Resources

“Textables”/email “cut-and-paste” for sharing the mission and ministry of Intermountain:


Hi there! I just wanted to share this great devotional I picked up from Rev. Chris Haughee at Intermountain. I think it would make a great resource for this fall. Let me know if you’d like a copy of the book and I’ll have them send you one. Here’s an article about “Hope for Healing” if you want to know more: https://www.pacesconnection.com/g/faith-based-connection/blog/514314756222638857


Have you seen this great trauma sensitive ministry handout from Intermountain… a checklist for churches to consider? Intermountain is a great resource for the church! Check it out: http://www.intermountainministry.org/wp-content/uploads/2022/07/MINISTRY-handout-Checklist-for-Trauma-sensitive-interactions.pdf


The chaplain at Intermountain, UMC pastor Sami Pack-Toner, recently wrote a wonderful article about ‘trail magic’ and her experience ministering to the children. I’d love to connect with you soon about my passion for Intermountain… let me know when you have some time. For now, here’s a link to Sami’s article: https://helenair.com/news/local/sami-pack-toner-column-the-trail-magic-we-are-missing/article_e254e91b-b412-5df6-87aa-97bf686cfda0.html?fbclid=IwAR2fGXtxalrS5E7GeGmyqcfqb6NJZ_FyZGxIVWU679qaaTmppXVLsJqsx28


I just got a copy of a thirty-day devotional I think would be great for the church! Here’s What UMC Bishop Karen said about it: “In Hope for Healing, Chris Haughee invites the reader to take a 30-day journey to draw closer to God through scripture and the lives of the young people and families served by Intermountain. Challenge and comfort combine to bring us all to a place of healing and hope!” Want me to get you a copy?



I am sort of marveling at the resources Intermountain has for the church! I especially like this 8-week Bible Study on trauma-informed ministry called “Bruised Reeds and Smoldering Wicks.” Let’s talk about how we can use it at the church soon… maybe a small group study, adult Christian education, or a sermon series even? Talk to you soon. https://www.intermountainministry.org/chaplain-chris-curriculum-bruised-reeds-smoldering-wicks-is-now-bigger-and-better/


For the price of a tank of gas, I chose to make a difference in the lives of the children and families Intermountain serves. I just learned how to become a “Caring Friend,” and I committed to $5/month… I am thinking that once I share with you why I support Intermountain, you’ll want to join me, too. Or, if you want to sign up right now… here’s the sign up form online (make sure you click the box for monthly giving!): https://intermountain.givingfuel.com/donate


I am thinking we should make Intermountain the mission focus for a month this fall. They have this great program called “Change for Children,” with materials for object lessons, individual devotions, a corresponding curriculum… all sorts of things! How many cans should we request for the church? I am thinking “National Adoption Month” in November could be a great time to do this, or maybe Advent… Let me know what you think ASAP so I can request the materials! Here’s a “tip sheet” to get the creative juices flowing: http://www.intermountainministry.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/Change-Can-Instruction-Guide-and-Tip-sheet.pdf
