The Rummerys are adopting! God placed adoption on our hearts about two years ago as a result of mission trips we took with our church in 2009 and 2010 to an orphanage in Peru. Well, to be honest, Cindy has had this on her heart since I took a trip to an orphanage in Ukraine in 1998, and it has taken me this long to open my heart to adoption! Read More Here

Curb-painting in Savoy Fundraiser!

  • Painting Addresses on Curbs Fundraiser
  • August 9, 20, 25--reply with dates you can help to
  • Raise money for the Rummery’s adoption AND serve residents of Savoy by helping to decrease emergency response times!
  • Two teams available—pick one. Training provided!

August 9, 5:30pm-8:15pm
August 20, 9:00am-4:30pm (we'll break for lunch! Help for half-day or whole-day)
August 25, 5:30pm-8:15pm

We feel this is a great way to serve because we can be a part of two blessings at one time! The funds we raise will help bring our child home, and we will be able to help families' homes be located by emergency workers in a time of crisis.

We need lots of help! Please join us in 1, 2, or all 3 of the dates planned. Come for all or part of any day. We have 2 different groups on each day that will be broken into teams of 2 or 3 people.

Group 1 – The Selling Team: These folks will be going up to doors in Savoy equipped with our Village permit as well as information on our fundraiser. They will take orders that will be filled by the painting teams just after the order is taken. They will be responsible for handling money.  If you can smile and interact with people, this is the team for you!

Group 2 – The Painting Team: These folks will be coming behind the Selling Team fulfilling the orders by painting the house numbers on the curbs out front using the kits that we will be providing.  If you're a whiz with a spray can and like to pay attention to details, this is the team for you!

We will have a short training session before we begin for the day/eve. Please share this service opportunity with your friends and give them our contact information.  The more teams, the more house curbs we can paint.

Thank you so much for your willing hearts!

P.S.  If you live in Savoy and would like your address number painted on your curb, let us know, and we'll send a team by your house!!
