What's new at The Grove

SMaRT 
Supporting Moms Raising Teenagers starts this Sunday night from 6-8 in Pastor Steve’s office at the East Hills campus. We will learn about the most current research on teenage brain development and how we blend that with Christian parenting. The first session is called, “You don’t understand.” If you are the mom of a teenager, please join us for laughs, support, and understanding from other moms who are on this same journey. We will continue to meet on the first and third Sundays.

Outreach
OUTREACH provides winter food boxes to local area secondary students and their families. Outreach commits to providing food for at least 10 families from each middle school and high school in Longview and Kelso. If you would like to help, contact Erin Lee, tylererinlee@gmail.com.

Bosnia Short Term Mission Trip
We are in the planning stage of a short term missions trip to Bosnia, our partner field, next summer. The current plan is to help with the English Camp July 20-27, 2018 and also do some projects with local church ministries through our missionary partners on the field, including Todd Dinius, Petula Myers, and Mark and Kathy Eikost. Some of us will help with churches in Zenica, Vares, or Doboj. The ministries could be with neighborhood children, a soup kitchen, and other outreach efforts. The skills of our team members can help to direct ministry opportunities as well. We need to start making plans for securing tickets and having team meetings, so if you have any interest in participating, contact steve@easthillsalliance.org.

Lower Columbia College
We are praying that God will mobilize some people to work with international students at LCC. Might that be you? Contact Jack Sande, sande@kalama.com or Shannon Gilman, shanngilman@icloud.com.

Needed
We need some old smart phones, iPhones, or iPod Touches for the kids ministry leaders to use for check-in and classroom communication. See Joleen Runnels.
