Samaritan’s Purse: As a church family we have decided to participate in Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child beginning in March! Operation Christmas Child, uses gift-filled shoe boxes to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world. The mission of this project is, “In the hands of local churches, every gift-filled shoe box is a powerful tool for evangelism and discipleship; transforming the lives of children and their families around the world through the Good News of Jesus Christ!” It may seem early to be planning a Christmas outreach, but we are going to have the shoe boxes available all year so that when you happen to find a phenomenal sale on an item for a child, we can just pop it in a box and have it ready to go!! We are going to start early this year gathering supplies to pack our 2017 Operation Christmas child boxes. Every month we will be requesting a new item.

Children's Church

v  In Children’s’ Church this year we are going to learn about the New Testament. We will start next week with Matthew! They all worked very hard last year learning all about the Old Testament of the Bible from Genesis to Proverbs. When you see a child ask them to recite those books of the Bible, their proficiency and hard work is amazing!
