With Thanks

I appreciate everything you guys have done for me and my family. I think back on all the times Mrs Doreenasked or texted me about attending a parent meet, and I thought to myself like I can't attend with my schedule. I am a single mother and I work two jobs so it's not possible.

What does your giving do?

Last Friday was our first Youth Group of the year with the kids and it was a huge success! We started off picking the kids up from school- making sure they got to Fellowship House safely. Then we hung out, ate pizza and played games- who doesn't like pizza and games eh! And then... a great multi-media Bible presentation on God the creator. This was followed by small groups where the kids got to ask questions and delve deeper in to who God is. The kids can't wait till next week..and the week after... and the week after that... see a pattern here?!

John 10:10 “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”
