Spring 2019 - Teacher Blessings
When we started Encounter, we purposed in our hearts to be a blessing at Philip Reilly Elementary School. A very simple way that we’ve done that is through teacher blessings. Every single Sunday one of you signs-up to bring a treat for 50 staff and volunteers here at Philip Reilly. It can be something as simple as a snack or a small gift. The point is just to make the staff here feel loved, cared for and cherished. Thank you for doing this so well week after week. Sign-up here
Did you know we have a youth group that meets the first Sunday of the month for Grades 6 - 12? Go to EncounterYouth.Group for more information.
