  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


"A WEEK LATER  HIS DISCIPLES WERE IN THE HOUSE AGAIN, AND THOMAS WAS WITH THEM. THOUGH THE DOORS WERE LOCKED, JESUS CAME AND STOOD AMONG THEM AND SAID: "PEACE BE WITH YOU". THEN HE SAID TO THOMAS, "PUT YOUR FINGER HERE: SEE MY HANDS. REACH OUT YOUR HAND AND PUT IT INTO MY SIDE. STOP DOUBTING AND BELIEVE". THOMAS SAID TO HIM, "MY LORD AND MY GOD!". THEN JESUS TOLD HIM," BECAUSE  YOU HAVE SEEN ME, YOU HAVE BELIEVED. BLESSED ARE THOSE WHO  HAVE NOT SEEN AND YET HAVE BELIEVED".  JOHN 20:26=29 NIV


                             
CHRIST HAS RISEN!!! WE ARE FORGIVEN!!!
