  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.

PRAYER SHAWL MINISTRY (HELD ON MON. 16TH THIS MONTH)

Please join us the third WEDNSDAY of each month at 6 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall to crochet or knit a prayer shawl. We will teach you if you do not know how to crochet or knit. Have you ever had one of those days where you just needed a hug? We've all been there ourselves, and we also have those friends who need a hug more than we do. If you're looking for a special project to make for a friend in need, now is the time to discover the "Prayer Shawl Ministry". A Prayer Shawl is the greatest gift you can give someone who is having a tough time in life or someone who is recovering from a serious surgery or unfortunate illness and they just need a "pick me up".  Let's share God's love in hug.
