Don, Camille and 15 of our youth attended the Winter Jam 2020 concert in St. Charles, MO. They left directly after church on February 9 and returned home in the wee hours of Monday morning. Twelve bands performed including Crowder, Building 429 and Newsong. It was an enjoyable event for all.
On February 16, the youth held a Canvas and Coffee fundraiser for their Christ in Youth summer trip. Kelly Cash led the class with painting a spring-themed masterpiece. Our appreciation is extended to everyone who participated and helped with the event. The youth raised $321.00 to help with their expenses. Thank you!

A BIG THANK YOU to those who supplied gifts – whatever they were for Operation Christmas Child. Also to our Adult Sunday School classes; and Central State Construction for their generous donation for the shipping costs. To so many who helped with the packing of boxes, too many to name, but you know who you are. And to Betty Jane’s Kitchen for breakfast items supplied and enjoyed by everyone after the boxes were filled. This is truly a loving and giving church and the boys and girls of Operation Christmas Child will be blessed. Thank you.

Veteran’s Day is Monday, November 11 and as I think about the honor those that served deserve; I do not believe that it is enough to say “Thanks” and celebrate them one day a year. I am also humbled to think that their sacrificial giving of self has provided for me so many freedoms and privileges. I think of the saying, “All gave some – Some gave all.” The Bible teaches that we are required to give if we are a follower of Jesus. It starts with us giving our life to the Lord and from then on we are called to give of our life, time, energy, and money. I believe that Veterans gave because they believed in the call, the cause, and their leaders. How much more should we, Christians, believe in our calling, the cause of Christ, and our Leader.
