  Ministry of Missions


    The Ministry of Missions is asking you to donate any "gently used household items" that would help foster children who have turned 18 and forced to live on their own get started. Think of what you would need to set up housekeeping in your first apartment. 

When a child ages out of the Foster Care program at 18 years they are on their own! They have to furnish their own apartment among other "adult" things they may not be ready for.

Please bring these items to the Church Fellowship Hall until September 1, 2013 and they will be delivered to the Gaston Country Foster Care.  


         THANK YOU

"The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the
work of his hands.  day after day they pour forth speech; night
after night they reveal knowledge.  They have no speech, they
use no words; no sound is heard from them.  yet their voice goes
out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world."

ps. 19:1-4  niv.


"IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE WORD, AND THE WORD WAS WITH GOD, AND THE WORD WAS GOD. HE WAS WITH GOD IN THE BEGINNING.
THROUGH HIM ALL THINGS WERE MADE; WITHOUT HIM NOTHING WAS
MADE THAT HAS BEEN MADE. IN HIM WAS LIFE AND THAT LIFE WAS THE
LIGHT OF ALL MANKIND. THE LIGHT SHINES IN THE DARKNESS, AND THE
DARKNESS HAS NOT OVERCOME IT."  JOHN 1: 1-5  NIV.

"WHAT THEN, SHALL WE SAY IN RESPONSE TO THESE THINGS? IF GOD IS
FOR US, WHO CAN BE AGAINST US? HE WHO DID NOT SPARE HIS OWN SON, BUT GAVE HIM UP FOR US ALL--HOW WILL HE NOT ALSO, ALONG WITH HIM, GRACIOUSLY GIVE US ALL THINGS?" ROMANS 8:31-32 NIV


"FOR UNTO US A CHILD IS BORN, UNTO US A CHILD IS GIVEN, AND THE GOVERNMENT WILL BE ON HIS SHOULDERS. AND HE WILL BE CALLED WONDERFUL COUNSELOR, MIGHTY GOD, EVERLASTING FATHER, PRINCE OF PEACE. OF THE GREATNESS OF HIS GOVERNMENT AND PEACE, THERE WILL BE NO END. HE WILL REIGN ON DAVID'S THRONE AND OVER HIS KINGDOM, ESTABLISHING AND UPHOLDING IT WITH JUSTICE AND RIGHTEOUSNESS FROM THAT TIME ON AND FOREVER. THE ZEAL OF THE LORD ALMIGHTY WILL ACCOMPLISH THIS." ISAIAH 9:6-7 NIV

"AND THERE WERE SHEPHERDS LIVING OUT IN THE FIELDS NEARBY, KEEPING WATCH OVER THEIR FLOCKS BY NIGHT. AN ANGEL OF THE LORD APPEARED TO THEM. "DO NOT BE AFRAID, I BRING YOU GOOD NEWS  THAT WILL CAUSE GREAT JOY FOR ALL THE PEOPLE. TODAY IN THE TOWN OF DAVID A SAVIOR HAS BORN TO YOU; HE IS THE MESSIAH, THE LORD. THIS WILL BE A SIGN TO YOU: YOU WILL  FIND A BABY WRAPPED IN CLOTHS AND LYING IN A MANGER."" SUDDENLY  A GREAT COMPANY OF THE HEAVENLY HOST APPEARED WITH THE ANGEL, PRAISING GOD AND SAYING. "GLORY TO GOD IN THE HIGHEST HEAVEN AND ON EARTH PEACE TO THOSE ON WHOM HIS FAVOR RESTS".  LUKE 2: 8-14 NIV
