Congratulations to Karissa Heckens who will be doing a 10-week internship here at Elkhorn Hills this summer!
During the internship, she will be going on the Middle High Mission Trip, leading worship and preaching, exploring summer ministries for college-age folks, attending Annual Conference in Wichita and the Young Preacher’s Festival in Kansas City.
We received a $2,000 Culture of Call Grant from our Great Plains Conference to help make it all possible.
Thank you to the Staff-Parish Relations Committee for offering their support during the planning phase.
About Culture of Call Grants
Creating a Culture of Call means that the behaviors, beliefs and attitudes of your congregation/community readily supports the members of the community to identify and explore a call by God to serve God as a lay, licensed, or ordained person. Not everyone who feels a call will work “in ministry” for a church, but as everyone seeks to live out his or her faith more deeply, we pray that everyone will consider their work in the world, and even their interactions with other people will be an opportunity to live out God’s call.
The Culture of Call grant was designed to provide churches, campus ministries, and United Methodist organizations in the Great Plains UMC with resources to fuel their imaginations in creating opportunities to cultivate a Culture of Call.
Grants will be awarded in the range of $500 – $2,000.
