Fund Raiser for Julius Stephenson

We want to tell you about one of the bravest 10-year-old boys we know, Julius Stevenson…

At two and a half years old, Julius was diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML).  He has undergone countless (and we do mean countless) treatments, procedures, and tests.  His positivity, strength, courage, bravery, and love for the Lord are inspiring.  Recently his chemotherapy drugs have stopped working.  As a result, Julius is in need of a bone marrow transplant.

Amazingly, his younger sister Simone is a perfect match and will bravely and selflessly donate her bone marrow to her beloved brother.  Simone matches her brother’s bravery, strength, and courage in every way.  Julius and Simone are both students in the West Allegheny School District as well as members of The Rock.

There are two fundraisers available for anyone who would like to help out…  First, McKee Elementary is selling “Julius Strong” t-shirts for $10. There will be order forms at the church.  Orders will be due by THIS Sunday.  It is CASH ONLY and we will need to collect order forms and money at the same time.

Second, Simone’s Kindergarten teacher who also taught Julius, “Miss C,” has organized a CycleGives ride on May 7 at 12:00pm at@cyclebar_robinson.  Angie (Julius and Simone’s mom) will be participating in the ride.

A PayPal account has been setup for the family’s expenses during Julius’s hospitalization.  So if you would like to just make a donation, please let Miss Kara know and we will provide you with the information.

Please be praying for the Stevensons during this time. They are near and dear to our heart.

Secret Pals

This coming Sunday, May 1, at 2:00 PM is our Secret Pal Revelation Party.  Anyone who has been a Secret Pal or wants to be one next year is welcome to join.  We remember our Pals through gifts and cards throughout the year and then on May 1 we will find out who our Pal was for the year and draw names for the next year.  If you would be interested in being a Secret Pal, talk or text Barb at 412-327-6545 or come on May 1 at 2:00 and join us in our Revelation.  Pals don’t forget to RSVP to Barb with what you are planning on bringing to eat!

Days For Girls Update and Meeting Dates

Below is a snapshot from a recent Days for Girls update:

“In early April DfG kits were sent to Poland for the Ukrainian refugees.  On April 14 I received this email from DT Care: “’es!  The kits are in Poland waiting to be transported into Ukraine.  We received the update last night that these goods will move from Poland to Odessa for distribution, but some will be moved east to Dnipro and Zaporozhye.  The DfG Trainers are really looking forward to getting started!  Thank you for your amazing efforts to coordinate and sew so many kits'”
