Tabitha's Closet is scheduled twice a year, once
in the summer just before school starts and once in December. Children's
toys, clothes, and supplies are offered for free to people in our
community who need them.
Last fall our children and youth were involved in
raising money for Heifer International. They talked about this program
in Sunday School, and read several books about the Heifer Project,
including Beatrice's Goat. With the just over $400 that they
raised, they were able to donate a trio of rabbits ($60), a share
of a cow ($50), a goat ($120), a pig ($120), a flock of 10 chickens
($20), and a hive of honeybees ($30)!
The Prayer Shawl Ministry will be gathering on the
1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month from 12:30p.mó2:00p.m. Feel free
to pass by and do some knitting! If you donít know how to knit and
are interested in learning attend a gathering! To get more information
about where to meet, contact the Church Office at 377-8620 or via

Thank you to all who contributed money for school
children at our Sister Church in Nicaragua. Because of your generosity,
we were able to send $1,900+ before Christmas, and an additional
$550 after Christmas. The total, $2,400-2,500, is the level we covenanted
for. We rejoice in our church's faithfulness in providing for better
education for the children of Sabana Grande for several years now.
