Missionary Christmas in September
Each year we collect a special offering aimed to bless the missionaries we support and give them some extra money to use in whatever way they like. Donations will be accepted for the next 4 weeks. There are envelopes in the foyer on the resources tables or you can place it in the offering plate marked “Christmas.”
Pastor Matt’s Prayer Retreat
This Tuesday Pastor Matt will be devoting the day to praying for our Lanse Free family. He would love to specifically pray for you and your family’s needs. Please fill out the orange prayer card and drop it in an offering plate on your way out today.
Our church will once again participate in the OCC Shoebox campaign this year. With school supplies on sale, now is a great time to pick up some items in preparation for packing a shoebox to bless a needy child.
