Children’s Ministries is sponsoring a “March Merriness” contest for their volunteers. During this month, if you serve at GI Free on Sunday mornings or Wednesday evenings in the Nursery, with Children’s Church, Sunday School, Rock Solid or Solid Life, you are eligible to enter the contest. Simply invite a friend who regularly attends GI Free (but who does not serve in one of the areas listed above) to be your guest as you serve in one of these five ministries. You and your guest will both be entered in a drawing. At the end of March, the names of two volunteers and two guests will be drawn. Each person will receive a $75 gift certificate to the Grand Island restaurant of their choice. You can enter as often as you serve and bring a different friend with  you.
