Dear SHOUT OUT Team Members,

This has been a year for celebrations and creative gathering. 

Between Kuriakos Gathers Together in April, our Anniversary Celebrations at Thanksgiving, and Run 4 Camp last month, we have raised $77k of our $91k goal! With Giving Tuesday approaching on November 30, we continue to welcome congregational or personal gifts in support of this community.

We are also offering ways to support your congregation. We would love to visit for a Camp Sunday this winter and spring, and host a Day Camp or send a staff Service Team next summer. And, have a look on our website for lots of virtual resources to support your congregation and members!

We appreciate your partnership in ministry.


Paul Kopjar
Assistant Director
