Good Samaritan Fund
As people in our congregation and community continue to suffer the impact of our recent recession, our congregation has a unique opportunity to care for its neighbors. If you are in need of assistance because of a recent job loss or other financial struggles, please know that you can apply to the EKLC Good Samaritan Fund for financial assistance. If you are a family who would like to help out people who are struggling, but you haven't quite figured out how, consider making a gift to the Good Samaritan Fund. You will know that the money is being used to help people buy food and gas, cover housing expenses, or bring relief from high medical bills and other expenses.

The Good Samaritan Fund is currently very low on funds. We invite regular and substantial gifts to the fund in order to continue to care for our neighbors in need.

Missionaries John & Amy Lindstrom
February 2015 Newsletter
"There has never been much interest among Kapin young people in their Bible translation. A few years ago we tried to find someone to help Pastor Roy with entering his work into the computer. For months we were told that none of the young people were interested in helping unless they were well paid for their work. Finally we found Wilson, a single 24 year old man who wanted to help and wasn’t concerned about getting paid a lot to do it." Click here to read the complete article and see some great pictures!

Family Focus May 2015 Newsletter
Welcome spring!  Family focus is having a couple of events to celebrate spring. Come visit us at CAP touch a truck where we will have a booth. We will have another drawing to win tickets to Schusters play farm in the fall. In addition, there will be coupons for people to go down to Bella's the new floral shop in Cambridge and make a floral arrangement for someone special (maybe a mom, hint hint).

On Sunday May 3rd we hope to offer a Make a Gift Event from 1-3 pm hosted by family focus.  This will be a low cost project for kids and adults that can be made and given to someone special. An flyer will be sent for this event as more details become available.
Family focus is planning service projects for our group. Currently we have two projects in the works. First are planning to help out the School gardens during the summer months.  If you love watching a garden grow, pulling weeds and in general have a green thumb we would love your help.
Our second service project will be helping the library move into their new space.  We do not know how we will be needed, but we know it will be a wonderful experience.
Family focus is looking for more service projects that we can complete as a family with our children helping. If you have a project, a garden or yard to tend, a school room to clean something that needs a messy paint job, maybe we can lend a hand.
Come walk with us in the Memorial Day Parade.  It is always fun for the kids! A flyer will be sent for this event as more details become available.
To end we would like to invite you to an ice cream social on the last day of school June 5th from 3:15 pm to 4:30 pm. At the west side park.  It is a great time to talk with parents and friends before summer gets out and the kids always have plenty of energy. We will be sending out a reminder for this event.
If you are interested in more info for any of our events, Family Focus of Southern Wisconsin can be contacted  in several ways.  Phone 608-561-1301. Facebook: Family Focus of Southern Wisconsin.
