The church still needs your financial donations. We know for some of you, this is a difficult time financially. However, if you can still make a financial contribution, please either mail a check to the church or donate online:  http://www.cheyennegraceumc.com/giving/.  You can also Text-to-Give by texting the dollar amount to 307-209-9908. It should walk you through the process.

Pam Pallak is coordinating drivers who can help deliver items to those who are homebound.

Our church has a Member Aid fund. If you or someone in the church needs assistance, please contact Rev. Laura.

Family Promise is still helping families in this difficult time.  Our Family Promise is currently housing up to 3 families in local hotels.  They need support in the following ways, as shared by Lori Kempter, Executive Director:

  • Be kind & pray.  During this difficult time, Family Promise cannot underestimate the importance and impact of simply being kind to one another and praying for our neighbors.
  • Give supply donations. They are receiving donations of the following: milk, eggs, meat, paper products, baby wipes, cleaning supplies, fast food gift cards, grocery gift cards, and gas gift cards. Call the Family Promise office to arrange dropping off donations (307-772-8770).
  • Give financially. This transition is increasing costs for Family Promise of Cheyenne. Motel rooms cost $700 per week/per family. Housing 3 families for a minimum of 2-3 weeks costs $4,200-6,000. Donations can be made on the website: www.FamilyPromiseofCheyenne.org or mail to Family Promise of Cheyenne, 2950 Spruce Drive, Cheyenne WY 82001.
