AROUND THE DANUBE FAMILY—MAKING CONNECTIONS , May 11, 2017

Updated June 8, 2017

New Pastor! On June 4 Rich Millhouse was officially announced as the elders choice for our new Danube pastor, beginning September 1, 2017. Now the congregation has 15 days to give input and ask questions. Please contact Steve Jantz, sjantz16@gmail.com.

Bikás Park Picnic, Sunday, June 11. Bring your lunch, blankets, chairs, games and join us for fellowship after the service under the three bulls.

Mark your calendars for the Danube All-Church Retreat November 3-5, 2017!!

The next Danube Men’s outing will involve learning how to play a new sport!... Namely disc golf!! It plays just like golf, except you have discs to throw instead of golf balls to hit and elevated baskets to aim for instead of holes in the ground. To check it out, look at this link, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ECt84O42Myk or for some video of the pros go here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AHVF5cFDOEU .
We will car pool from Budapest at 11am on Saturday the 17th of June. When we arrive at the Word of Life campus around noon we will enjoy the sack lunch which you have brought for yourself and then I will teach you the sport and we will practice a bit. Then we will tee off in groups of 4 and play a couple of rounds together. The discs will be provided by Word of Life along with the free use of their 9 basket course! We will return home between 15:30 and 16:30.
Please sign up for this next exciting event with Lee Cross (lcrossjr@vt.edu) on Sunday at the Welcome Table or here at this google sheet link: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1zvUhNDaX4grAGJKTSgckesXkmQWIQKyS...
Because of discs, space is limited to the first 14 guys! Sign up NOW!

Ever wanted to see the Holy Land? Oct 24-Nov. 2017 may be the trip for you? Seven Danube attendees have already signed to tour Israel and you can join them by contacting Jeff Allen, jeffrie43@icloud.com, by July 2. The group is limited to 20.

For Women Only-- "Developing a Discerning Heart"--Have you ever wondered why you get angry or fearful at little things? Do you have a recurring sin that keeps you discouraged every time you commit it? Do you wish you could solve some of your family of origin questions? This course will encourage you in answering these questions and more with in depth scripture in an interactive, small group setting. Men and women both have been encouraged by the depth of change resulting from this intensive course. You'll get to know God in a deeper way too! The group is limited to 8-10.

Dates: Sept. 15-17 and Sept. 29-October 1, 2017. Deadline to register: June 15. Contact Person: Barbara Allen, barb.allen85@gmail.com

URGENT REFUGEE NEEDS: The women are willing to do housecleaning and babysitting, and the men are happy to paint, do landscaping, lawn mowing, etc. If you could help by employing them weekly or more often, they would be very appreciative. Please contact Chris Alexander, calexander@icsbudapest.org for names and telephone numbers. It would be helpful if you could give them at least HUF 2000 (or more if possible per hour) for their work. Thank you for praying for this need, too! Also, If you know of job placement or housing assistance organizations that we could get in contact with, that would be very helpful. Please send the information to Chris.
