Dear Phil,

 

For your summer plans, which I hope are already off to a great start for you and your family, I want to bring to your attention two items related to our City on the Hill Youth Leadership and Worldview conference on July 23-29.

 

First, we still have some openings available for this year's conference experience. It's amazing how often students describe their time at City on the Hill (COTH) as "life-changing" and we want to help equip as many students as we can through this experience. Any help you can be this week in recruiting attendees would be greatly appreciated.

 

The deadline to apply is this Friday, June 30. For any teens age 15-18 interested in attending, click here for your applicationAnd please don't let the cost of tuition get in the way of attending - please be encouraged to contact our office as we have some scholarship assistance available.

 

To learn more about City on the Hill or to share this experience with others, use our online brochure at pafamily.org/cothbrochure.

 

Second, each year at City on the Hill, we host a variety of top worldview speakers in the nation. Friends and supporters often comment to us, "I wish I could attend COTH and hear those great speakers!"

 

Although you must be a high-school teenager to attend the week-long camp, we have opened one session for you to hear for yourself one of the excellent speakers we are bringing to COTH this year. As a ministry partner, you are cordially invited to attend this event:

 

Tuesday, July 25th | Lancaster Bible College

Communism, Socialism and Progressivism:

What you need to know and won't learn in school

 

Dr. Paul KengorSpeaker: Dr. Paul Kengor – Best-selling author, executive director of The Center for Vision and Values, and Professor of Political Science, Grove City College.

 

Details: Tuesday, July 25, 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm. Teague Learning Commons, Lancaster Bible College

 

Summary: Communists and progressives have been at work for almost two centuries to destroy the family and marriage. Now, however, they have found a key for advancing their vision in the redefinition of marriage. Dr. Paul Kengor, internationally recognized expert on communism and progressivism, discusses his book Takedown: From Communists and Progressives, How the Left has Sabotaged Family and Marriage. He carefully exposes the influential forces driving America towards a radically different family structure.

 

Space is extremely limited for this event. Please RSVP to Carolyn at cokum@pafamily.org or call (717) 545-0600.

 

Thanks for considering these requests. City on the Hill always inspires me, and our whole team, as we interact with these teens from across Pennsylvania and engage on some of the most important topics facing the world today.

 

Your prayers are also welcomed for this year's conference. And thank you for your support of PA Family Institute, which helps to have opportunities like City on the Hill available for teens and helping to equip and engage the next generation.

 

Take care,

Michael Geer

Fwd: Update on the HMS Nehemiah Project Fund


---------- Forwarded message ----------

Subject: Update on the HMS Nehemiah Project Fund
To: info@gehmanmennonitechurch.org


Thank you Businesses and Individuals for Shaping Lives Through Your Partnership & Support!
June 21, 2017
Thanks for your Support!
We are within $14,000 of $131,000 Goal 
Fiscal Year-End is June 30

Dear HMS parents, ,

Thanks for investing in students' lives to help them live and learn God's purposes!  
HMS students serve in the community each spring to assist with grounds maintenance and other service projects at local organizations.

As we near the conclusion of the school budget year on June 30, I am happy to report that we met a special gift challenge of $10,000 this month from a friend of the school. Those gifts in addition to many others leaves our Nehemiah Project Fund balance at $117,057.

Are you able to help us close the gap on the final $14,000 to meet the Nehemiah Project Goal of $131,000 before June 30?
  
So many have already joined us this year, and maybe you have too.  We value your prayers for God's provision and we also pray that God will continue to lead families and their children to HMS who desire and need the kind of Christ-centered and child-focused education HMS has to offer.  

I also want to acknowledge and express appreciation for many other ways that you and others have given to HMS.  In addition to tax deductible gifts of cash and appreciated assets, such as stock and mutual fund shares or real estate, our students have loved the times when the adults in their lives spent time with them in class or at special programs.  Time is an irreplaceable investment into the future of our young people!  Thanks to those who shared in that way too! 

Our strong community ensures that while our program continues to grow and develop, our Christian commitment and faith values remain steadfast.  We will begin our high school program this coming year and ask for your prayers as we take this step of faith and obedience to God's leading.  Thank you for continuing to walk with us as we seek to be faithful to God's mission before us at HMS.
 
Gratefully yours, 
Jody Fausnight
Director of Advancement

Where Partnerships Matter
The Ways Businesses Help Change Lives
Dear HMS parents, ,

 Golfers at the 2017
Friends of HMS Golf Tournament.
Thanks to All Golfers and
Sponsors who joined Us!
    

Last Tuesday was hot and sunny on the beautiful slopes of the private LedgeRock Golf Club in Mohnton, PA. Despite the heat, our generous golfers and sponsors helped us raise over $13,000 toward student and scholarship programs at HMS!
 

EITC Renewal Window Open til June 30!

HMS students serve in the community each spring to assist with grounds maintenance and other service projects at local organizations.
 
The Educational Improvement Tax Credit program (EITC) or its companion, the Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit program (OSTC), are two great ways to support school choice in Pennsylvania. Business gifts through these programs fund scholarships for more than half the students at HMS. 
  
To renew participation,  you can re-apply online through June 30
at the
DCED website.  

New participants should submit applications on July 3, 2017.

See this instructions fact sheet for more program and application information.  Your CPA should already be familiar with these popular tax credit programs, but if not, feel free to contact me for assistance.

Thanks for your consideration of this and other creative options that enable Hinkletown Mennonite School to impact student lives and their futures!

 
Gratefully yours, 
Jody Fausnight
Director of Advancement

Nehemiah Project Fund Update

In addition to the Nehemiah Project Fund, our annual golf outing, fundraisers and auction help keep tuition affordable at HMS. All gifts are tax-deductible.
Thanks to all who have given this year toward our Nehemiah Project Fund of $131,000!  We still have $14,000 outstanding to reach our goal before fiscal year-end on June 30.  We invite you to consider a gift if you have not already done so.

As an encouragement, a friend of the school was creative in offering a $5,000 gift if we raised $10,000 of new money in June.  Thanks to those who responded recently, we met the $10,000 amount on June 19, giving a positive boost toward our overall goal! 

HMS depends on the generosity of friends and supporters to help keep education affordable for families who value a small school community and strong program that applies faith and learning to life.

Venture Program Offers Unique Partnership Opportunities
 
The HMS Venture Program, for grades 9-12 students, will continue the faith-based, hands-on and individualized instruction that HMS is known for, plus much more! 

Missions trips, internships and the chance to study at your own pace are also included in a program that will help students prepare for vocational and/or college placements.  
 
Businesses interested in learning more about partnerships or job shadowing and internship student placements, contact Jody Fausnight, Director of Advancement (jfausnight@hmsk8.org or 717-354-7100 x1005) or Megan Ament, Venture Program Coordinator (mament@hmsk8.org or 717-354-7100).
