Thank you to all the generous Angel Tree gift givers! 121 children in Johnson County will have smiles of delight this Christmas and the warmth of knowing someone cares for them through your generosity and compassion. A gospel tract was attached to each gift; please pray with us that the children and/or their caregivers will be drawn by our Father to read the good news, receive Jesus as Savior, and grow in His grace and love. May God return to you manifold blessing for blessing these children.
Words cannot express the love my family felt during the Homegoing of my mom, Donna (Bruer). The poinsettia is beautiful as were the kind words expressed, prayers offered and the meal that was provided. We are richly blessed to be a part of this body of believers. Thank you.
