Requested & Expanded Announcements

October 12, 2014

 Offering ~ The children are so excited to be part of the “Noisy Offering”.  They are joyful givers and have  BIG ideas and plans to help others in need around the world.  We have decided to start out buying a  Beehive in Tanzania.  Raising bees not only provides a family with income but also improves plant    pollination throughout a whole community.  Our gift of a Beehive produces delicious honey for a family  to eat and sell to purchase basic necessities like soap, medicine and shoes as well as contributing to the  success of gardens and farms in the area.  The cost of a beehive is $30.  With your help we think we have  already purchased this!  Thank you church family!  Next we will work towards raising money to send a Literacy Book Set to Honduras.  Let’s keep giving “joyfully” together!

Wednesday Night Fellowship will be held on October 22 with supper beginning at 5:30 pm in the church  fellowship hall.
