February was a busy month in children’s ministry. Our Sunday school lessons focused on the teachings and parables of Jesus where we learned the importance of loving our neighbor and putting others’ needs before our own. Our BeTween group put those lessons into action raising money for Souper Bowl of Caring, making lunches to support our Habitat for Humanity build team, making 40 agape bags to serve those in need in our community, and assembling snack packs for the Mended Little Hearts families. We also hosted a church wide picnic that was fun for the whole
family. Congratulations to Paige and Blake Notbohm, our Bake-off Winners for 2019.
Thank you for your support of the Parable of Talents. Over 30 children showcased their Talents to raise $883 to help support Project Hope, our 2019 service project to bring a clean water well to a village outside of Monrovia, Liberia. This will be the ongoing benefactor of all our fundraising activities for 2019.
