The Portage Police Department is working with Calumet College of St. Joseph to develop a Threat Assessment of Portage. As a part of that process, Calumet College has designed 3 surveys, one for the junior high and high school students, one for Portage residents and one for those who work in Portage. The Portage School System was kind enough to help us administer the student surveys. We are now faced with distributing the Business and Resident surveys.
The Business survey...

The YMCA's Preschool is different that other preschools because they are mission driven. We are able to reach out to families who are less fortunate and need the help through our scholarship program.

We build bonds with not only the child but with the families.

As strange as it may seem, military metaphors are very common among Christians. Even though they follow the one who said, “Blessed are the peacemakers,” the Christian vocabulary includes terms like “spiritual warfare” and “prayer warriors.”
However, this imagery is not a recent development. The same Jesus who called His followers to be peacemakers also said that He Himself did not come to bring peace but, rather, a sword (Matthew 10:34). In other words, Jesus anticipated that there would be sharp division, even within families, between those who believe in Him and those who don’t. Jesus also warned the church of first century Pergamum that He would war against them if they didn’t repent of their sins (Revelation 2:16).
On Friday, June 4, the Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) honored its dedicated volunteers during their Annual Spring Recognition Breakfast at Strongbow Inn in Valparaiso. Over 150 senior volunteers were recognized at this annual event that has been taking place for over 10 years. According to Director, Joyce Bolin, “We don’t recognize one or two volunteers. We honor them all and make it clear that they are all doing important work in the community.” J. Jay Brooks performed during the breakfast.
