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.

Family Promise Help Needed

Hi everyone,

An update for you after a very full weekend of team-oriented home improvement:

Y’all are amazing!!  We can hardly believe the house we left this evening is the same house we arrived at on Saturday morning.  What incredible things can happen when people come together!  We are blessed and humbled by everyone’s contributions.  While there are a few things to wrap up over the next few days, we made enormous strides toward getting this house ready to receive a family.

All told, we had over 40 volunteers work on the house between the two days, and many others who donated or loaned kitchenware, linens, furniture, and construction materials.  A big shout-out to Home Depot for donating all of our paint, primer, and drywall supplies, to Jim & Nancy Coffin and to Donna Janks for providing lunches for both work days, and to the Central High School National Honor Society for providing 12 volunteers and doing most of our heavy lifting with furniture transport.

From our original needs list that went out a week ago, nearly everything has been taken care of – amazing!  We have discovered a few additional needs as we start to fine-tune.  Our hope is to get a family in the house next weekend if at all possible, so if you or members of your community are able to help with these please contact [email protected] or 307-433-4774 this week.

Here’s the list:
-one twin bed
-frame for a queen bed (we have a mattress but not the rest)
-kitchen trash can
-dish drying rack
-broom & dust pan
-welcome/walk-off mats for inside & outside front door
-mop
-night lights
-outlet plugs (the kind that cover an outlet for safety)
-kid-safe cabinet closure devices
-TV setup with VCR/DVD (doesn’t need to be fancy, would prefer if it’s not anything new or expensive)
-A couple pieces of large-ish and fairly neutral decor for the walls to make things a bit homier

We so appreciate all of your willingness to pitch in and help out, and we enjoyed getting to know many of you more and work alongside you this weekend.  Thanks for your care for our community and desire to help such an amazing and important organization.

All the best,

Joe & Sarah Evans
