members. Contact KSDA (www.ksdaschool.org) or PSAA (www.psaa.org) or call 425-822-7554, for encouraging information and answers to your questions. For the next several months our Children’s Offering will fund this local assistance amount.
“THE APPEARING!” On October 11 – 14 we’re presenting Shawn Boonstra’s “The Appearing,” a dramatic, brand-new 5-part video series which intelligently and graciously shares timely truth about the Second Coming. Start thinking and praying about someone you’d like to invite! – Pastor Maylan
