March Campus Update

What an amazing month the development team experienced on the Phone Campaign Trail!  A big shout out to all our donors and volunteers who graciously gave their time, financial support and prayers.  Thank you to the following churches that partnered with us during the 2024 Phone Campaign:  Waterford Church of Christ, West Chicago Church of Christ, LaPorte Church of Christ, Wheatfield Church of Christ, Naperville Church of Christ, Northwest Church of Christ, LaGrange Church of Christ and Park Forest Church of Christ.  We are in the process of finalizing our numbers for the Phone Campaign and will have this information available in the next Telegram.

The residents enjoyed time off this week for Spring Break.  Some of our kids had the opportunity to go home for visits with their families.   Thank you to Cub Scout Pack 995 and Currant Road Church of Christ for making Easter baskets for the kids.  The kids were ecstatic to receive the baskets.  We are never too old to enjoy Easter baskets.  Thank you for thinking of our kids.

As we celebrate Easter, we remember Jesus’s death on the cross for the forgiveness of our sins and his resurrection from the dead.  Our kids learn Jesus’s teachings at school during daily devotions, at Bible Study on Wednesday nights, and Bible Study and Worship Services on Sunday mornings.  At Shults-Lewis, we are planting the seeds in each of these kids daily with the hope that these seeds will grow and each child will one day have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 3:6-9)

In the next four months, we will be having youth groups on campus from DeMotte Christian School, East Hill Church of Christ, Wheeler Road Church of Christ and Naperville Church of Christ.  We are excited to have the kids here to work and interact with our residents and staff.  What a blessing they are to Shults-Lewis!
