March was an exciting month in Children’s Ministries as we prepare for the celebration of Easter. We have been collecting toothbrushes to send along on the mission trip to Tochimizolco, Mexico and continue to look for ways to support Project Hope, our clean water project in Liberia. We hosted a family potluck and Jerusalem Marketplace as a way for families to experience Holy week in a hands-on way. We are thankful to everyone who volunteered their time to work in our Marketplace. Watch the video recap here.
