Scripture & Prayer Requests

1a
Jeremiah 31:31-34


Amplified Bible (AMP)


31 “Behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord, “when I will make a new covenant with the [a]house of Israel (the Northern Kingdom) and with the house of Judah (the Southern Kingdom),
32 not like the covenant which I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, although I was a husband to them,” says the Lord.
33 “But this is the covenant which I will make with the house of Israel after those days,” says the Lord, “I will put My law within them, and I will write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they will be My people.
34 And each man will no longer teach his neighbor and his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they will all know Me [through personal experience], from the least of them to the greatest,” says the Lord. “For I will forgive their wickedness, and I will no longer remember their sin.”

Subject: Building Operations Technician

Stairstep Site Coordinators,
I’d like your help in getting out the word of a great new training opportunity. This is for the new Building Operations Technician pathway that Hennepin County has developed with our partners MCTC and PPL.
It is a nine-month program where participants can earn 11.5 credits tuition free. Candidates must have a high school diploma or GED and six months work experience in facilities or maintenance.
The county is an employer partner for this training and is being joined by the University of Minnesota, State Department of Administration, Fairview Health Services, PPL and Johnson Controls as additional employer partners.
It is our goal to have residents from North Minneapolis fill at least 10 of the 35 available slots for this tuition-free training. 
In a nutshell:
  • FREE training program that leads to jobs paying $19 to $38 an hour right now at Twin Cities employers
  • Hands-on training, including the basics of electric circuits and motors, HVAC, plumbing, using trade tools, and more.
  • Opportunity to job shadow a building operations professional on the job
  • Complete the program and you’ll be prepared to take the Minnesota Special Engineer Boiler Operator’s License Exam
  • Eligible for 11.5 credits from MCTC to get a head start on future academic and professional goals.
Find out more at one-hour information sessions held every Monday morning at 9 am at the PPL Learning Center, 1925 Chicago Avenue, Minneapolis.
The training begins February 2, 2016.
For more information about Career Connections, training programsand Hennepin County, visit hennepin.us/jobs/career-connections or call 612-348-7473.
