Looking for funds to help your ministry?

Consider applying for a UTO (United Thank Offering) grant. Any church that wants to submit an application must return it to the diocesan office no later than Friday, Feb. 10. The completed grant application form and a proposed project budget are required.

The focus for the 2017 United Thank Offering grants is The Jesus Movement – evangelism, reconciliation and following Jesus’ way of creating loving, liberating and life-giving relationships with God, each other and all creation. From among applications submitted, the diocese will select one to forward to the United Thank Offering board for possible funding.

UTO will consider applications that are for start-up costs for a new ministry, but not for the continuation of an ongoing ministry, unless there is a definite new direction added to the existing program. The form to apply for UTO grants, as well as other helpful information, is available online at http://www.episcopalchurch.org/utogrants.

Questions? Contact the Rev. Canon Torey Lightcap at tlightcap@episcopal-ks.org or (785) 235-9255.

Project Topeka

projecttopekaFebruary is Project Topeka month, when many churches and organizations supply food for our local food banks. Supplying food for the many families in need at Christmas time has depleted available items at many food banks. So please bring your non-perishable food items in the month of February to church. Basic items such as canned fruits and vegetables, soups, peanut butter, beans, noodles, mac and cheese, tuna, canned meat, and macaroni are good suggestions.
Project Topeka helps feed many people throughout the year. Your support is truly appreciated.
