Displays in the Annex

Welcome, everyone, to Mission Fest 2018. Please stay for lunch and conversation. While you’re in the annex, check out the mission related displays. There are buckets we hope to fill with cleaning supplies to be made available to folks whose homes have been damaged whenever and wherever the need should arise. There is a very specific list of supplies to go in the buckets. Donations of cash or of supplies will be welcomed. Feel free to take a copy of the supply list. Rev. Don Miller, known to many of us, is coordinating the local effort on behalf of Church World Service.
We have set out just a few “Alternate Christmas” displays. Please take a little time to browse the catalogs for Church World Service and for Heifer Project, which offer an opportunity to give specific gifts to folks in need around the world. You may designate your gift as an “alternate” present to someone on your shopping list. Your friend or loved one will be “gifted” with something that truly matters and does not add to the all too often overabundance of “stuff” too many of us have.
Also, there is a display from White Memorial Camp. Similar to the other missions, this is an opportunity to honor someone and give a gift that will benefit the camp. the difference here is that you may actually get to see or use your gift, since it will be close by.
We’ve had more displays in the past, but it seems folks may have been overwhelmed by all the choices. However, if you want to support other missions such as the Fuller Center for Housing or Trash Mountain Project, this can be arranged. Also, there is always a display furnished by the Gideons in a rack at the rear of the sanctuary; you can give a gift of a Bible in honor of any person or event.

Ph.D.!

Jill Wenderott received her Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Michigan (UM) this past August. Her research for the Ph.D. focused on soft, flexible materials for use in solar cells. She was also involved in international educational outreach while at UM, traveling to Monrovia, Liberia, in August 2017 with the UM Society of Women Engineers to implement an academic and professional development camp for undergraduate female engineering students at the University of Liberia. After finishing her degree at UM, Jill moved to Northwestern University in Evanston, IL to continue research as post-doctoral fellow in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering. Her research is still centered on materials for energy applications, now also including batteries and water-splitting cells.
